Dormer Roof Extensions



It’s not uncommon to find a dormer loft conversion appearing among any city skyline; these are, after all, one of the most common and popular forms of loft conversion available. The distinctive design of a dormer loft conversion sees a structural addition projecting from the sloping roof of a building, freeing up a significant amount of space within the attic which you can use as a bedroom, office, bathroom, etc.

What is a dormer loft conversion?

A dormer loft conversion is available in many forms, with the most common being a simple flat roof design. Not only is this one of the more cost-effective options, but it is also the option that makes the most room available on the inside. Alternatively, you have the option of installing a shed dormer (featuring a roof that slopes at a lesser angle than the main roof); a gable fronted dormer (also known as a dog-house dormer); or a hipped roof dormer.
