Pitch roof dormer conversions

These are the most aesthetically appealing loft conversions from the exterior of your property. Usually two of three dormers would be situated in the roof of your property.  This conversion offers more internal space than a Velux conversion yet less than a dormer.

Gable up dormer conversions

This type of conversion dramatically alters your roofs appearance usually applies to a semi-detached or end terrace property.  The hip end of your roof is altered to create a larger roof space, enabling a dormer to be constructed on the rear of the property.  This conversion offers the possibility of creating a master bedroom en-suite out of your unused roof space.
