Loft Specialists – Modern Attics – Loft Styles, London

Loft Conversion Barnet, North London

Loft Specialists Modern Attics offer several different loft styles in the London area: dormer, hip to gable, Mansard, roofline and eco-friendly. The one you choose will depend on your property, the type of roof, budget, personal preference and any planning constraints you may be subject to. Here is a brief guide to each style:

DORMER ATTIC EXTENSION – This is a common way to achieve the maximum amount of floor space and headroom in an attic. It means building a vertical wall and horizontal ceiling so that the extension juts out from either the back, front or side of the roof slope, depending on the design of your property.

HIP TO GABLE LOFT CONVERSION – This is suitable for detached, semis, end terraces or bungalows with ‘hipped’ roofs and increases the internal attic space. It involves making a big change to a roof by altering a sloping end to a flat side to create more room indoors.

MANSARD LOFT EXTENSION – This is generally the most expensive type of roof conversion, because it involves making a significant change to a roof to maximise the loft space. It involves the creation of two roof slopes, including one that tilts inwards at 72 degrees.

ROOFLINE ATTIC CONVERSION This is a great value-for-money extension that doesn’t generally need planning permission. It involves installing Velux windows to let the light in, without making any changes to the shape of the roof.

ECOFRIENDLY ATTIC EXTENSIONS – link to) As the demand for environmentally friendly homes increases, we offer a variety of eco-friendly alternatives for modern loft conversions.

Converting your loft brings a host of benefits, from increasing your living space to avoiding all the upheaval and expense of moving house; and it can also add significant value to your home. Experts say that an attic conversion is one of the best ways to improve your property as it adds as much as 20% to the sale value.
