Mansard Loft Conversion – Mansard Roof Construction London

If you want to create as much space in your loft as possible, a Mansard loft conversion could be the answer. This type of extension, also known as a Mansard roof conversion, is a popular choice in London. It is similar to a box dormer but more traditionally constructed. In effect it provides your home with an extra storey, giving valuable additional living space to your family. A Mansard also features small leaded dormer windows.

Installing Mansard loft conversions means your loft will have a flat roof, with the back wall tilting inwards at a 72-degree angle. This design offers greater head height than some other styles of extension. A Mansard roof loft conversion is suitable for many different property styles, which can include terraced homes as well as semi-detached and detached buildings. It can be finished off with brickwork or slates to match the style of the rest of the home. In situations where it is possible to build a full roof extension, a front and rear Mansard is frequently used.

The style was introduced by French architect Francois Mansard (1598-1666), who is famed for his classical design. It is usually the most expensive type of roof conversion and typically requires planning permission, as well as the building regulations approval which is needed for all types of loft extension. Modern Attics can submit the planning application for you and keep you fully updated throughout.

One of the main reasons for deciding on a Mansard extension is the great difference it can make to the home in terms of the space it adds. The installation of windows also mean that a lot of light is brought in, making Mansard loft conversions suitable for use as bedrooms, playrooms or studies. These extensions can incorporate additional bathrooms if you choose, perhaps as an en suite to go with your brand new bedroom. A Mansard can also add value to the property if you come to sell in the future.
