Loft Conversion Types
The types of loft conversions can be many and varied. Here are a few descriptions of the
1 - Bungalow loft conversion (single storey to two storey) with or without dormer windows.
2 - A standard tow storey loft conversion (new loft conversion forms the new second floor or is also
commonly called three storey) with our without dormer windows.
3 - A roof extension normally a hip to gable end conversion to create more internal floor space either in
single to two storey applications and with or without dormer windows.
4 - Other?
5 - Traditionally carcassed roof structures where the roof has been made on site using standard joinery
timbers. These roofs are the normal ones good for a loft conversion.
6 - A pre-formed trussed rafter roof where the trusses are made in a factory (rafters, ceiling joists and
internal struts and ties) and brought onto site on a lorry. These roof structures do not make for easy conversion
and will double the cost of a loft conversion for major structural and practical problems that need to be
accommodated within any loft conversion design.
