STYLES OF LOFT CONVERSIONS

‘A loft conversion may be used as a guest bedroom, study or playroom all of which will add both floorspace and value to your property. There are various types of loft conversions, each with different features and advantages which may be suitable for your property. At Brentwood Lofts we will work with you to review your requirements and the potential options, to help you to choose the right type of loft conversion for your home.’

Velux / Rooflight Conversion

Converting your existing loft space without changing the existing shape of your property, a Velux / Rooflight loft conversion uses rooflight windows installed into the pitch of the roof, to allow natural light to fill the new space. Velux roof windows are specifically designed for maximum natural light and ventilation. A rooflight conversion will effectively maintain your privacy working well for offices, bedrooms and bathrooms.

Dormer Loft Conversion

An extension to your roof giving more headroom and greater loft space. Dormers can be placed on the rear, front or side of the property. Rear flat roof dormers are the most popular type of loft conversion as they often do not require planning permission and can achieve the effect of a full room to the new dormer side of the room. Dormers can accommodate windows and French doors. Velux windows can be placed on the front of the roof creating natural light and ventilation to all rooms.

Hip to Gable Conversion

Extending your existing hip ended roof into a gable ended roof will provide more headroom and greater loft space. This usually applies to a semi-detached house or bungalow where the roof is currently hipped (sloped) to the side, as well as to the back and front. This roof is stripped and the hipped section removed. The end wall is then built up to form a new vertical gable and a standard pitched roof. The work creates a far greater area with full headroom. This type of loft conversion is often complimented by a rear flat roof box dormer.

Mansard Loft Conversion

This enables you to achieve maximum loft space. The conversion goes up to the apex of the roof space. Windows, French doors and velux windows can be inserted into the Mansard. This is where the roof structure is altered at the back of the house (and sometimes at the front too) to create a far larger area with full headroom. A mansard conversion typically spans from gable wall to gable wall and is like another full storey with almost vertical tiled walls and a flat roof. This results in an addition that may appear far more a part of the property and less like an add-on than a large box dormer.

ESTABLISHED FOR OVER 30 YEARS

We provide a full service, from our free initial survey/design site visit, when advice on all options will be given, followed by architectural designs, planning applications, negotiations with local authority planning departments, through to final building inspection and completion certificate.

They did an excellent job. We had a detailed quote and the price did not change. All workers were prompt and courteous and work was to a vey high standard. Additional work was discussed and explained and price agreed before any work was undertaken. Would definitely recommend


Stephen, Essex

We are delighted with the work that Brentwood Lofts carried out on our semi-detached house in Ingatestone, Essex, in 2016. They converted our low-height loft into a light-filled spacious loft bedroom, landing and bathroom, extended the lounge downstairs and converted the garage into an office and a utility room.

Mr & Mrs Fetherston

I used Brentwood Lofts for a loft conversion in May 2014. The work was completed to the agreed budget and I appreciated their ‘can do’ attitude. Pleasant people and very trustworthy. I’d give them a 6 for customer service if I could!


Happy Customer

An excellent company. The owner, Barry Ball, certainly knows his job and can help with all the legislation and planning issues. Barry will plan the whole project for you and the work is carried out by his staff and sub-contractors (who you will want to use again and again). My conversion was completed on time and the work is faultless.


Carl T

Brentwood Lofts are a small business but with much experience in their field. The proprietor, Barrie, is trustworthy, honest and open freely discussing all elements of the work & any issues. He inspires confidence.
