Loft Conversions

There are a number of excellent reasons to invest in a loft conversion.  Our customers choose to convert when they are expanding their family or business, require additional storage space, caring for elderly parents, choosing to work from home, or simply want to increase the value of their home.  A loft conversion can add 20% to the value of your property, while giving you the additional space to unwind stylishly and comfortably.

Types of Loft Conversions

Haven Designs provides every type of loft conversion including the following:

  • Bungalow loft conversions: bungalow loft conversions ultimately turn a one story building into a two storey one. Underpinning is therefore required to add the appropriate degree of strength to the walls.
  • Dormer loft conversions: A dormer loft conversion extends the existing roof by protruding from the slope of the roof, providing a flat ceiling and vertical walls which add headroom and floor space.
  • Hip to Gable-End loft conversions: In these conversions we build the gable wall to the ridge line and add additional sections of roof to accommodate it. This is a more in-depth loft conversion that is common for houses with hip roofs.
  • Mansard loft conversions: a mansard loft conversion occurs when one of the roof planes is altered so that it is nearly horizontal and vertical wall of the house is extended upward to meet it.
  • Velux loft conversions: This is one of the simplest loft conversions to complete in which Velux roof windows are installed into (and fit flush with) the roof plane or planes.  Planning permission is seldom required as not much alteration is needed.

Making a Decision About Loft Conversions

If you are considering a loft conversion, we can meet with you to determine whether this type of extension is right for your home.  This includes measuring factors such as structure type, head height and pitch angle and assessing whether or not there are any obstacles such as chimneys or water tanks.  We can discuss options and types and provide you with a free, non obligation quote.
