Dormer Loft Conversions

What is a dormer loft conversion?

A dormer loft conversion can be a cost-effective alternative to moving house or business, which is why many people in the UK choose to convert their lofts. At Milestone Lofts, we specialise in all types of loft or attic conversions, catering to spaces of every size and shape, including those with low roofs. Whether you need extra bedrooms, bathrooms, a home office, gym, entertainment room, hobby space, or something else entirely, we provide award winning high-quality solutions and designs.

One of our most popular types of dormer loft conversion is the flat roof dormer, which is suitable for both domestic and commercial buildings across the UK. This style of conversion involves extending your loft with a flat roof that seamlessly integrates with your existing sloped roof. By doing so, it creates additional floor space and headroom, transforming your loft into usable living space.

For smaller roofs, this type of conversion significantly enhances the usability of the loft space, and the overall value to your home. Without a dormer, small buildings would only accommodate a single bedroom or home office. However, with a rear dormer, the available floor and headspace increase substantially, often resulting in even the smallest loft becoming a spacious double master bedroom complete with an ensuite and storage area.

To see just how much more space a loft dormer can create, check out our loft guide on How Much Extra Space Does A Loft Dormer Really Create?.

There are various types of dormers available, ranging from large flat roof loft dormers to smaller pitched roof dormers. The main advantage of having a dormer is that it expands the total volume of usable and walkable footprint in any loft conversion. Additionally, dormers typically feature larger windows, allowing more natural light to flood into the loft room. At Milestone Lofts, our dormers are built to the same high standard as the rest of our construction work, meeting all relevant Planning and Building Regulations for construction quality and thermal efficiency.
