Hip to Gable conversions are popular among Acton 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 Acton 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 in Acton 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.
Acton is a district of West London located in the Borough of Ealing. The area has a population of around 54,000, and is the home of the largest housing estate in West London. During past times, Acton was well known for its health spas due to the benefits of its unusually soft water and this later became a reason for many laundries to open in the area – at one stage Acton boosted 170 laundries!
Acton has some fabulous parks, and the Gunnersbury Park is beautiful and features an interesting museum which once served as a residence of the Rothschilds. Alternatively there is Acton Park, which is one of the most striking West London green spaces, especially during the autumn months.
