Velux Conversions

Dormer loft conversions in Bristol can turn your unused loft space into additional living space which can be used for almost anything. A spare bedroom, a gamesroom or an office. A dormer loft conversion, sometimes also known as a kennel extension, extends outwards from the loft on either the front, back or side of the house, depending on what’s appropriate for your property and on what planning permission will allow. The majority of dormer lofts are built on the back of the house, to negate the need for planning permission.

Hip to Gable Conversion

A hip to gable loft conversion gives you a much larger living area in the existing loft space. We find a hip-end roof conversion provides enough extra space to accommodate a shower-room and introduce the best staircase positioning, as well as increasing standing space in the loft conversion.A hip end is the sloping end to a roof. A gable is the triangular section of wall which stands between two sloping roofs. A hip to gable loft extension extends the roof’s ridge line from the existing hips – where the existing upward ridges of the hip end meet the very top of the roof – to the furthest vertical wall.

These type of dormer loft conversions are often called a cottage dormer and is particularly suited to older properties and, unsurprisingly, cottages. Pitched dormers can be used to add character to a property. These are smaller dormers designed and constructed to be in-keeping with your property and the surrounding area.A pitched dormer can be used in place of a hip-to-gable conversion when planning permission is required.
