ABOUT DORMER LOFT CONVERSIONS
Dormer loft conversions are a popular choice because they’re cost-effective and suit most house styles. With this type of loft conversion part of the existing roof is removed, and a bigger space created by building a ‘box’ frame structure, projecting from the top of the roofline with either a flat or sloping roof. Internally dormers have vertical straight walls and a horizontal ceiling, going against the slanted walls where it joins to the original roof.

Building a dormer onto an existing roof can transform a cramped and dark loft into new usable space with lots of natural light and ventilation.
This type of conversion is perfect for maximising practical ceiling height, allowing for additional bedrooms, en-suite, built in wardrobes and offers flexibility with staircase layout. There are also flexible design choices depending on your budget, including adding large windows or even French doors and a Juliet balcony.
Dormer loft conversion can be constructed without gaining planning permission, although planning permission may be required depending on the size and certain specifications.
