Timeline for your project

The general estimate is of 8 to 12 weeks for the construction of a loft conversion, although it’s crucial to understand that this is a very rough average. The actual duration can vary significantly based on factors including the planning process, customer requirements and size of the project. For example some loft conversions might be completed in a shorter time, while others may take several months.

In practice, the timeline for a loft conversion is often influenced by the specific details. It’s common for homeowners to experience timelines that fall outside the general average due to these variables. We always work closely to work out the best timeline for your specific project and it’s necessities.

The Diiferent Types of Loft Conversion

Here at RT Roofing Services we offer a range of loft conversion options depending on the style of your home.

The suitability of a particular type often depends on factors such as the existing roof structure, available space and local planning regulations. Here are some of the common types of loft conversions we complete.

Velux Conversion/Roof Light

This is the simplest and least disruptive type of loft conversion. It involves adding windows (usually Velux) into the existing roof slope without changing its shape. This style is often the most cost-effective and requires minimal alteration to the roof structure.

Dormer Conversion

Dormer windows are structures that project vertically from the plane of a sloping roof. A dormer loft conversion involves adding a box-shaped extension to the existing roof – creating additional floor space and height. Dormers are versatile and can be built in various styles, such as flat roof, gable fronted or hipped roof.

Hip-to-Gable Conversion

This type is suitable for properties with hipped roofs, where the roof slopes down to the eaves on all sides. In a hip-to-gable conversion the hipped end is extended vertically to create a gable end – providing more internal space.

Mansard Conversion

A Mansard loft conversion involves replacing one or both sides of the roof with a nearly vertical wall and a flat roof. This often maximises the available space and creates a more aesthetically pleasing design.

Gable-to-Gable Conversion

Gable-to-gable conversions involve extending the existing gable wall to create additional space. This type may include adding dormer windows for extra light and headroom.
