Mansard conversions - This type of loft conversion involves one or both slopes of the roof being replaced with a new structure with very steep sloping sides (almost as steep as the walls). An almost flat roof is placed over the top. This design is used where the original roof had little or no headroom and creates sufficient volume for an additional floor. Mansard conversions normally require planning permission.
Pre-fabricated loft - Where vertical space inside a roof is limited, the existing roof structure can be replaced with a larger one. “Room in the roof” trusses can be craned in place to form the shell. The roof can then be constructed around them. But living without a roof for over a month is no fun! But a pre-fabricated unit can be watertight in a couple of days.
