In need of additional space but not in a position to move house?
Could a loft conversion be the answer?
Sterey Design are experts in converting the space above your head into anything you could dream of: a spare bedroom for visitors, the ever-needed home office, a quiet space to think, a music room or the master suite to escape to.
All conversions are designed and built within and to meet the strict governmental building and planning regulations. As builders we work closely with local planners and building control ensuring the addition to your house meets the required regulations and is therefore safe for every member of your family to use.
There are various types of loft conversions:
A rear dormer creates a square end to the back of your house and has a flat roof. This creates a substantial amount of extra floor space and height. It is possible on most terraced and semi detached properties, and allows a greater choice of rooms within the loft space. It is often possible to construct a dormer without gaining planning permission.
These are smaller dormers constructed to be in-keeping with your property. A side dormer is used to replace a hip to gable construction when planning is required.
This involves changing the sloping side of your property, the "hipped side", to a flat, gable end, creating a much bigger loft room and often creating space for the staircase. This type of construction is normally only possible where planning permission is not required.
This is another construction to the rear of your property which has a flat roof, however, the back wall slopes inwards at an angle of 72 degrees and windows are housed in small dormers. Normally constructed where planning permission is required or your property falls into a conservation area.
With this type of construction the roof line is unaltered and a room is simply created in your existing loft space. This type of conversion lends itself to Victorian style houses and is often used if Planning Permission is required.
With over 30 years' experience we have the expertise and guidance on which type would best fit your home.
