Conversions And Extensions | Roof Dormers
Dormer Conversions are a fantastic way to allow you to use previously unused space in the upper-most level of your house. With a plethora of benefits to your home, the only downside being it is not as aesthetically pleasing as other structural renovations. The construction involves taking an angle roof and extending it vertically, typically on the rear side of the house but with sufficient planning permission this can be done at the front of a property.
Things You Need To Check When Planning a Dormer Conversion
Dormer extensions are a very popular way to extend out and make use of the potential space in your loft/attic but there a few things to make sure you have taken into consideration in your plans. The type of Dormer Conversion is extremely important, you first need to decide on the form of your current roof/loft space and then choose one of the following to suit your needs; Single Dormer, Full Width Dormer, Side Dormer, L-Shaped Dormer (typically suitable for Victorian houses), Hip to Gable – however; if you are considering a “Roof-Off” Dormer conversion (Roof off/Roof Rebuild) you will need to select either a Mansard Conversion or a Prefabricated Loft.
Why Choose a Roof Dormer Conversion?
If you are growing frustrated at the footprint of your loft space without the upper space due to the angle of the loft then a Dormer Conversion is a fantastic option to gain extra space. Having three floors of space is perfect and gives you as the homeowner capacity to build an extra bedroom, office space or even extra storage. Within an ever-growing need for more space, many homeowners (especially families) initially consider moving home, but it is a far more costly and time consuming idea than building an extension. 4C’s will gladly help you through the process, from the initial ideas stage, right through to the last touches of your wonderful new dormer conversion.
