Along with Victorian homes, one of the most common London loft conversions our expert team at Simply Loft carry out is on end of terrace and semi-detached properties. Not only can a loft conversion help to create much more space for you and your family, but it can also help to add a huge amount of value to your home.
If you live in a semi-detached, or end of terrace house in London, and are considering a loft conversion, there are several routes that you can take:
Roof Light, Skylight or Velux Loft Conversions
Roof light or skylight loft conversions are often the most cost-effective way to expand your semi-detached or end of terrace property, as well as offering the least amount of disruption. This type of conversion are a great choice if you have a large loft space with ample headroom throughout, and can help to add a lot more light to your home. They are also the cheapest type of loft conversion you can carry out.
Dormer Loft Conversions
Dormer loft conversions are another popular choice for semi-detached or period properties, as they create a large space that offers a choice of configurations and multiple rooms if needed.
Generally, dormers are usually only suitable for at the back of the property, but planning permission isn’t usually required unless you live in a Grade 1, Grade 2 listed or conservation area.
Hip To Gable Loft Conversions
A hip to gable loft conversion is often a popular choice for semi-detached or end of terrace properties that have a hipped roof. The work involves extending the side roof, which is hipped and turning it into a vertical wall, making it a gabled roof. Hip to gable loft extensions can sometimes be combined with a dormer loft conversion for maximum space all around.
