Are you wanting to utilize the loft space in your home, but are unable to alter the structure of the roof? If so, a Velux conversion may be the ideal solution.
Breathe new life into your loft by installing Velux windows into the existing roof structure. Letting in plenty of light, these will transform what would otherwise be a dark space into a light and airy addition to your home. These windows, alongside the conversion of your loft space into an extra room, will help to increase the value of your property.
Which properties will be suitable?
Unlike many other conversions, this style cannot provide you with any additional headspace and therefore is most suitable for properties which already have a reasonable amount of existing head height. Velux conversions are also permitted in conservation areas, offering a solution where options are limited.
Will I need planning permission?
In most cases, you shouldn’t need planning permission for this type of conversion, as it falls under the ‘permitted development’ regulations. However, planning permission is often required for Velux lofts if the property is located within a conservation area. When this is the case, sometimes this can affect the possibilities of the amount of Velux windows that are allowed and also the locations that they are permitted on the roof. Our team are on hand to make any enquiries and handle the application on your behalf to ensure that the process is as simple as possible for you.
