Velux loft conversions (named after the brand of window frame) are one of the most practical ways of converting an empty loft or attic.
Velux windows are fitted either side of a sloped roof and the space itself is transformed accordingly, usually into a bedroom or home office.
This style is popular as, aside from the window fittings, no other alterations to the roof are required.
Other benefits include:
- Minimal disruption – just need to convert the loft space and add the windows
- Cheaper than Dormer, mansard and hip to gable loft conversions
- No planning permission required whilst adding value to your home
- Once built, the roof can be further altered to incorporate a Dormer or a mansard
Provided there is sufficient height in your loft or attic, velux loft conversions are a simple, cost effective way of creating additional living space and adding value to your home.
