Wrap around dormer


If you’re currently toying with the idea of moving house due to needing additional living space, why not consider a loft conversion. A loft conversion in Tipton is a great way to add extra living space such as a bedroom to your home without costing the earth. In fact, it’s estimated that in some homes, there’s 30% extra space just sitting there under your roof unused, so why go through the hassle and expense of moving home when you could tap in to the space already available in your home, for a very affordable cost.
The great thing about a loft conversion is that because of the recent law change which enables homeowners to undertake some extension work without requiring planning permission, you may be able to carry out a loft conversion without having to go through a load of paper work and consents.
Many people might find their loft space is on the small side, and really only suitable for converting in to a storage area, and while that’s fine for some people, adding a bedroom or other such living area to their loft is really the big appeal as this also has the added bonus of increasing your homes worth as well, which is great if it ever comes time to sell.
If you’re one of these people where you find your roof slopes in such a way that a lot of headroom is unavailable, consider a simple dormer or wrap around dormer installation. For a loft that is just lacking in headroom above the stairs, a standalone dormer may be all you need – this is essentially a small loft extension that protrudes from the plane of the sloping roof, adding additional headroom inside. A window can also be added to this dormer, which will let in additional light and in most cases make it more visually appealing.
If however you suffer from a lack of headroom on a larger scale then a wrap around dormer could be the answer to your problems. This is similar to a normal dormer; however this dormer wraps around two or more planes of the roof, usually the rear and side. Again, windows can be added to the dormer to let in natural sunlight and make it look more visually appealing. Dormers can be built in many different styles, including a gable fronted dormer, flat roof dormer or a hip roof dormer. By hiring professional loft converters to undertake this work, they’ll be able to advise on the type of dormer right for you, and the appropriate style of dormer to fit in with your existing house.
A loft conversion and dormer really is a great way to make the most of the unused space in your loft, without needing a huge budget. There are many professional attic converters to choose from, although if you’re in the West Midlands area then it pays to check out Warmer’s Lofts, as they’ve been carrying out loft conversions for years.
