Dormer Loft Conversions

Dormer window loft conversions not only look good and add character to your home, they also give the feel of a completely new room rather than a converted space.

Dormer windows allow more light into your loft room, provide more space and extra headroom and have a more practical use: creating room for proper access and entrances to the loft.

Dormer conversions are especially suited to the traditional rafter and purlin roof construction generally found on houses built before 1960.

Types of Dormer

Gable Dormer

A gable fronted dormer, sometimes called a doghouse dormer, features a centre pointed frontage.

Hipped roof dormer

The attractive cottage style dormer has a sloping front roof.

Flat roof dormer

A flat roof dormer, although less aesthetically pleasing, lets more light into the loft conversion than the gable and hipped style dormers.

Shed dormer

Shed dormers feature a roof that slopes at a shallower angle than the main roof. These provide more light and space than gable dormers.
