A dormer loft conversion is reshaping the roof to give greater internal height and space, this is most popular type of conversion in the Brighton area.
Within your dormer conversion we can often find the space for at least one bedroom and an en-suite bath or shower room.
All our dormers, are clad with a GRP flat roof to give the best protection from the elements. Typically they have Velux roof light windows on the front face of the roof and full sized UPVC windows at the rear.
Dormers are normally situated front eh back or side of your property, although you may have noticed some properties around Brighton with dormers on the front face of the roof. However these have various restriction on them, and so would need planning permission which is becoming increasingly hard to obtain.
In most cases dormer lofts are located on the side or rear of the roof and can be constructed without planning permission. Usually building a dormer to the front of the property would have various restrictions on them and are subject to planning permission. Dormer conversions are kept light and airy by utilizing Velux roof lights in combination with full sized UPVC windows at the rear.
A Hip to Gable conversion is typically only suitable for detached, semi detached and end of terrace properties. It involves extending the hip line of your roof to form a new gable end.
This type of conversion increases your roof space and so gives a greater area for conversion . Often the new gable end will also allow your new staircase to be installed directly above your existing one, maximizing usable floor space as well as creating flow through your home.
We have found that we are often able to find the space for two decent sized bedrooms and a bath or shower room within a hip to gable conversion.
