As bespoke builders covering Ockley, we offer many different types of property alterations. From single-storey builds to conservatories, and from new bathrooms to en-suite bedrooms, we plan, design and deliver high quality property extensions at affordable prices.
One of our most popular services is loft conversions. On this page, we look a little more deeply into what type of loft conversions our builders can add to your Ockley home.
Dormer – These types of property extensions involve constructing a vertical wall from the bottom of a sloping roof. The flat roof is then built to meet the upright wall in order to give maximum headroom for the occupants. Dormers are the most common types of loft conversions used in the UK because planning permission is rarely needed.
Mansard – The mansard shape is usually constructed at the rear of an Ockley property. This has a flat roof and a back wall that slopes inwards. Mansard loft conversions tend to be expensive and involve complex construction work. They are more commonly seen amongst terraced houses and usually require planning permission.
Hip to Gable – Hip to Gable loft conversions increase smaller existing space within properties with hipped roofs. The hipped side of a roof is changed to a flat gable end. Planning permission may be needed for this type of roof. It’s a stylish look and will work as a bedroom, office or even a bathroom. Property extensions like this will suit bungalows, semi-detached and detached homes in Ockley.
