TYPES OF LOFT CONVERSION in North London
Once you have decided that a loft conversion is the right choice for your North London home, you will need to figure out which type of loft conversion is suitable for your property. This is something we will help you with at Firtree Building Services. Your choice will depend on a few factors, such as the type of roof you have, what you want to use the space for, and your budget.
The three types of loft conversions are:
- Internal Loft Conversions
- Dormer Loft Conversions
- Roof Off Loft Conversions
INTERNAL LOFT CONVERSIONS
Internal loft conversions are the simplest and cheapest choice as they require very little work to be carried out. The existing loft space requires minimal alterations and some small additions from roof windows, insulation, and stronger flooring.
ROOF OFF LOFT CONVERSIONS
This type of loft conversion requires the current roof to be removed and replaced with a brand new structure. You will require this type of loft conversion if the headroom in your loft space is lacking. By having a new roofing structure installed, your loft space will have the needed headroom to create extra living space in your home.
DORMER LOFT CONVERSIONS
A dormer loft conversion involves adding dormer windows to your loft space, which increase the height of the room. While they are usually added to the back of a property, if you have the required planning permission, they can be added to the front or side.

- Single Dormer
- Full Width Dormer
- Side Dormer
