One of the most requested loft conversions across the Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames, is the dormer loft conversion. This style uses a vertical roof extension to create additional headroom within the property. One of the supplementary benefits of building a dormer loft conversion is that it does not necessarily require planning permission. At LMB Group our skilled construction professionals will help you negotiate all aspects of the build, before, during and after to make sure everything is just the way you wanted it to be.
L-Shaped Dormer Conversion
If you live in a mid-terraced house, then the L-shaped dormer conversion may be the design to opt for. As the name suggests, it forms an L-shape by using two dormer extensions that join together. Depending on the size of your Kingston property, an L-shaped dormer can add floor space of around 50sqm, giving a great deal of extra room, 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 best suited to bungalows, detached or semi-detached properties – and is a great choice for customers with 1930s properties. To provide maximum effectiveness and space, you can create a double hip-to-gable conversion, or even combine it with a dormer conversion at the rear of the building.
Offering a stylish, flat-roof option, this type of loft conversion has been growing in popularity across urban areas over recent years and would sit well, with many Kingston properties. A highly individual looking loft conversion, a Mansard loft conversion is usually constructed to the rear of the house. Named after 17th-century French architect Francois Mansard, it offers maximum space but almost always requires planning permission from the local authority and is at the higher end of the loft conversion pricing spectrum.
