Types of Available Loft Extensions
While you have chosen to invest in a loft conversion, you may not be aware that there are many types of Enfield loft extensions available to choose from. The various types of extension depend on the type of loft you have, and which would best suit the space available, but we are happy to discuss the options in detail with you.
There are three types of loft extensions in Enfield that we can provide, including:
- Internal Loft Conversions
- Dormer Loft Conversions
- Roof Off Loft Conversions
Internal loft conversion are the simplest and cheapest option available, as they require very little work to be carried out. Your existing loft space will require minimal alterations, with some small additions such as roof windows, insulation, and stronger flooring.
Dormer loft conversions involve a little more work being carried out as it involves adding dormer windows to your loft space. These increase the height of the room and are usually added to the back of a property, though they can be added to the front or side if you have the required planning permission. There are a variety of dormer conversions, including:
- Single Dormer
- Full Width Dormer
- Side Dormer
- L-Shape Dormer
- Hip to Gable
Finally, we have the roof off loft conversion, which is exactly what you would expect from the name. This conversion involves removing the current roof and replacing it with a brand new structure. This method is required if your loft space lacks any headroom. By adding this new roofing structure, your loft will benefit from increased headroom, creating a great living space.
As we mentioned above, the type of Enfield loft extensions we carry out will depend on your loft space and available budget. However, we are happy to discuss the options and advise you as to which method would best work on your property.
