Before you get started on your loft conversion there’s few things you need to know. First of all check if your loft is suitable for a conversion. You can do this by checking the size of your loft from the floor to the ceiling, if the measurements are 2.2m or more at the higher point of the loft you should be fine and able to start the loft conversion. Another way of checking if your house is suitable for a loft conversion is by checking if any of your neighbours had it done, if yes it is more likely that you’ll be able to do it as well. In addition, you should be aware that most properties will come with an allowance for permitted development which means that you don’t have to worry about getting any permissions to carry out works on your loft conversion.The only expectation for this is if your roof isn’t tall enough or if you live in a conservation area. Another important step you should consider is your downstairs area as you will have to check if there’s enough space for a new staircase as even the most space saving staircase will take up a lot of the area of your downstairs space.

A protruding extension from the slope of the roof is known as dormer conversions. Flat-roof dormers have been in use for a long time and have been immensely popular. They can be added to any type of sloping roof house. Another benefit of dormer conversion is it is cheaper compared to hip-to-gable and mansard conversions.
If you are looking for the most affordable conversions, in that case, roof lights are the best option for you. When it comes to roof lights, no changes in the pitch or shape is required, hence they can be easily used without causing any disruption. For this kind of conversion to work the best, you should have sufficient space in the roof.
The next conversion is known as hip-to-gable conversion. This conversion works best when the sloping hip roof is extended in the outward direction. It gives rise to a gable wall, having a vertical look and giving rise to more internal space. This conversion is perfect for detached houses because it is based on a free sloping roof.
Do you have a house which is detached and has sloping roofs on both its sides? Well, with an arrangement, you can quickly build a hip-to-gable extension conveniently.
When it comes to Mansard extensions, it covers the entire length of your house and change the slope of the roof and thus allowing a vertical shape. Although it is an expensive option, it will give a significant and superb amount of space. This kind of conversation is ideal for houses starting from terraced to detached homes.
