Our team converting a hip to gable roof
TYPES OF LOFT CONVERSION
The types of loft conversion design you can consider are Dormer, Mansard, Hip to Gable and Velux. The existing layout of the roof, and certain restrictions that apply, will determine the kind of loft conversion that the local authority will permit.
APT Renovation can advise you on this issue when we make our free, no obligation visit. Many clients ask “can we still live in our house during works?”
Our answer is simple: Yes! This is because 80% of the materials will be brought in via the roof.
The Dormer loft is built such that it squares off the top of an already existing sloping roof. This requires relatively straight forward building works. APT Renovation Carry out many of these across south London.
L Shape Mansard
For an L Shaped mansard roof to be constructed the property would require a back addition. Often a kitchen and bathroom or utility room is located at the back of the house. This allows the mansard to extend over this area. These are most commonly built on London Victorian properties.
While the name Velux isn’t actually a type of roof structure, it is a name of the most well known window brand. The original roof structure is retained, the roof space is made into a habitable room then the velux / velux styled windows are then fitted into to the roof.
Hip to Gable
Our hip to gable conversion projects are most regularly carried out on fully detached, semi detached or end of terrace houses. Hipped roofs are essentially a roof with either the left end sloping, the right end sloping of both ends sloping. The roof is extended out perpendicular to the slope.
