As a company of experienced loft specialists, Spectacular Lofts Ltd handles a wide range of different loft conversion types and styles around Greater London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Kent. So, whether you live in a period property, a terraced home or a modern detached house, we are confident that our loft conversion company can help you find a solution that suit your needs, taste and property.
Although there are many different types of attic conversions to choose from, dormers are the most popular choice among homeowners in Crystal Palace, Dulwich and across the UK.
This is because they are suitable for practically any home with a pitched roof and loft space. They also require much less work and, therefore, are generally a lot cheaper than hip-to-gable and mansard loft conversions, which have their own, dedicated service pages on this website.
Some of the different types of dormers we undertake include:
L-Shaped Dormer – A popular choice for period properties. The L shape creates a sizeable space that often results in multiple rooms, such as two separate bedrooms, one of which could even be an en suite. Our loft specialists connect two dormer attic conversions together to form this L shape. We build one on the main roof and the other on the rear of the roof structure. Ideal for Edwardian and Victorian properties in Crystal Palace, Dulwich and the surrounding areas. This is because they often have an addition extending to the rear, housing bathrooms and kitchens. Also perfect for mid-terrace homes
Flat Roof Dormer – Usually constructed at the rear of a property, flat roof dormer loft conversions provide ample floor space for a master bedroom or home office, for example. As roofing specialists, our loft conversion company personnel install a range of different flat roofing systems, such as GRP and torch-on felt
Shed Dormer – Also known as a dustpan dormer, this style of attic conversions is a popular choice among homeowners in Crystal Palace and Dulwich. This is because you can increase living space with both width and height. The flat plane roof slopes in the same direction as your existing roof structure, but at a much shallower angle
Gabled Dormer – This is the most common of the many types of dormer loft conversions we carry out. It has a peak at the top and a pitched roof that slopes down on each side. This is a great way to tie your conversion into your existing roof structure. Also known as doghouse dormers
Hipped Dormer – Very similar to gabled dormers, except with three sides to the roof instead of just two. Perfect for properties with hipped roofs
