Different types of Dormer Loft Conversions In Dulwich
When it comes to dormer loft conversions there are 4 different types of loft conversions that you can consider when determining which to choose from for your loft conversion. Here are the four most common:
Flat Roof Dormer Loft Conversion
Flat-roof dormers are pretty self-explanatory they are dormers that sit horizontally with a flat roof. They are simple structures that can be added to either the front or rear of your loft. Again a viable option is to expand the usable space in a loft and provides a lot of natural light due to the increased head height of a flat roof dormer and the use of dormer windows.
Shed dormers are similar to flat roof dormers however the roof slopes down at a slight angle. Usually suited to homes with a gable roof, shed dormers may be constructed with different materials than a flat roof dormer.
Gable Fronted Dormer Loft Conversion (Dog-House Dormer)
Also known as the dog-house dormer the gable-fronted dormer loft conversion is a more complex procedure of loft conversion. It consists of a gable wall extension which to meet the current ridge line is built upwards. This will also contain and new sloping roof towards the gable end of your loft conversion.
L-shaped dormers contain two parts which form an L shape and consist of two loft conversion builds joined together to form an ‘l-shape’. L-shaped dormers are usually only suited towards Victorian properties with a back addition towards the kitchen. L-shaped dormers are the best way to extend these types of properties and provide plenty of space to work with.
