A traditional but yet unrelentingly popular loft conversion is the dormer loft conversion. Using a vertical roof extension to create additional headroom within the property, this makes a great choice no matter what style of home you may live in. One of the additional benefits of building such a loft conversion is that it does not necessarily require planning permission. At LMB Group our trusted team will help you negotiate all aspects of the build, before, during and after to ensure everything is just the way you wanted it to be.
L-Shaped Dormer Conversion
Often regarded as the best choice for mid-terraced houses, the L-shaped dormer conversion uses two dormer extensions that are then joined together to form an L-shape. Depending on the size of your Brixton home, an L-shaped dormer can add anything between 20sqm-50sqm, giving a significant amount of extra floor space as well as plenty of eaves storage.
A hip-to-gable conversion involves replacing the sloping part of your roof (the hip) with a vertical wall (the gable). A hip-to-gable loft conversion is ideally suited to bungalows, detached or semi-detached properties – and is a great choice for customers with 1930s properties. If you are looking to create maximum space, you can create a double hip-to-gable conversion, or even combine it with a dormer conversion at the rear.
A highly individual looking loft conversion, a Mansard loft conversion is usually constructed to the rear of the property. Offering a stylish, flat-roof option, this is a type of loft conversion has been growing in popularity across urban areas such as Brixton during recent years. Named after 17th-century French architect Francois Mansard, a Mansard loft conversion offers a remarkable amount of space but almost always requires planning permission from the local authority and is at the higher end of the loft conversion pricing spectrum.
