Convert Space and Add an Extra Dimension to Your Property

A Mansard loft conversion is a great way to convert loft space, however you may or may not be aware that this type of conversion will need a lot of construction work before it's completed and fit for use. The end result will be a lot of extra space which you'll probably consider is more than worth your while, but you need to prepare yourself for the chaos.

Loft Conversion Planning Permission

Because you have to change the roof structure, a Mansard loft conversion will need planning permission, so that's one thing you need to sort out before going ahead. If you're unsure, speak to a builder or an architect beforehand. It will have a flat roof with a 72 degree slope, the 72 degrees are exact because that's what councils deem a roof rather than a wall. You will have small dormer windows built in to the conversion with parapet walls either side with brickwork, so it matches the rest of your property nicely.

Value For Money

A loft conversion is an investment that gets you a lot more space that you can do a lot more with and you'll certainly get your money's worth. Make sure you hire reputable builders, because you want this loft conversion to work for you, it'll not only give you space, it can also add value to your property should you decide to sell in the future.

To summarise, what are the advantages of having a Mansard loft conversion?

  • You'll get a lot more space than you had before
