Loft conversions are an ideal solution for families requiring additional rooms and space. Here at Kiberick we specialise in several types of loft conversions. Such as, Single dormer loft conversions, large dormers, mansard, L-shape dormers & hip to gable conversions.
A dormer (window) is an extension to the existing roof, allowing for additional floor space and headroom within the loft conversion. Dormers protrude from the roof slope, normally at the rear of the property and can be built in a variety of styles. Internally, a dormer will have a horizontal ceiling and vertical walls compared to the normal diagonal sides of a conversion. In lofts that have limited space or headroom a dormer will provide additional space that can make a conversion feasible.
Flat roof dormers tend to give the maximum amount of additional internal space although they do not look as attractive from outside the property. Gable fronted and hipped roof dormers look much more attractive but they often do not give as much internal space and will cost more to build due the extra complexity.
Hip to Gable
The vast majority of properties will have a 'hipped' roof with a sloping side. This means existing loft space is limited in height, therefore limiting your options for maximising the space with a conversion. By opting for a hip to gable conversion you are able to maximise the amount of available loft space & making it possible to use the space for additional living areas. A hip to gable conversion is normally accompanied by a rear dormer or can be just a straight Velux/rooflight conversion to maximise the use of the space.
