Loft conversions

Let’s convert your unused attic space to a beautiful loft conversion.

In a few quick steps tells us about your home and we will help you to design your bespoke loft conversion

Expanding your living space is always helpful, and there are different types of loft conversions that you can opt for. Thankfully, since 2015, London’s planning regulations have become much simpler, something that increased the demand for loft conversions.

Our team at Herko London can help you add some additional living space to your home, while also increasing its resale value. At the same time, we deliver the utmost craftsmanship and focus on sustainability. This way, it becomes easier to not only enhance your lifestyle, but also increase your quality of living. We make it easy to convert loft conversions according to the Permitted Development regulations. That means less hassle and a high-quality result when it comes to quality and efficiency.

What kind of loft conversions can you opt for?

There are a multitude of loft conversion types, which include:

We will carefully assess your current needs, along with the local planning regulations, budget, space, roof height and property style to identify the right type of loft conversion that fits your requirements!

Mansard loft conversion

Mansard loft conversions received their name after a famous French architect named Francois Mansard, who lived during the 17th century. These conversions are usually performed on the rear of any property. Generally, a mansard loft conversion has a flat roof. Moreover, the black wall will have a 72-degree slope. In order to create even more living space, windows are set in small dormers.

A mansard loft conversion needs planning permissions, since you will end up changing the roof structure and shape. Herko London can help you acquire planning permissions, while also making it easy to customize your mansard loft conversion the way you see fit. We also specialize in L-shaped mansard conversions. Our focus is to help add more value to the property and open up the living space. These mansard conversions can be great if you want to transform the loft into an open space area, while bringing more natural light. 

Dormer loft conversion

The dormer loft conversion is designed to extend the current roof. Instead of being a sloping roof, now it projects vertically. In doing so, you will have more headroom, while also generating extra floor space for your home. Inside, the dormer will have a horizontal ceiling with vertical walls. Dormer loft conversions are very popular because they bring the most amount of extra living space.

There’s also the option to create a hipped roof dormer or gable front, although these options won’t provide you as much living space, and they are more expensive. You can choose from different types of dormer loft conversion, which include a flat roof dormer, a shed dormer, hipped roof dormer or a gable-fronted dormer. Another important aspect is that in most cases you don’t need any planning permission for your dormer loft conversion. However, depending on the specifications and requirements, that might become a necessity. 

L-shape dormer loft conversion

The L-shape dormer loft conversion is designed to help create 2 dormer builds that are joined together. One of the dormers will be constructed on the rear outrigger roof, and then the other one is built on the main roof. That’s what gives this build the L-shape. These conversions are suitable for almost every property type, although it greatly benefits Victorian or Edwardian era properties.

Those properties already have an existing rear wing where you can perform the L-shape dormer loft conversion. Such a conversion doesn’t require planning permission, instead it stays within the permitted development rules. However, if you want to have a more complex L-shape dormer loft conversion, you will need to get in touch with the local authorities.

Hip to gable loft conversion

Most hip roofed homes don’t have lots of space inside. That’s where a hip to gable loft conversion can be a great option. During this process, you’re modifying the property’s sloping side. You’re transforming it to a flat gable end. Upon doing that, you will have more loft space, and you also get the space necessary for your staircase.

Due to the complexity of a hip to gable loft conversion, you will need a planning permission most of the time. Our Herko London team can help with both simple and complex hip to gable loft conversions, all you need is to contact us today!

Steps you need to go through after booking a Herko London loft conversion:

We will meet with you at the property and discuss any of the home improvements and what kind of loft conversions you want to opt for.

After understanding your needs, we will assess your property’s suitability for these projects. We will perform a survey, share our findings with you and then create a plan for the next steps.

We will provide a quote based on our findings, and then you will arrange a meeting with one of our architects.

If the loft conversion project requires a planning permission, we will help you apply for that.

You will be introduced to our project manager and foreman, then we will schedule a timeline for the project and start your loft conversion. Our project manager visits the location very often and he will keep you up to date with the latest progress.
