Rooflight or “Velux” Conversion
The preferred choice for many homeowners in Solihull a Valux conversion does not involve the use of dormer windows and there isnt any need to build a roof extension. If your property is in a conservation area most likely dormers would not be approved anyway, which makes a Valux loft conversion the only option. Fortunately there are no restrictions on the amount of rooflights you can install. The brand Velux manufacture rooflights in all shapes and sizes that can be top opening or centre pivoted. They also produce “Terrace” and an attractive style named “Cabrio”.
Hip To Gable Conversion
The hip to gable is a type of loft conversion where substantial modifications are made to the property roof. During the construction, the wall is built to the same height as the line of the ridge, and essentially an entire new roof is made to fill in the gap. There are a number of options you can choose for the gable wall such as block work with render, roof tiles, or brickwork. You can also decide to match the new roof with the existing bricks or wall design of the home.
Planning permission is usually required for hip to gable loft conversions in Solihull because significant changes are being made to the property. Whichever type of loft conversion you decide to go for, you can be sure that we are highly experienced loft conversion experts and have already performed conversions for dozens of delighted customers throughout Solihull.
Dormer Loft Conversions in Solihull
A dormer loft conversion involves building a dormer window, with a dormer that can have a pitched roof, a pitched gable roof, or a flat roof.
For those homeowners reading this who would like a little more space in their new attic room Dormer loft conversions are an idea choice, or indeed for homeowners who have a hipped roof. A current trend is converting a loft into a master suite for which large rear dormers are ideal, because they enable you to create a large bedroom with a dressing area and en-suite bathroom. Basically, what a dormer does is create additional headspace which is not possible with a Velux loft conversion.
Flat Roof Conversions
Although flat roofs tend to have a bad reputation, you don’t have to be concerned because our flat roof conversions are not entirely flat. The advantage of a flat roof dormer loft conversion is it provides substantial additional space. Where possible, we tile hang the dormer so it matches your existing roof.
If you convert your loft to include an en-suite bathroom we recommend installing a shower over a full-sized bath, as this allows the room to remain compact and not take up too much space. Generally speaking, an en-suite bathroom will easily fit into your loft conversion.
Mansard Loft Conversions
Another popular choice for Solihull homeowners is the Mansard loft conversion. A Mansard conversion is placed at the back of the house with a dormer sloped at around 70 degrees. Where possible we will use bricks that keep with the character of your existing building.
