A loft conversion is a much more cost-effective option than moving home, particularly in the current property climate and an extra bedroom and ensuite remain the most popular loft conversion especially in areas of the country where prices are at a premium.  What’s more, making your three bedroom home a four bedroom home, can add anything up to 15 or 20 percent to its value depending on where you live..

You should find answers to most of your questions in our FAQ’s section, or if you prefer, call our freephone number  0800 269765 and arrange a free, no obligation home visit and see how you can improve your property with a bespoke loft conversion from Econoloft.

Dormer 
 
  
 
This option is often used where the existing loft space is of insufficient size for the proposed conversion; it creates additional headroom for both the staircase and the proposed new living space. If an additional bathroom is also included in the plans the increased height created by the Dormer provides additional height above the fittings.


Rooflight/Velux™
 
  

 
This option is usually suitable for those contemplating the smaller loft conversion. Typically for a single bedroom or study where adequate height is available within the existing loft space and then rooflights can then be installed with a minimum of disruption.
 
 
This type of conversion is generally designed within the inner London areas, where clients are following the Mansard trend of similar conversions within their locality. This type of conversion was the preferred design a number of years ago, and would most likely be the preferred option from a planning perspective in sensitive areas.


Hip to Gable (Dormer)

  

This option is one of the most popular in order to gain maximum space from the loft especially on semi detached properties. The roof is extended to the outside wall where we build up the "Gable" wall. A rear Dormer is usually added where possible, see above. A new bathroom and a bedroom or two is the most common as so much more floor space is gained with a Gable Up.
