Loft Conversion Derby
We take all the building hassles away with our professionalism and experience.
Roofing contractors like us are typically involved in loft conversion projects because it is more cost effective than extending outwards, and such extensions usually require some roof work. Roof loft conversion means that some form of construction is taking place within the spaces above your ceiling or floors making new areas accessible by opening up holes through which materials can be passed easily without damaging any other rooms below – This means that new windows may have been fitted, plumbing may have been installed to make new bathrooms, loft lights may be added and loft insulation is put in place.
Professional Loft Conversions
Loft conversions involve building rooms and structures in the roof space of a building.
In performing loft conversions, the following need to be considered:
- Stair access to the loft, which can be added by extending an existing stairwell or building a new one. Alternatively there are companies that could do this for you;
- Mechanical ventilation; and/or
- Insulation if required.

More on Loft Conversion: Important Questions
How much is a loft conversion roof?
The cost of a conversion roof in the United Kingdom will vary depending on the size, loft conversion company and what you need. A loft conversion can be very affordable depending on the type of loft you need and what your budget is set at.
Do roofers do loft conversions?
Roofers are involved in loft conversion projects. This is because loft conversions often require loft roofing to be installed. Loft roofing is different from standard roofing. Roofers will need to know about loft conversions and loft roofing so they can provide you with a suitable quote for your project needs.
What type of roof do you need for a loft conversion?
Loft conversions require specialised types of roofs since the height is much taller than other attic rooms in a house. This means that loft conversions often include either mansard loft conversion, dormer loft conversion or hip-to-gable conversions as well as conventional flat roofs or pitched roofs depending on the height of the room being converted into an additional living space.
How tall does a roof have to be for a loft conversion?
For most practical purposes any building should not exceed two floors without requiring planning permission which would apply to loft conversions as well. The roof should not be higher than the highest part of the house, i.e. if a chimney is sticking out it should remain below this point in height otherwise permission will have to be sought from your local authority for extension etc.
It’s also worth bearing in mind that there are limits on how much you may increase the area of a building without Planning Permission and these limits can vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
What is a mansard loft conversion?
A Mansard loft conversion refers to converting attic space into habitable rooms by removing part of its sloping portion at each end making them go horizontal instead while retaining dormers with roof windows and roof lights. This is a very popular loft conversion type as it allows for four large rooms to be created with all the loft space combined together.
What is a dormer loft conversion?
A dormer loft conversion is when loft conversion is carried out on an end of the building with a steep roof to create additional space. Usually dormer loft conversions are done by converting the loft area in front part of the house but behind the main ridge line creating two or more rooms, storage spaces and/or bathrooms using traditional loft conversion techniques.
Can I install solar panels with my loft room?
Yes, many companies will include eco friendly renewable energy systems so you may want to ask them about this. As roofers, with regard to installing solar panels on loft conversion roof, we are concerned about the loft conversion roof, more than the actual solar panels.
Loft Conversions for Kitchens and Rooms
Kitchen and bathrooms may require loft conversion if space is a problem. When applied to a kitchen or bathroom, loft conversion will provide an additional 30 square meters of floor space. Loft conversions are a good source for extra room and loft conversion can be used to create bedrooms, studies or even a second kitchen/bathroom. Your bathroom will also benefit from loft conversion as it will increase the amount of storage available in your loft.
Loft Conversion refurbishment
Loft conversion refurbishment will typically be required after some years of loft conversions. This is a good opportunity to re-evaluate the loft conversion and correct any problems once they have been identified as clear from loft conversion refurbishment experience.
