A loft conversion is a popular choice as there are so many styles and designs available to choose from. Some of the most common ones are,
For houses with small headroom measurements, this is one of the most suitable methods of loft conversions. It is built out with the existing slope of the roof meaning that it is basically an extension of the existing part of the roof. It is a very popular method in Merton mainly because it is a very cost-effective method that creates additional head and floor space. It is completed within weeks and thus causes minimum havoc in the client’s house.
It is built by raising the party wall on both sides of the house which creates a profile for the mansard and this then allows a timber frame to be constructed. Planning permissions are required for this and it is also expensive due to the structural requirement of the conversion. It provides much-needed extra space in the house but at the same time requires dramatic alterations to be made.
This method extends the roof along the hip which is converted into a vertical wall called the gable. It is also one of the most popular methods as it maximizes the head and floor space. It is mainly used for semi-detached and end of terrace properties. This conversion looks good and provides a lot of usable space while at the same time is not very expensive.
It is the simplest method of all and also a popular one. With minimum roof destruction, it allows for the property to be fitted through windows. It requires no planning permits and is suitable for properties with planning constraints. It is cost-effective and provides a sufficient amount of headspace.
This is entirely based on what the client wants. The loft conversion is customized according to the specifications of the customers from planning to the final part.
Nowadays, the only views that you can enjoy as a resident of a busy city are those of roads, offices, and housing estates. Most of the houses lack a view which is why when you opt for a loft conversion, a feature that comes with it is that of a pleasant and stunning view.
Rooms in the attic naturally have a higher view out of the windows and this allows the people to enjoy the location and the landscape, both. You can have specialized windows added in the loft and get different styles of balconies built according to your wishes.
This allows you to view the regular views with a whole new perspective and gives you immense joy if you are a scenic lover.
Most people are unaware of the benefits that a loft conversion has in terms of home energy efficiency and the low costs that are required to run them. They are one of the least energy-consuming parts of the house.
The reason for the same lies in the science of attic conversion. Heat rises from bottom to top, thus it is supposed to be trapped by the roof of the attic else it will escape to the outer atmosphere. Therefore, it is essential to add reinforcements in the walls, roofs, etc, to add insulations and to ensure that the room stays warm and cozy during the winters. This will also ensure that hot air does not seep into the room in summer. This will keep your entire house well insulated and cut down your costs on installing a centralized heater for the house.
Also, due to the fitting of large windows in the lofts, the majority of the day there is plenty of natural light in the room. Most of the other rooms in the house are likely to be blocked by furniture, or buildings that are there on the street, however, it is not the same for the loft as it is located at a higher point than the other rooms.

There are a lot of loft conversion companies that have a team of experts especially tailored to meet your needs and give you the best service and options possible.
The most common loft conversions are done on these types of houses across London. These houses mostly have high ceilings and large rooms and a conversion works best when the design retains the natural character of the building.
If you live in an end of terraced or semi-detached house, your property is ideal for a loft conversion. There are two main types of loft conversion that are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes: hip to gable loft conversions and dormer loft conversions.
Many properties in the UK were build in the 1920s or 1930s (pre-war period). Such houses are great for loft conversions, you can easily add either a dormer loft conversion, a hip to gable loft conversion or a Velux loft conversion. The type we build will depend on the structure of your home and roof we can guide you on the best approach.
If you happen to live in a conservation area, the local council may not permit you to have a rear dormer, but they might let you have a mansard or a combination of Velux roof windows and small dormers. Loft conversions in flats and Maisonettes are the ultimate way of gaining that precious extra space.
