What are the different types of dormer loft conversion?

Dormer loft conversions are some of the most popular loft conversion options. But what are the different choices for these? Well, here at Pinnacle Loft Conversions, we are Preston’s leading loft conversion specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about the different types of dormer loft conversion.

So, what are the different types of dormer loft conversion?

There are several different types of dormer loft conversion that you could consider installing. These options include:

  • A single dormer- this is the standard dormer loft conversion that you might be thinking of when you think of a loft conversion. This type of loft conversion creates a single dormer window, and extends the roof in the one area. For some properties, you can use two single dormer loft conversions to add two separate spaces.
  • A full width dormer- this type of dormer loft conversion involves creating a large dormer space that is the full width of the house, raising the height of the roof all the way along. This creates a large loft conversion space that can be very useful for a range of purposes.
  • An L shaped dormer- if your property has an extension on the rear, at the same height as the original roof, an L shaped dormer can be created using the space above this conversion, joined to the space in your attic, for a stylish and unusual addition to your home that will also add practical, usable space.
  • A side dormer- this is installed in properties with a hip roof, that have access to the loft through the hip. This is because a dormer conversion increases the head height enough to create a usable practical space here.
