The dormer loft is a very common type of loft conversion and is basically an extension from the existing roof. In this type of conversion, the structure is changed by the addition of a flat roof that extends out from the plane of the existing sloping roof. They can even run the entire length of the roof creating a really generous amount of living space.
Dormer loft conversions are very popular for two reasons:
- they are relatively inexpensive, and
- they provide a generous amount of additional space by way of additional headroom.
Flat-roofed dormers will help to substantially increase the floor space in your loft conversion, and also offer the benefits of additional headroom, flat ceilings and straight walls. Most dormer conversions have straight, flat roofs, but it is possible to have a hipped-roof or a gable-fronted dormer loft.
