Mansard loft conversions give the most amount of space in your loft, however the entire roof must be replaced. For this reason the cost is really high and Planning permission is always required. The benefit of these conversions is that it can be used for any kind of room, hence of the size and space.
This type of loft is extension to the existing roof, which increases the volume of your attic. Dormer conversions can be positioned on any side of the roof, that is why it is the most popular among customers. It takes longer to install than some other conversions due to exterior work, however it can be built in few styles, namely, with gable front, a flat roof or with a hipped roof.
Hip to Gable loft conversions require major changes to the roof. It replaces the existing roof hip with a gable end wall, because it changes the outline of the roof planning permissions will be needed. This type of extension creates more natural look by matching roof tiles and potentially creates more space for your extra rooms.
This type of conversion it the most cost effective, which converts the loft space without altering the roofline of your house. Furthermore, usually it doesn’t require a Planning permission. The benefit of it is that windows lots in a lot more light, hence of the angle of lather.
