What is it?
We really think that a dormer loft conversion is your best bang for buck in the loft conversion world.
Building out a ‘dormer’ from the existing ridge height creates a large living space, with a full height ceiling to the edge of the dormer. Installing windows and/or a Juliet balcony on the dormer, and velux windows on the pitched roof, you quickly make a large, light filled living space. Its an ideal master bedroom (often with en-suit), or due to the added space the dormer provides, 2 bedrooms and a small bathroom, and still with enough room for storage!
A dormer conversion usually includes:
|Installation of new structural steel beams
|Building out of the dormer (traditionally hung with tiles but can have a rendered finish)
|Installation of a new flat roof (over the dormer)
|Laying of new floor joists to meet modern regulation standards
|Laying of a new sub floor
|The custom creation and installing of a new flight of stairs
|Installing velux windows in pitched roof, and windows/balcony doors in dormer
|Extension of current central heating system to the loft space
|Insulating & plasterboarding throughout, a plaster finish and 2nd fix carpentry
Additionally you could add:
|Eaves storage space
|An en-suite bath or shower room
|Partition walls to create more than one room

“Andy’s management of the project was impeccable,updating us daily on how the job was progressing, giving us plenty of notice to make decisions on things like types of windows, positions of radiators etc and maintaining a clear line of communication between us and the subcontractors carrying out the additional works… I have to say it was a bittersweet experience when the lads finally finished and cleared out as we’d grown fond of having them around.”
