What is a Dormer Loft Conversion?


A roof dormer projects outwards from the original roofline and looks like a box or wedge like structure as the walls are at a 90 degree angle to the floor. A dormer loft conversion involves adding two different dormers to the loft, one above the main section of the house and one above the rear extension.

What stairs do I put in a loft conversion?

Before you add stairs to your loft, it’s a good idea to consider what design you want first. Spiral staircases add a compact and elegant look to your build, while straight staircases are more traditional and straightforward.

Once you’ve decided which type you want, you then need to consider things like space, regulations, materials, and safety to ensure you install them in the right way. If this sounds like a lot to manage, you can work with us to get things done easily, quickly, and to a professional standard.

How do you budget for a hip to gable loft conversion?

To start your loft conversion budget, you’ll need to be aware of all the different elements involved. Things like windows, roofing, stair access, and even modifications to the building itself can all be factors to consider for a successful project. There are also sometimes unexpected costs that can occur, even if you prepare.

However, working with trusted specialists like the ones at Turner’s Lofts can offer an open look into what can be achieved and how much could cost – all with a free initial consultation.

Do you need planning permission for a hip to gable loft conversion?

When a loft conversion makes significant modifications to the exterior of an existing structure, it may require planning permission. Hip to gable conversions involve changing the slant of the roof entirely, which can increase this chance. There are also other factors such as the status of the building and neighbourhood that could affect the need for planning permission.

What lighting should I use in my loft conversion?

There is a range of lighting options that are perfect for hip to gable loft conversions, such as:

  • Natural lighting through regular or roof-installed windows
  • Lighting zones and controls
  • Energy-efficient LED fixtures

The type of lighting you choose should be determined by how you want the interior of your loft to look, what you plan to use it for, and your budget.

Are there any fire safety requirements?

Fire safety is incredibly important for any building. If your hip to gable loft is intended for tenants, or you’re making one as part of a semi-detached or terraced house, it’s even more crucial to ensure your building and the people in and around it are safe.

Smoke alarms, fire escape measures, and fireproofed materials are all good ways to protect your building and its occupants. It’s important to have a good understanding of the regulations and recommendations to get the right solution – or to work with trusted industry professionals.
