loft conversion cladding roof simply loft London

When people are having a loft conversion built, they’re usually so excited about what they’re going to do with all that new space inside (and who wouldn’t be excited about that brand new bedroom with en suite, cool home office or playroom for the kids) that they don’t give much thought to what it will look like from the outside.

However, there are a variety of different loft conversion cladding options available to you that will make your loft look as great from the outside as it will inside.


Tiles are typically used for the sides of dormer loft conversions and usually match the existing roof tiles. So, if your roof tiles are red then the tile cladding of your dormer loft conversion will also be red. There are a few different choices for materials as well. Clay and imitation slate are both popular choices and, of course, real slate is a stunning option if your budget is a little more relaxed.

If your loft conversion has block walls rather than timber framed walls then rendering is an option. This gives a really crisp, contemporary finish and looks very smart.


The roof of a loft conversion is usually covered in felt and bitumen. However, if you want something that’s much longer lasting and durable, the roof can be cladded in GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) which is very hardwearing and comes with a 20 year guarantee.
