Also known as a rooflight conversion, a Velux loft conversion is a cost-effective choice that, typically, doesn't require planning permission, which makes it one of the simplest, too. This type of conversion doesn't require any changes to the roof structure; instead, it's the process of making the loft space liveable and installing contemporary Velux windows flush with the roof. In Essex, this is one of the most popular types of conversion, especially in semi-detached properties.
This type of conversion is an extension to the existing roof that protrudes from the existing slope, usually in the middle. The benefit of a dormer loft conversion is that, internally, the roof is horizontal, and the walls vertical which provide more usable space. For instance, a previously all-sloped ceiling can attain enough headroom for a practical bedroom. There are numerous sub-types of dormer conversion, too, including flat roof, hipped roof, and a gable-fronted dormer loft conversion.
The Mansard conversion features two slopes and is one of the most effective loft conversions to maximise space in your loft. However, due to the length of work involved, it is also one of the costliest types of renovations.

Hip to Gable
A hip to gable conversion is one of the lengthiest to complete as it involves significant changes to the roof structure. This conversion consists of a gable wall being built to the ridge line and a new section of roof being constructed to create enough useable space for practical living. If you previously thought that converting your loft wouldn't be possible, a hip to gable loft conversion could make it so.
