All about L Shaped Conversions London

In terms of different kinds of loft conversions on London homes, an L Shaped Loft Conversion is one of the best. With this kind of loft conversion, you can design and create the largest internal space, with additional headroom for that extra airy and light feeling in the room.

An L shaped loft conversion involves an L shaped dormer window, where the roof windows extend vertically from the slope of a roof, and the two dormers are intertwined in corners.

Unlike some small loft conversions, this is one where one end of the dormer, in most cases the larger end, is connected into the roof while the other end of the dormer is built into the roof of an existing rear extension.

When you do this kind of loft conversion on a London home, you can often create a head space that is similar to the design of the first floor. On Victorian or Edwardian properties, an L shaped Loft conversion can bring about just a single room whereas an L shaped loft conversion can result in an additional second room.

Types of Property Suited for
the L Shaped Loft Conversion

As our loft conversions team in London know through experience, this type of loft conversion relies on a rear extension which means the L shaped conversions are only suited to certain types of properties in London. Victorian and Edwardian terrace and end of terrace properties offer a good option for such a loft conversion, as most of these houses have an addition to the rear of the house that creates the much wanted L shaped roof.

Questions to ask yourself before doing this!

When it comes to getting started with your loft conversion in london, our experts will advise you about whether your loft is suitable, choosing the type of loft conversion that could work for your london home, and finding a builder or architect.

Can my Loft be Converted?

When considering a loft conversion in london, you need to work out whether your loft space is actually suitable for a conversion. Most houses will come with an allowance for permitted development, which means that you can go ahead with your loft conversion at your london home without planning permission. However, if you live in a conservation area, or if, for example, your roof space isn’t tall enough, it may be more complicated.

Which type of loft conversion should I go for?

There are four main types of loft conversion options for london customers:: roof light, dormer loft conversions, hip-to-gable and mansard. Your loft conversion in london will be dependent on multiple factors, house style, house age, and budget.  Roof light loft conversions in london homes are the cheapest and least disruptive option. Dormer loft conversion in london properties are extensions that protrude from the slope of the roof, whereby Mansard loft extensions run along the whole length of your house’s roof and will alter the angle of the roof slope, making it almost vertical. These tend to be the most expensive type of conversion, but will result in a significant amount of extra space.

How do I choose a Builder or Architect?

As with many building jobs, when getting a loft conversion in london, word of mouth recommendations for builders and architects can be highly valuable. Look at dormer loft conversions in your london neighbourhood, and other loft extension work in your london street to give you an idea of what you want.
