Dormer Loft Conversions

Dormer loft conversions are a excellent choice for lofts with limited height.  It will physically extend the existing roof, adding both floor space and height. Internally, dormer conversions provide a more conventional room shape, with a horizontal ceiling and vertical walls, rather than the sloping wall and ceilings often associated with a Velux conversion.

There are various styles of dormer windows, all offering a different external appearance:

Flat Roof Dormer


These type of loft conversions add the most internal space, but alter the roof line, which means they are not always as aesthetically pleasing as other loft conversion styles.

Hipped Roof Dormer  


These type of loft conversions feature dormer windows with their own ‘hipped’ roof.

Gable Fronted Dormer  

These type of loft conversions are those with windows that look like miniature gables.

French Doors Dormer  

Incorporating French doors with a metal balustrade is a great light-enhancing feature for new rooms in former roof spaces and many people are choosing this option, space permitting.

Pitched Dormer  


These type of loft conversions which have this type of dormer window is often called cottage style and is particularly suited to older houses and cottages – they are very aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
