Which Loft Conversion Type is Right for my Home?

You must take several factors into consideration when considering a loft conversion, which include adequate insulation, the space available to you and obtaining planning permission as well as the intended use of the created space. We undertake three main varieties of loft conversions in Northwich:

Improved stair access is also a benefit of opting for a Dormer conversions. Planning permission is required for a Dormer conversion, which accounts for its slightly less popular status when compared with a standard Window conversion. However, many Dormer Conversions are granted planning permission on first application.
