Roof light/Velux loftTM conversions

Velux or roof light loft conversions are among the simplest and least expensive loft conversion options. Millions of homes across the UK have already had roof light loft conversions carried out, and it’s not hard to see why they’re so popular – the work involves relatively little disruption and doesn’t require any changes to the existing shape of the roof.

If your loft already offers generous amounts of headroom, then a roof light loft conversion could be the perfect option for you. Planning permission is not generally required for this work as it falls under the category of permitted development. This is because a roof light loft conversion does not require the loft to be extended beyond the line of the original roof.

In addition, roof lights can be fitted quickly and easily. The structure of the roof itself isn’t changed, and Velux windows are installed along the existing angle of the roof. This helps to ensure that they let in a generous amount of natural light, so that your converted loft space is airy and bright.

Roof light loft conversions are also a good option where there are tight restrictions on planning – such as homes located in conservation areas, for example. Our experts here at Econoloft will guide you through every step of the planning and regulatory process, so that everything is boxed off where it needs to be. We have many years of experience in making roof light loft conversions a reality.

If you’re looking to turn your loft space into a study or an additional bedroom, for example, a roof light loft conversion could be the perfect choice for you.
