Mansard Loft Conversions

The Mansard kind of doing a loft conversion was developed during the 1600's thanks to a famous architect by the name of Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). It was intended as a bit of a way of creating extra space that could provide an appreciable amount of extra living space where previously there was none. The Mansard loft conversion can only be utilized on roof which are pitched and space is fashioned by building up one wall (ordinarily at the back of a property) coupled with leveling out the roof, thus creating an essentially vertical contour. The final angle of the wall that is raised should be at least 72 degrees. It's often the situation that the wall which requires building up is shared with a neighbour (especially with terraced houses), which means that you'll need your neighbour's co-operation - yet another worry if you are not on friendly terms!

Roof Light Conversions Ely

With "roof light conversions" there isn't any need to change the shape and pitch of the roof, which makes it far and away the most economical and least disruptive sort of conversion. All that is involved with this form of loft conversion is putting in windows, installing a sturdy floor, and fitting an access staircase. This style of conversion only works if you've already got sufficient roof space. (Tags: Roof Light Loft Conversions Ely, Roof Light Conversions Ely)

Hip to Gable Loft Conversions Ely

There are a lot of houses in Ely that have got hipped roofs with ends that slope as well as the sides, and these are mostly detached and semi-detached homes. This kind of roof layout limits the quantity of room that is available for a loft conversion, however by building a hip to gable loft conversion, additional space can be created. More extra space is generated by essentially changing a hip end into a gable end, as the slope is transformed into a vertical. If you've got a detached property it's quite possible that you will actually have 2 hipped ends, and you can do a double hip to gable loft conversion, which should create even more extra space. You'll still need to check with your local authority, but normally hip to gable loft conversions come in the "permitted developments" grouping and do not need planning permission. It's not only semi-detached and detached properties in Ely that are candidates for hip-to-gable loft conversions, since certain end of terrace homes with hipped roofs could also qualify. As a consequence of the extra structural work that is required, hip-to-gable conversions are usually more expensive than other styles of loft conversion (twenty percent extra in some cases). An alternative solution is a side dormer conversion, which is more cost-effective but does not generate as much space.
