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.
