Loft conversion is one of the most significant ways to add value to your precious home. It offers an impressive return on investment compared to other home renovations. London is a city of unrelenting activities, where space is very premium. So, a loft conversion is the best way to expand the living space for homeowners.
At Construct & Furnish, we have the experience and skills to ensure that loft conversion is done at the finest level. We have team of specialists who will collaborate with you and turn your creepy attic into a dreamy place.
To determine which type of transformation will be best for your home, think about the form and structure of your current roof, cost, and rights of permitted development. The following are the types of loft conversions:
It is most commonly established on semi-detached property with a hipped roof. At the rear of the property, the hip is expanded vertically from the ridgeline to form a gable, and a dormer is built at the rear. This is the best pick to maximise the floor’s space.
This is the most favoured type of loft conversion in Wandsworth, a simple flat roof dormer. It’s a structural extension designed vertically from the current roof’s slope, giving a square box form. To install conventional windows, no major changes are required in this loft conversion.
It is established by raising the shared wall with your neighbours. The outer wall slopes gently inwards, and the roof remains flat. Mansards are commonly found at the house’s rear, and while they are fit for many property types, they are mostly built in terrace houses.
It is 25% cheaper than other types of conversion and is done where you don’t change or expand the current space but install windows and reinforce the floor to turn a dull attic into a comfortable functional area.
It offers the potential to create a tremendous amount of additional space. L-shaped loft conversion provides the option to have more space for multiple rooms. It is commonly found in Victorian and Edwardian-era properties.
It is built within the existing roof slope with the addition of roof lights externally. This type of transformation can be found on detached properties with considerable head heights, like bungalows.
They are aesthetically very pleasing and available in sizeable existing roof space. A pitched dormer can provide an additional room within certain loft parts to accommodate features like new loft stairs.
Also referred to as pre-fab loft conversions, they come ready-made after being constructed off-site. First, we remove the house’s roof before installing the modular loft conversion. This is the most quick and easy way to convert your loft.

For more living space in a property, loft conversion is generally more accessible, cheaper, and far more reasonable for most homeowners.
