Types of Loft Conversions

Depending on your home’s existing structure, space requirement, and budget, you can choose from four basic types and contact our loft conversion builders in Southampton for your project:

  • Rooflight loft conversion
  • Hip-to-gable conversion
  • Mansard conversion
  • Dormer Conversion

Our loft conversion specialists in Southampton will conduct an initial assessment of your home to check which types of loft conversions can be carried out and whether you would require planning permission.

Some roof structures may not require significant alterations for loft conversions, while others may require complete roof replacement. All these loft conversions have their benefits and associated costs, but with us, you can be sure of the most competitive rates in the market.

Loft Conversions and Planning Permission Approval

Since the UK government revised permitted development rights, many loft conversions do not require planning permission approval from the local council. Simple loft conversions like the rooflight conversion, which does not involve any significant alterations to your roof, do not require planning permission. In most cases, hip-to-gable and dormer conversions may also fall within permitted development rights. Mansard conversions will always require planning permission as they involve significant structural changes. Some dormer types and hip to gable may also require approval from the local council. You can rely on our experts to make arrangements and deal with the local council on your behalf if your loft conversion in Southampton requires planning permission. They will prepare and submit all the technical drawings to the relevant department for approval, thus freeing you of any hassle that you may otherwise have faced.

Loft Conversions and Building Regulations

Regardless of your loft conversion ideas in Southampton, you will need approval from the building control department. The entire conversion must comply with building regulations at all times. These regulations pertain to ventilation, drainage, sewerage, electrical safety, fire safety, insulation, and nearly all other aspects of construction. Our loft conversion company in Southampton is highly experienced, having dealt with the building control department for many projects. Our team will ensure that all rules and regulations are complied with, your construction goes as planned, and you receive your completion certificate.

Rooflight Conversions - When Budget is Your Primary Concern

  • Rooflight loft conversion in Southampton is the simplest of all and involves the installation of rooflight/skylight windows, flooring, staircase, and utilities to make your loft a usable space.
  • They do not require planning permission and can be completed in the shortest time.
  • They are less costly than all other types of extensions.
  • They increase your home’s aesthetic value.

Hip-to-Gable Conversions – One of the Most Popular

  • These conversions involve transforming a hipped roof (sloping roof) to increase headroom, i.e. by creating a vertical gable wall. They make your otherwise wasted headroom available for use.
  • They are famous in the UK and Europe as they create ample space.
  • Modern loft conversions in Southampton often combine a rear dormer extension to create even more space.
  • You need a skilled architect to ensure your hip-to-gable conversion falls within your permitted development rights.

Dormer Conversion – The Most Adaptable

  • Several dormer conversions exist, such as L-shaped dormers, side dormers, rear dormers, and Velux.
  • They are very common as they can be built in several ways.
  • They do not require significant alterations, so you may not require planning permission.
  • They enhance not only your space but also your real estate value.

Mansard Conversion

  • Complete roof replacement with a horizontal roof and back walls that look almost vertical but are actually at an angle of 72 degrees.
  • Create the largest amount of additional space.
  • Higher loft conversions cost in Southampton than other conversions.
  • Require planning permission.
