Types of Loft Conversions

dormer loft conversion essex


There are different types of Dormer:

  • Gable fronted Dormer – these are sometimes called a dog house dormer
  • Hipped roof dormer – a dormer with a hipped roof
  • Flat roof dormer – you guessed it – it has a flat roof!
  • Shed Dormer – a single planed roof that is pitched at a shallow angle to the main roof

This option is most suitable for small loft conversions where there is limited space. It creates additional headroom for the new room(s) and affords additional space for the loft conversion stairs. The increased height created by the Dormer allows for more straightforward installation of bathroom fittings, if including an extra bathroom is your intention.

The Dormer Loft Conversion cost is all dependent on the size and type you are having built, enquire now for a free quote.

mansard loft conversion essex


Named after Francois Mansart, a French architect from the 17th century, a mansard roof is commonplace in the UK and a popular option for loft conversions London wide, in Colchester, and throughout the home counties. It has two slopes positioned at different angles, with one gradient at a steeper incline than the other and an almost flat surface at its peak adjoining the 2.

A mansard loft conversion maximises the available space within your loft, commonly built by raising the party/gable walls either side of the property to form the profile for the mansard before the creation of the timber frame. Mostly found on older properties, a large portion of loft conversions in London are mansard loft conversions.

hip to gable loft conversion essex

Hip-to-Gable Loft Conversion

Owners of detached and semi-detached properties typically choose the hip to gable loft extension. By extending the sloping sides of the roof outwards, the existing sloped roof is replaced with a vertical wall (gable) that reaches the same height as the peak of the roof. Double Hip-to-Gable loft conversions can be built in houses that have two sloping sides, rather than one. Hip-to-gable is a perfect option for a cheap loft conversion.

While Hip-to-Gable loft conversions with modular designs are constructed using steel frames, they are standardly built using timber. To match the tone of your existing brickwork, brick slip cladding can be installed with relative ease to maximise aesthetics. Whilst they tend to fall under permitted development which does not require planning permission, there is a possibility that you will, so it is always best to check with your local authorities when exploring any loft conversion design ideas and before starting construction.
