Mansard loft conversions have become extremely popular in recent times thanks to newer building techniques & their ability to create great spaces in the home. It involves adding an extra storey to your property to create a lot of extra space in your home and can be used for a variety of room types but can take a lot of work.

What Does a Mansard Loft Conversion Look Like?

Mansard Loft conversions are an additional storey on the top of your home. It features two slopes on all four sides of the house, with one slope steeper than the other. One side of the roof is removed, and the party wall is built on to create an almost vertical slope and add more space to your property. Mansard loft conversions offer a great space without the fear of cramped ceiling heights.

Which Homes are Mansard Conversions Best Suited For?

These loft conversions can be added to the majority of house types, from Victorian townhouses to a modern semi-detached property. They can be added to detached, semi-detached, terraced properties, and bungalows. They are often the first choice for homeowners who live in heavily populated areas where the space to the back and sides of the property is often limited. They are also a popular choice for homeowners who want to avoid adding a ground floor extension to preserve as much garden space as possible.

How Does a Mansard Create More Space in Your Home?

Building a Mansard loft conversion will open up your roof, allowing you to make the most of your loft area. It has a flat roof and a sloping back wall, and large windows can be added. They are a loft conversion type that adds a lot of room to your property that you can move around in easily. Since councils view the 72-degree sloping backwards surface of a Mansard roof as a roof rather than a wall, it allows you to incorporate as much of your home’s space as possible into the extension.
