Loft Conversions Specialists

But if you need more space, it can seem like a necessary option. However, this is not the case, as you have many other options to consider before going through the motions of selling your home for a bigger property, including considering extensions or loft conversions in Essex. A loft conversion is an excellent way of using the dead space in your property, which can be around 20% of your total floor space, transforming it into a functional area of the home completely tailored to your needs and budget.

There are lots of ways a hip-to-gable attic conversion can be tailored to your needs, as it can be paired with a rear dormer loft conversion. This enables optimal loft space to be created, making it a very attractive option for Essex property owners. However, hip-to-gable loft extensions can only be completed on semi-detached and detached properties, and not mid-terrace properties. This is due to the lack of a hip ended roof for mid-terrace houses, which would suit a rear dormer loft conversion better. Bungalows and chalets also find the hip-to-gable conversion a good choice for their home.

A hip-to-gable loft conversion can take between approximately 8-10 weeks to be built.

Hip-to-Gable Loft Conversions Essex

A hip-to-gable loft conversion in Essex is well-suited for semi-detached or detached properties which have a hipped roof, where the ends of the roof are sloped inward like the rear and front roof sides. The sloping sides on either end of the property are adjusted to be straight, so that more headspace or height is available in the loft space. This new vertical wall is called a gable, hence the name hip-to-gable.

Mansard Loft Conversions Essex

Mansard loft conversions in Essex are a very popular choice, with many Essex families opting for this type of attic conversion due to the large amount of space it creates. Not only does it create more headspace, but it also allows more usable cubic metres of space. It is the loft conversion which requires the most amount of construction work and is therefore the most disruptive, however they are considered one of the most aesthetically pleasing types of loft conversion. They are suitable for most property types, including mid-terraces.

A mansard loft conversion is built on the rear of the property, altering the slope of the original roof completely by making it almost straight at a gradient of 72 degrees. There are lots of options for mansards, with Juliet balconies and space for multiple rooms to be created.

Mansard loft conversions typically take between 8 to 12 weeks to build.

Dormer Loft Conversions Essex

Homeowners in Essex tend to favour this type of loft conversion, as it can add up to 50 cubic metres of additional space to your property, depending on the specifics of your property and local restrictions. It is built from the existing sloped roof of your property, adding lots of headroom, which can be transformed into a naturally bright space with the addition of Velux skylights. Most of the work involved with rear dormer loft conversions can be completed from scaffolding on the outside of your property, so it minimises the disruption you experience from domestic construction projects typically.

The ceiling height for a dormer loft conversion in Essex varies, with a traditional roof being 2.2 to 2.4 metres high, with a minimum trussed roof height of 2.4 to 2.6 metres. If you want a habitable space, you will need at least 2.3 metres of height. It is important to note that this height does not need to be maintained throughout the entire conversion, with bathrooms being ideal to fit under a lower section of the roof or roof slope. If the head height is lower than 2.3 metres, it is possible to lower the ceilings of the floor below.

Velux Loft Conversions Essex

A Velux loft conversion, otherwise known as a Skylight conversion, is the cheapest conversion option, being incredibly simple in its design. It does not alter the structure of the roof because it simply adds skylight or Velux windows to the existing roof structure. This brings in more light to your loft, which is ideal if you want to convert your attic space into a bedroom, office or studio.

There are several types of windows you can choose from. A popular favourite for this type of loft conversion is a cabrio system, that allows the window to open up into a balcony. Other options include smart windows and glazing choices.
