Dormer Loft Conversion

Flat roof dormer loft conversions are the best way to expand on the space you have by bringing out the roofline from the centre ridge tiles to the edge of your outside wall, essentially free space. Whilst still using a timber frame to build the dormer structure the roofing technology has moved forward tenfold since the 1980’s & 1990’s when a boom in dormer conversions happened but everyone used felt. Here at S&O Conversions we mainly use GRP or Glass Resin /Fibre Glass to mate the dormer roof watertight, but we can also work with rubber / EDPM.

We work with local councils and experts in planning to avoid full planning permission where possible, as there’s always potential that a flat roof dormer loft conversion can be done under permitted development.

Here at S&O we love doing dormer conversions and are always checking the weather and try to plan weeks in advance. Where possible we have our full team on these jobs so that we can start early to get the roof off and the majority of the work done within a few days so that the build is water tight.

Here at S&O Conversions we love the simplicity that can be offered by a Velux loft conversion and have completed many simple versions and twists on the classic Velux conversion. In layman’s terms the loft conversion where the roofline remains unaltered apart from having “Velux” windows installed. Your unlikely to need planning permission to have Velux windows installed into your roofline as long as you follow the guidelines set out by your local council. This is something that we will deal with so there is no need to worry about confusing jargon.

Typically a Velux loft conversion will take around 4 weeks but may take a little longer if more complex design work is involved.

Hip to Gable & Hip End Loft Conversion

These sound very complex as they are terms that you don’t really hear of that often. If you have a hipped roof, it means that one (short side) of your roof slopes inwards towards the middle of your house, commonly found on the end of terraces or a pair of semi detaches houses. Clearly having this sloping roof severely impacts the useable room that you have in your loft. So what’s recommended to do is where planning approved the hip can be removed and we expand the roofline out to the edge on the outside wall, making a verticle wall from the ground up to the ridge tiles/ roofline. Generally, the new roof and wall end will be constructed out of construction grade timber and usually clad in roof tiles. You could then opt to go with a full sided dormer loft conversion should you wish.

Another option would be Hip End loft conversion where the hipped end remains in place and we construct a smaller dormer into this end of your loft, whilst you won’t fully maximise space it is one of the best compromises that can be made.
