    A dormer loft conversion is a form of conversion that involves an extension to the loft’s structure. The dormer as the added element called is a vertical space that overhangs vertically from the sloping roof.

As a result of this type of conversion, the roof is flat and windows are located within dormers.

    An increasingly popular form of creating extra room at larger properties, hip-to-gable loft conversions are a great choice when looking for a solid way of increasing your loft space. If you live in a detached or semi-detached house with a hipped roof, a hip-to-gable loft conversion is what you need.

    A hip-to-gable loft conversion involves extending the side roof area, resulting in the hipped roof, which formerly sloped inwards, being transformed into a vertical wall, changing your hip roof to a gable roof. This provides the benefits of increased space and headroom in your loft space. This can also be combined with rear dormer loft conversions, which results in an even greater increase in space all around. Planning permission isn’t usually necessary in order to design this type of loft conversion. Most hip-to-gable loft conversions are within permitted development conditions and do not require full planning permission.
