The most popular type of loft conversion is the flat attic dormer roof. This is a structural extension which juts out vertically from the downward slope of the existing roof, creating additional boxed space within the roof. This type of extension generally requires minimal structural changes.
L Shape Mansard
An L shaped mansard loft conversion is constructed by raising the party wall (the wall shared with your neighbours). The roof remains flat, while one outer wall slopes gently inwards. L Shape Mansards in general extend across the width of the property then angles 90 degrees inwards. Although mansards are suitable for many property types, they are the most popular in terraced houses.

The types of loft conversion that APT Build
ATTIC FLOOR EXPANSION
The attic can be transformed in an ultimately cozy living space where family & friends can spend time and have fun together.
DORMER LOFT CONVERSION
The dormer loft conversion we provide is an extension of the existing roof, that protrudes vertically from a downlard sloping roof. This creates additional floor space and head height within the loft area.
ROOF LIGHT CONVERSION
Because a roof light conversion is not considered to overlook neighbours properties, you don't usually have to apply for planning permission this cuts out alot of the planning paperwork. With this type of conversion Velux windows is the prime choice for slanted roof glazing.
HIP TO GABLE
APT's Hip to Gable extension expands the hip of your existing roof through to the Gable end. This type of loft conversion gives greater roof space and also enables a larger rear dormer to be constructed maximising your interior space. This style is most popular in semi-detached houses.
Once a Truss roof lofts has been converted, they usually offer a larger more spacious room than traditional gabled roofs, thus they add that much more ambient space around your loft.
ROOF LIFT/ ADDIONAL FLOOR
If you need a loft conversion, and your existing attic space doesn’t have the headroom, then a roof lift is the answer. APT Can either perform a roof lift where we raise the ridge line of your existing roof, or we can constructing a whole new floor. These types of structural changes are subject to Planning Permission.
