Flat roof dormers
A flat roof dormer is a structure accompanied with windows or doors built on a sloped roof. This allows you to maximise your space, adding character, and design to a home. A flat roof dormer stands out against a flat surface and creates impeccable style.
Hipped to gable conversion
Most properties have a regular, ‘hipped’ roof with a sloping side. This means existing loft space is often limited, making it difficult to create a loft conversion without extending your property. This type of loft conversion extends your property on the sloping side, effectively replacing the sloping roof with a vertical wall (the gable) at the end to the same height as the ridge, and filling in the space in between
This option is generally adequate for those considering a smaller loft conversion where adequate height is available within the existing loft. Even within a confined loft space with the addition of a couple of roof windows this will allow you to create a light and airy room that maybe ideal for that extra bedroom, study or bathroom.
Gable fronted dormers
A gable front dormer consists of a simple pitched roof with two sloping planes, supported by a frame that rises vertically to form a triangular section below the roofline
