Choosing the right windows for your loft conversion
So what are your options when it comes to loft conversion windows? Well, there are several, including:
- Roof lights- these are probably the most common type of loft window. These are installed on the sloping ceiling of the loft, and they can be top hung or middle hung depending on the available space inside the loft, as well as your preferences.
- Dormer windows- these involve cutting a space out of the original roof, and building a raised area above, with additional headroom. In terms of curb appeal, these type of windows are a great option. They are also particularly suited for properties that have low hanging ceilings in the attic.
- Gable end windows- these are windows installed in the triangular wall area of lofts with pitched roofs, and they can be incredibly attractive and stylish, adding a feature to your home.
