LOFT CONVERSIONS

So, what exactly is a loft conversion? Well, simply put, it's the process of transforming the empty space in your attic into a fully-functional living area. This means that you can turn that dusty old storage space into a beautiful new bedroom, home office, or even a home gym!

The great thing about a loft conversion is that it's a flexible solution that can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Whether you're looking to create a new space for your growing family, or you just want a peaceful retreat where you can work from home, a loft conversion can be designed to meet your every requirement.

But that's not all! A loft conversion is also a fantastic way to add value to your home. By creating an additional living space, you'll be increasing the overall square footage of your property, which can lead to a significant increase in its value.

Of course, the process of converting your loft isn't something that you should attempt on your own. Instead, you'll want to work with a team of experienced builders and contractors who specialize in this type of work. This is where we come in. We'll be able to guide you through every step of the process, from initial planning and design to final construction.

So, if you're looking for a way to add more space and value to your home, a loft conversion is definitely something to consider. With Gibbons & Co Construction by your side, you can turn your loft into a beautiful and functional living space that you and your family will love for years to come.

DORMER 2

Dormer

A Dormer loft conversion involves fixing a box-shaped structure

into your home's pitched roof (sloped roof).

The dormer's right angles provide a level roof rather than one that is sloped, providing adequate headroom and classic room shape dimensions.

A Dormer lets in a lot of natural light and offers superb views of the outside as the main windows face directly outwards. 

This is an ideal choice for those who want to create a

larger living area.

Hip To Gable

Hip-to-Gable loft conversions are suited for any detached, semi-detached, or end-of-terrace house with a hipped roof and three sides that slope equally downhill from the top.

 

The loft space is created by converting one of the hip roof sides into a gable roof, resulting in a triangular-shaped, vertical end wall. The new gabled section of the roof adds height and floor area to the new loft roommaking it a great option for those with a smaller loft area.

MANSARD 2

Mansard

If you want to substantially improve the size of your loft space, a Mansard loft conversion is the largest loft renovation option for you.  

A Mansard loft conversion is often erected in the back of your property, with a horizontal roof and a nearly vertical 72-degree back wall.

This not only creates a great deal of loft space, but it also results in ideal room-like proportions.

 

Windows in a Mansard are typically contained in a box-shaped Dormer that projects slightly, expanding internal space and allowing natural light to flow in. Furthermore, because the windows  are vertically facing outwards, the Mansard loft conversion appears to have always been a part of your home. 

Velux

Rooflight loft conversions are another name for Velux loft conversions.

Velux is the world's largest maker of roof windows, with over

60 years of expertise in the industry. The roof line is unaffected with

this form of conversion since the Velux windows are fitted flush to the roof line, leaving the existing roof structure untouched. As a result, this sort of loft conversion often does not usually require planning clearance, which is what distinguishes it from the others. Furthermore, because no major changes should be required to the roof, it is likely to help keep the conversion costs low. ​

BENEFITS

HIP TO GABLE

Hip to gable, Mansard, Velux, and Dormer loft conversions each have their own unique benefits, and the best choice for you will depend on your specific needs and preferences.

Here is a comparison of the benefits of

each type of loft conversion:

Hip to gable

A hip to gable loft conversion can provide more usable floor space and headroom than a Velux conversion, and may offer more natural light than a mansard conversion. It is a good option for homes with a hipped roof, as it involves extending the roof to create additional space.

The only home that isn’t structurally suitable for a Hip-to-gable is a mid-terrace property.

Mansard

A mansard loft conversion provides the most usable floor space of any type of loft conversion and can add significant value to your property. It is a good option for homes in urban areas where space is limited, as it involves creating a vertical wall on one or both sides of the roof.

Velux

A Velux loft conversion is a cost-effective and quick way to add more natural light and usable space to your home. It is a good option for homes that do not require major structural changes to the roof and for those on a tighter budget. 

Dormer

A dormer loft conversion provides additional headroom and natural light and can be designed to fit with the existing style of your home. It is a good option for homes with a sloping roof or limited headroom and can provide additional usable floor space.

Dormer loft conversions come in a range of styles to fit your home. The most prominent are:

L-shaped Dormer

An L-shaped Dormer creates an abundance of room fundamentally because it is made up of two connected Dormers that form an L-shape.


Side Dormer

Side dormers are built into the roof slope on the side facing the house. They are great for adding room to a home with a roof ridge that extends from front to back.

Flat Roof Dormer

A flat roof Dormer is often erected towards the back of your home and has, you guessed it, a flat, horizontal roof. It typically expands the breadth of your home, effectively supersizing your area. 


Front Pitched Dormer

Also known as a Gable Dormer, a Front Pitched Dormer is a small dormer with a little gable roof.

VELUX
DORMER
MANSARD

Ultimately, the choice between a Hip to gable,

Mansard, Velux, or Dormer loft conversion will depend on a range of factors, including the size and shape of your roof, your budget, and your specific

needs and preferences. We can help you determine

which type of conversion is best for you.
