Types of Conversions

A mansard loft conversion has two slopes with the top section of the roof being almost horizontal.  A mansard roof has the advantage of maximizing the available space within your loft.


Hip To Gable

A hip to gable loft conversion involves making fairly major changes to the roof. As a general rule, houses with a hip roof tend to not have enough internal space to be a loft conversion to be practical, making a hip to gable conversion the perfect solution.


Rear Dormer

A dormer loft conversion is an extension to the existing roof, creating additional floor space and headroom within the loft conversion. Dormers can be built in various styles, but all extend from the roof slope, usually in a box shape.



Velux loft conversions very rarely require planning permission. Velux are the leading manufacturer of roof windows with over 60 years experience, and A1 are the largest independent client of VELUX products. This type of conversion is generally very cost effective.
