Brief about Essex

Essex is a county in the south-east of England, north-east of London.

There are different types of Loft Conversions determined with the kind of loft you have, that you can choose from such as-

  • Dormer Loft Conversion -

Dormer Loft Conversion is the most common and straightforward alternative, providing you with a flat roof and a good set of windows to look through.

  • Hip to Gable Conversion -

The sloping roof is removed and the roof is constructed by raising the gable.

  • Mansard Loft Conversion -

By removing one or both of the slopes, the Mansard Conversion creates the most internal space possible.

  • Velux Loft Conversion -

The key feature of this conversion is its cost-effectiveness. This has no impact on the form of the roof, and the window's unique placement provides excellent stargazing.


  • L-Shaped Conversion -

This sort of conversion provides you with a good headroom as well as an outlook resembling that of a normal room. This is the best option for the properties that want more space.

You have a variety of loft conversions to choose from. You can choose to have the most suitable conversions for you that will be determined by your house design, type of roof, house age, and your budget.

The Loft Conversion is one of the most cost-effective and economically convenient ways to utilize extra space as well as adding that “it value” to your homes. It is the most accurate way to add a significant value to your home, hence being an option opted for by many families across the UK.

Advantages of Getting a Loft Conversion -

A loft conversion is a simple process where the attic of the house is reinforced so that it can be used as a proper bedroom or any other room. Not all houses are the same so it is not possible to do the same kind of loft conversion in every single house, there are various types of loft conversions, and the cost of getting these loft conversions also differs. The purpose of a loft conversion remains the same. Here are some advantages:

  • Less Expense -

Rather than spending so much on shifting, it is better to use the same amount of money to get a loft conversion. This would save a lot of time and money and you get to customize the room however you want.

  • A kind of an Investment  -

The biggest advantage of getting a loft conversion is that it increases the property value by 15-20%. When you sell the house you can show the lofted room to be an exclusive feature of the house and most of the houses with a lofted room are attractive and sell fast. So getting a loft conversion is an investment rather than an expense.

  • Energy Efficient -

When you get a loft conversion there is plenty of sunlight inside the room and you don't have to invest in LED bulbs or any other lighting equipment. This natural light is also a source of vitamin D and this light can help in preventing a lot of diseases.

Victorian and Edwardian Houses

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.

End of Terraced and Semi Detached Houses

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.

1920s and 1930s Houses

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.

Flats, Maisonettes and Conservation Areas

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.
