Important external design choices for loft conversions
So, what external choices can you make regarding your new loft conversion? Well, there are several things you can consider, including:

You could choose contemporary aluminium frames, or more traditional grid pattern glass and shutters to suit a traditional country home. Ether way, be sure that your design choice suits your existing property.
- Cladding or tiling- for many loft extension conversions, the main choice is hanging tiles. But this can be replace by a range of different types of cladding, into timber effect and metal cladding. This can really create a stunning visual effect for any property. Lead, copper and zinc are all effective traditional choices, with aluminium and steel providing a more contemporary finish.
