Hip to Gable conversions are popular among homeowners with semi-detached or detached properties, end of terraces, and bungalows. The existing sloping roof is turned into a flat gable to increase available space.
Depending on various factors, a hip to gable extension may or may not require planning permission. We can help you with this and apply on your behalf.
Dormer loft conversions are the most common type requested by residents. With a dormer conversion we extend the existing roof vertically to create extra floor space and headroom.
To achieve this, it is important that at least half of the current floor space has a ceiling height of at least two metres or higher. Dormers usually do not require planning permission.
A Velux, or roof light loft conversion is the most simple and economical type available. With a Velux, the roof remains unchanged, other than the installation of attractive flush Velux windows to give plenty of natural light.
Typically, a Velux attic conversion does not need planning permission as the roof structure remains unchanged. This is the perfect solution if you want minimal outlay and disruption.
"We have finally just appointed Touchstone Lofts to complete our loft conversion - excellent service and very professional. We had many questions to begin with and after interviewing many loft experts - Paul was the most knowledgeable and listened to what we wanted whilst providing his guidance. We did visit the showroom and this helped immensely."
