Dormer Loft Conversion
What is a dormer loft conversion?
One of Chelmsford City Loft Conversions most commonly requested loft builds is the simple flat roof dormer loft conversion, which is suitable for most property types. This loft-style is a structural expansion that extends vertically from the slope of the existing roof, creating a box shape. This loft extension usually requires no significant alterations and allows for the installation of more budget-friendly conventional windows. The dormer provides you with good lighting and ventilation, adds valuable headroom, and a large amount of internal space in an otherwise cramped attic. Due to its box-shaped design, your interior walls will be straight and your ceilings flat.
