Mansard loft conversions

If you’re looking for a loft conversion that’ll add generous amounts of extra space to your home, a mansard loft conversion could well be the answer. These loft conversions extend the slope of a roof near vertically – typically in the range of between 72 and 90 degrees – and are usually built at the rear of a property. They tend to require more work than most loft conversions, but the potential rewards are impressive.

Mansard loft conversions take their name from the 17th-century French architect Francois Mansart, who first developed the forerunner of today’s mansard roof – a four-sided, double-sloped gambrel roof featuring gable windows on the steeper lower slope. They are an architectural staple across much of Europe and are popular among those looking to emulate that continental style here in Britain.

While mansard loft conversions generally require planning permission due to the amount of external work that goes with them, our experts here at Econoloft can help guide you through this process. They’ll provide you with the specialist advice you need to navigate the necessary regulatory hurdles, so that you can get on with the important business of making the loft conversion you’ve always dreamed of a reality.

Mansard lofts are suitable for many types of property, and can be customised in a number of different ways in order to blend in with the architectural style of the property. Your finished mansard loft conversion could be used for a huge range of potential purposes – whether as a study or office space, a playroom for the kids, or a games room. It could also accommodate an additional bathroom if necessary.
