Roof Light Conversions Oadby

If you'd prefer not to change the angle and shape of your roof, the answer could be a "roof light conversion". This type of conversion involves just installing an appropriate floor, fitting an access staircase, and putting in skylight windows. Such loft conversions are an option only if your loft already has sufficient roof space.

Mansard Loft Conversions

The Mansard variety of creating loft conversions was first used sometime in the 1600's thanks to a little known French architect called Mansart (not Mansard). It became a great space creating solution that would provide a significant measure of further living space where previously there wasn't any. This form of conversion can only be utilized on pitched roofs and the space is generated by bringing up one wall (more often than not at the back of a property) coupled with leveling out that section of the roof, thus creating an almost vertical shape. The finished angle of the wall that is built up have got to be on at least a 72 degree incline. It will often be the scenario that you will be hoping to bring up a wall that is also your neighbour's (especially in terraced houses), so this means that you will need your neighbour's cooperation - an extra concern if you don't get on that well!
