Mansard Loft Conversions Chester

The Mansard style of doing loft conversions was first seen in around the 17th C by a well known architect named Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). He thought it would be an incredible way of creating space which could provide a considerable degree of extra living space where previously there was none. The Mansard attic conversion is only used on roof which are pitched and the space is generated by raising one wall (more often than not to the rear of the property) and also flattening out that part of the roof, thus creating virtually a vertical shape. The created angle of the wall that is raised has to be on at least a 72 degree incline. It's frequently the case that the wall needing to be elevated is a party wall with a neighbour (particularly with houses that are terraced), which means you will need your neighbour's co-operation - an additional worry if you're not on friendly terms!

Dormer Windows Chester

Dormer windows are a great way to add more space and light to a loft, and similar to there being various types of loft conversions in Chester, you can also find several types of dormer windows on the market. The most popular varieties of dormer styles are: gable dormers, eyebrow dormers, flat roof dormers, hipped dormers and shed dormers. The simplest of those to construct and maybe the most popular and widely used in Chester is the flat roof dormer window. This type furthermore generates more additional space than all of the other types, making it functional as well as cheap, although it might be thought to be less attractive than some of the other alternatives. Shed dormer windows resemble flat roofed dormers, featuring a roof (on a single plane) sloping at an angle less than that of the house roof. Eyebrow dormers are really eye-catching in the right location and comprise a curved roof on top of a low, wide window, they have no straight surfaces. Gable dormers are considered more attractive with basic pitched roofs more suited to period properties, gable dormers may also be known as dog-house dormer or gable fronted dormers. Hipped dormer windows are rather attractive, have 3 sloping surfaces much the same as the original roof, these are sometimes called hip roof dormers.
