Whatever your loft conversion requirements, LLE can offer you an end to end service from design, planning permission to finished construction. We offer all types of loft conversions including Velux, Dormer, Hip to Gable and Mansard all designed to your specification.
Adding a loft conversion with an extra bedroom and an on-suite bathroom can add up to 15-25% to the value of your home.
If you are looking for the most cost effective conversion, a velux loft conversion is the cheapest option and doesn’t need a lot of building work. With a conversion of the existing loft space you will require just a few alterations to the roof. You will need to have the ﬂoor strengthened and suitable insulation added, with new windows set into the existing roof slope.
If you have more of a budget, and need more space, there are several types of dormer loft conversions which might suit you. Addding dormer windows will increase the roof space at full head height. Dormer windows are more usually added to the rear of the house but, if you get planning permission, you can add them to the front or side of your home.
A full-width dormer adds a dormer across the whole of one side of your roof, and an L-shape dormer is suitable for Victorian houses with a rear extension, with one dormer added on the main part of the house and another on the rear extension.
Attributed to the 17th-century French architect Francois Mansart, the term discribes a roof with a combination of a very steep lower slope and a very shallow or flat upper part
This type of conversion requires extensive building work with a full removal and build conversion. With that sort of work involved, you’ll obviously have to pay more but, given that no other type of loft conversion will give you as much added space, if you can afford it, it will be worth it.
As with loft conversions LLE can offer you an end to end service for your extension from design, planning permission to finished construction. We can offer all types of house extensions from a simple single storey side extension to a double storey rear extension.
A side extension is the most common and cost effective house extension mostly used on terraced houses utilising the walk through area of the garden. It’s a great way to extend a kitchen space or to make a stunning dining room and also of letting light through with either a solid slopped roof with Velux windows or a glazed roof.
L-Shaped / Wrap Around
A side extension can be combined with a rear extensions to create a wrap-around / L- shaped extension. Wrap-around extensions offer you the maximum amount of flexibility to change the layout of your house and create maximum living space.
If you have the space, a rear extension can have a huge impact on the very nature of your house. This type of house extension allows you to open your kitchen up to your back garden, creating a stunning open plan area that can be utilised as a combined kitchen, dining and living area. Adding large patio doors really helps to open up and combine the interior living space with your garden.
