Velux Loft Conversion
What is a Velux loft conversion?
The Velux loft conversion is a design that uses Velux windows, which are fitted into the pitch of your roof, thus allowing light into the room. If your existing loft space has enough headroom, then this loft conversion is one of the most straight forward and cost-effective ways of adding additional space to your home. When compared to other types of loft conversions like mansard, hip to gable and dormer, Velux loft conversions require the least amount of building work which saves you time and money.
Does a Velux Loft Extension in Chelmsford, Essex or the South East require planning permission?
When you decide on a Velux loft conversion, there is usually no need to request planning permission from your local authority. Unlike other loft conversions, this type of loft conversion doesn’t make significant changes to the structure of your home, as there is no additional length or width to your roof once the windows are installed. The goal is to maximise the existing space you already have to its full potential while introducing natural light into your new living area. Our expert team at Chelmsford City Loft Conversions will provide you with free advice and guide you through the whole planning process, making sure all the work adheres to building regulations.
