Generally, when doing a loft conversion, people want windows. Most often we install the windows flat into a wall. But for a more stylish and artistic flair, some homeowners wish to enjoy a more unique and stunning outward appearance. So then dormer windows become an excellent choice for those who wish to realize a new charm and appeal for their home.
Since the location of a dormer window is generally on the side of a sloping roof, it brings natural light into an attic, loft, or any room with a vaulted ceiling. This type of window juts outward from the pitch of the main roof and features a little roof of its own just above the window.
In addition to unique charm and appeal, another benefit of a dormer loft conversion is functionality. Dormer windows increase the volume of the roof space while offering full head height within the confines roofs with steep angles.
Is a loft conversion cheaper than a room addition?
Loft conversions are one of the most popular home improvement projects in San Diego because they cost-effective. In comparison to a full room addition, a dormer loft conversion is usually lower in cost; however each home is different so then maybe not. It depends. So it’s best to have us over for a quick consultation so we can see the project space and give you an estimate.
How long does a dormer loft conversion take?
Once construction begins a simple loft may take 2-3 weeks to complete. Depending on project parameters, it might take longer. Maybe up to 3 months if, for example, a bathroom and an external deck is involved in the new loft construction.
Bathrooms in Loft Conversions
You may want to include a bath or shower room in your loft conversion. The best place for this is generally directly above your existing bathroom or kitchen. This is for convenience and lower cost. This way we can connect into the existing drainage, electrical, and plumbing without the need for excessive piping, wiring, and other conduits. Doing this saves time, labor and part, which translates to a lower overall cost. However this is optional. We can install bathrooms just about anywhere you want. It just might take longer to run all the extra stuff.
Do I have to move out for a loft conversion?
No, you don’t need to move out of your property during loft construction. We’ll do our best to isolate the work space in order to keep your living space free from dust and exposure to other building debris.
Are dormers in a loft conversion worth it?
