Which Loft Conversion Type is Right for my Home?
You must take several factors into consideration when considering a loft conversion, which include adequate insulation, the space available to you and obtaining planning permission as well as the intended use of the created space. We undertake three main varieties of loft conversions in Altrincham:
A Dormer conversion is essentially based on a window integrated extension – the main purpose being the incorporation of greater head room. Improved stair access is also a benefit of opting for a Dormer conversions. Planning permission is required for a Dormer conversion, which accounts for its slightly less popular status when compared with a standard Window conversion. However, many Dormer Conversions are granted planning permission on first application.
This is the most common type of loft conversion completed by MDA Design and Build. The relatively simple nature of the work undertaken, in addition to the efficient creation of additional space accounts for its enduring popularity. Roof windows (most commonly Velux windows) are inserted into the roof space to provide light into the space, so that space which would otherwise be wasted can become a perfectly usable and dynamic area. Building regulation approval is required for all loft conversions in Altrincham, however, Window conversions completed by MDA Design and Build can be completed in adherence to planning regulations as the project unfolds, so that planning regulations so that planning permission is not required. They can have a modernising effect which will also add sale value to a property.
The Mansard Style roof has a very distinctive style, but one which adds a great deal of potential variety for loft conversions in Altrincham. With this type of conversion, homeowners may add an additional level onto a house without any stone work on the building’s exterior. However, this is not their only use and many Mansard style Altrincham loft conversions are used to conceal central heating systems and boilers, whilst they can be made more aesthetically pleasing by using a dormer style window. Planning permission is also required for these conversions. Mansard conversions are usually used for bigger, more archaic houses which naturally have flat roofs.
