Hip to Gable conversions are popular among Windsor 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 Windsor 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 Windsor 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.
Windsor is a historic market town located in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, most famous for Windsor Castle, an official residence of the Royal Family.
The town has a fabulous well-connected situation; it is just over 20 miles from Charing Cross in London, and 22 miles from Reading.
Most of the town’s streets date from the mid to latter part of the 19th century, but Peascod Street, which is the main street, is far older than the castle that was finished in 1086. Parts of Peascod Street date as far back as Saxon times.
Windsor is a popular tourist destination, and due to the many visitors, the town has some fabulous amenities usually only found in larger cities, including first-class hotels, a theatre, and two train stations.
As a tourist town, there are many souvenir shops selling gifts based on the castle, along with restaurants to suit all tastes, quaint British pubs and large modern department stores.
Windsor is accessible M4 and from Slough via a dual carriageway. Bus services frequently run to and from Heathrow Airport and Victoria Coach Station.
With its fascinating history, perfect commuting location and job openings in the tourist industry, Windsor is an extremely desirable location, and as such, property sells at a premium.
Touchstone has converted many lofts in Windsor, for both homeowners who do not want the hassle and expense of moving when their family outgrows their living space, and for those who buy a home in Windsor with fewer rooms that they actually need. A loft conversion allows buyers to keep their mortgage as low as possible and expands the lower priced home to suit a families’ needs while increasing the property price at the same time.
