Convert A Loft


If you are considering a Velux conversion, you might be wondering what it is and how it differs from other types of loft conversions. A Velux conversion is a type of loft conversion where the roofline is unaltered. Velux windows are used and allow natural sunlight to shine through the new space. We will only use official Velux windows as it is the leading manufacturer and will provide its own guarantee on the product.A Velux conversion provides an excellent opportunity to create a spacious area for entertaining or relaxing in, without having to alter your home’s exterior. The addition can also be designed to match your existing building style, so there won’t be any need for any additional work on that front either!

A Velux conversion is the most non-intrusive, cost-effective and easiest way to create additional space. Velux conversions work at their best when there is a good amount of height between the loft floor and the existing ridge. In comparison to other conversion types, Velux loft conversions require much less building work and are, therefore, not as disruptive. As a result, they can usually be carried out without disturbing your home or business.

As well as being cost-efficient and easy to install, Velux loft conversions also have many other benefits. They can increase your living space by up to 30%, which means you could make more use of the space at home or in your business. If you have an existing loft hatch but don’t want it anymore then you can remove it. Or if there isn’t one at all then you can install one instead!

If you’re looking for a cost-effective way to convert your loft space into something useful then look no further than a Velux loft conversion!

As the external roof line is unaltered, there are no finishes to consider. The only visual change to the roof would be the fact the roof now has Velux windows. These can be tiled or slated in using your existing tiles or slates so that the Velux windows look like they have always been there.The only other finishing work that may be required is if you are planning on installing a new gutter system.

If a planning application is validated by the council, it should issue a decision within eight weeks after validation.
