Mansard

A mansard loft conversion extends across the entire plane of your roof. They are usually found at the rear of a property, although it is possible to have a front or double mansard; planning permitting. This type of conversion effectively alters the sloping side of your roof so that it is nearing a vertical angle of between 72 and 90 degrees.

Mansard loft conversion in Surrey

This type of conversion is suitable for the majority of property types. It is probably most popular in built up urban areas, and is commonly found on terraced houses. It is going to give you the maximum possible amount of additional living space compared to any of the other types of loft conversions. If you live in a more suburban area and have the space, you might prefer to consider opting for an outward extension rather than an upward one in order to achieve the kind of space a mansard would be able to give you.

A mansard is also going to be the most expensive of all loft conversions, and it will take the most time, largely due to the significant amount of exterior construction work required. You are effectively altering the shape and structure of your roof. However, the end result can be life-changing if you are craving a generous amount of additional space to accommodate a growing family, for example. To all intents and purposes, you are adding another storey to your property, which could be invaluable to you. Not to mention the additional value you could add to your property should you want to sell in the future.

If you decide that a mansard conversion is going to be the most beneficial way for you to gain the space you need, please be aware that you will almost always require planning permission to carry out such works. It is worth having a look to see if any other similar properties in your road/area have had this type of work completed, as that can give you a clue as to whether it might be possible or not. Once again, any questions or uncertainties then please contact us and we will assist you.
