What Style is Right for Me?
The best type of conversion for you will depend on various factors including your property type and the space you want to create. To give you the right solution, Econoloft undertakes a personal home visit and consultation to discuss your needs and measure your loft. We then advise on what is structurally possible and how to make the most of available space.
Formed in 1986, Econoloft has experience constructing all styles of attic conversions for new and older houses, bungalows, flats and maisonettes across the UK. No matter what type we are working on, or your reasons for building a conversion, we provide a full in-house service that includes planning, design and construction management. We ensure your loft conversion suits your current needs and is flexible enough to change with you as your lifestyle or family changes.
Dormer conversions are our most popular type and are suitable for many house types across the UK. They involve a simple loft extension which results in a flat roof extending out from your sloped roof. This creates much more floorspace and headroom which is perfect for all kinds of uses.
If your loft already has enough headroom, a Velux conversion, also called a rooflight conversion, could be ideal. For a Velux conversion, we install rooflights into your existing roof and because Econoloft is a Velux approved installer, you know you are getting the highest standard of service.
This style does not require changes to the roof structure, resulting in minimal disruption and making rooflight loft conversions one of the simplest and most cost-effective options. Furthermore, this means they often fall under permitted development and are a good option for homes with tight planning restrictions, whether in Orpington, Sevenoaks, St Albans, Sutton, Wandsworth or anywhere else in the UK.
Mansard attic conversions extend the slope of the roof near vertically, adding large amounts of space. While they tend to require planning permission, the internal space you gain makes the extra work worth it and Econoloft will guide you through the planning process, making it as easy and stress free as possible.
We customise mansard conversions to blend in with the architectural style of your home, making them perfect for all kinds of properties. They are especially popular in urban areas or sometimes conservation areas.
Hip-to-gable loft extensions are a favourite for semi-detached homes, and they replace the sloping side of hipped roofs with a vertical wall. This provides valuable extra space which ensures you can use your conversion the way you want. In addition, if you have a detached property with two sloping sides, we can even construct a double hip-to-gable conversion.
