Velux Loft Conversion

Velux Loft symbolWith this type of construction the roof line is unaltered and a room is simply created in your existing loft space. Velux windows are installed to fit flush with the line of the roof and leave the existing roof structure untouched. As they do not require extensive alterations to the roof this option helps keep the cost of the conversion down.

As the loft is not extended beyond the original roof line planning permission is not normally required.

2.3m Head room is required. If you suspect the existing headroom will not be sufficient to allow you to convert your loft – don’t worry. There are ways and means of getting around this, though extra cost involved.
