Roof Light Conversions East Kilbride

If you would like a style of conversion that does not need any alterations to the shape and angle of the roof, a "roof light loft conversion" may be your solution. All that is needed with this form of loft conversion is putting in skylights, building an access staircase, and installing a sturdy floor. Only lofts that currently have adequate roof space and don't need extending, are suitable for roof light conversions.

Mansard Conversions

The Mansard variety of creating loft conversions originated in about the 1600's due to a little known French architect by the name of Francois Mansart. It was developed to be a good space saving method that could yield a large level of further liveable space where previously there wasn't any. The Mansard type of attic conversion can only be applied to roof which are pitched and the space is produced by raising one of the walls (often to the rear of the property or home) and flattening out the roof, thereby creating virtually a vertical shape. The finished angle of the brought up wall has to be a minimum of 72 degrees. It's oftentimes the scenario that the wall needing to be lifted is a party wall (particularly in terraced houses), which means you will need your immediate neighbour's co-operation - an additional concern if you do not get along that well!
