One of the most popular types of loft conversions.
This option is most suitable for small loft conversions where there is limited space. It creates additional headroom for the new room(s) and affords additional space for the loft conversion stairs. The increased height created by the Dormer allows for more straightforward installation of bathroom fittings, if including an extra bathroom is your intention.

Velux are the leading manufacturer of roof windows with over 60 years experience. The name Velux has become synonymous with this type of conversion, which is generally very cost effective and does not normally need planning permission.
Velux windows are installed to fit flush with the line of the roof, leaving the existing roof structure untouched. As they do not require extensive alterations, this option helps to keep costs down. As the loft is not extended beyond the original roof line, planning permission is not normally required (but you should still check with your local planning department before proceeding with any works).
A Velux loft conversion works very well for lofts where there is a good amount of headroom, or if there are constraints on planning, for example if you live in a conservation area. If headroom is going to be limited then either a dormer or mansard conversion may be a better option. Velux roof-lights can be fitted quickly and easily meaning there is minimal disruption, or delays due to bad weather.
Named after Francois Mansart, a French architect from the 17th century, a mansard roof is commonplace in the UK and a popular option for loft conversions London wide, in Essex, and throughout the home counties. It has two slopes positioned at different angles, with one gradient at a steeper incline than the other and an almost flat surface at its peak adjoining the 2.
A mansard loft conversion maximises the available space within your loft, commonly built by raising the party/gable walls either side of the property to form the profile for the mansard before the creation of the timber frame.
Mostly found on older properties, a large portion of loft conversions in London are mansard loft conversions.
Owners of detached and semi-detached properties typically choose the hip to gable loft extension. By extending the sloping sides of the roof outwards, the existing sloped roof is replaced with a vertical wall (gable) that reaches the same height as the peak of the roof. Double Hip-to-Gable loft conversions can be built in houses that have two sloping sides, rather than one. Hip-to-gable is a perfect option for a cheap loft conversion.
While Hip-to-Gable loft conversions with modular designs are constructed using steel frames, they are standardly built using timber. To match the tone of your existing brickwork, brick slip cladding can be installed with relative ease to maximise aesthetics. Whilst they tend to fall under permitted development which does not require planning permission, there is a possibility that you will, so it is always best to check with your local authorities when exploring any loft conversion design ideas and before starting construction.
