When it comes to converting your loft in a semi-detached house, there are endless options available to you. Whatever your ideas are for your semi-detached loft conversion, Alvaston loft conversions are here to help.
Can I Convert a Loft in a Semi-Detached House?
The good answer is yes. In most cases, you will be able to convert the loft of your semi-detached house. However, as with all house types, there are some exceptions. If your home is a listed property, for example, there may be some restrictions on the type of alterations you can make in your home. Planning permission is not usually required for standard loft conversions in semi-detached homes however it may be required in some cases.
What Options Are There for Semi-Detached Loft Conversion?
When it comes to loft conversions for semi-detached houses, almost every type of loft conversion is available to you. Whether you are looking for a dormer loft conversion for extra height or a simple roof light conversion for your semi-detached property, there is an option to suit every style.
Velux Loft Conversions/Roof Light Loft Conversions
For those looking for a simple loft conversion that opens up your loft space with light, a roof light loft conversion could be the perfect option. As one of the most cost-effective ways to add more space to your home, a Velux loft conversion will transform your unused attic space into a light-filled room perfect for an extra bathroom with ensuite or even a home office space or playroom. Roof light loft conversions are ideal for homes that already have enough headroom for a room and offer more light without changing the outside appearance of your house. The opening windows can also be added wherever you choose. This means they could be ideal for ventilation for loft bathrooms, for example. Roof light conversions often fall within permitted development so can be easier to fund with a shorter process.
Hip to Gable Loft Conversions
Many semi-detached properties, particularly 1930’s style semi-detached houses often have at least one side of the roof that slopes. A hip-to-gable loft conversion can help change the shape of that slanted section to create more head space in your new loft room making it a popular option with those looking to build an additional room in their loft extension. This is called a hip-to-gable loft conversion.
Dormer Loft Conversions for Semi-Detached Houses
Another option that is ideal for semi-detached houses is a dormer loft conversion. These add an additional section onto the roof of your home with a window that allows you to create more head space for your new room. Dormer loft conversions jut out from the side of your roof to create extra floor space in your loft room.This is a good option for semi’s that don’t have very much standing headroom and can help make the loft conversion more practical for use.
Mansard Loft Conversions for Semi-Detached Properties
Similar to a dormer loft conversion, Mansard loft conversions help to create extra space in your loft. Mansard loft conversions are built with a flat roof and a back wall that slopes 72 degrees inwards to increase the head space available in your new loft room. As they require large changes to be made to your roof structure, Mansard loft conversions often require planning permission due to the scale of the changes to your loft and roof space.
