Loft dormer externsion

Loft Dormer Extensions in Essex are usually added to the rear of the house and can provide additional space for a bedroom or two or be used as an office or extra living area.

Types of Loft Dormer Extensions

Side Dormer

This type of dormer loft is a great way to add head height for houses with a hipped roof. Side loft dormer extensions are the perfect solution for adding head height without taking up too much space, and they can create an airy feel inside your home by making use of that extra light from outside!

Single Dormer

These are dormers that are added to the roof. They provide additional space for an office, bedroom, or extra living area. You can add one dormer if you would like more light and ventilation in a room without adding too much square footage to your home

Double Dormer

If you want even more natural light than what is provided and more symmetry in your dormer loft conversion, this is the option for you. Loft dormers can be added on top of an existing roof, or they can replace a section of your house’s roof entirely. These are perfect if you want to add value back into your home and create more livable square footage

L - Shape Dormer

These are only suitable for certain properties, such as Victorians’ addition to the back. The L-Shape dormer adds a lot of space to the equation.

Full - Width Dormer

This type of dormer loft conversion is used to maximize the use of the space, and one dormer window addition is perfect for adding a bedroom in an attic loft conversion. These dormers can also be used to create enough square footage to make even the tiniest home feel like it’s turning into a little castle!

Hip - to - Gable

A dormer is a type of hip replacement that replaces one or more of the hips with a gable wall that slopes in from the side(s) and front and back. The roof is then extended over these gables to provide the additional area with maximum headroom
How much does a loft dormer extension cost?

Loft Dormer Extensions in Essex are a more affordable, modern-style solution than other types of loft extensions. The cost can vary depending on the size and style you choose.

Speak to an architect or surveyor from My Builder Essex to get a specific quote for your home. In the UK, Loft Domer extensions cost around £20,000 that includes VAT and other expenses.

Do you need planning permission for a loft dormer extension in Essex?

In general, you need to get planning permission for a loft conversion. For Loft Dormer Extensions, this is not the case as it does not involve any internal structural alterations or changes in the use of the property.

However, your local authority may require some changes such as windows and ladders that make sure there are no obstructions to light and ventilation. It’s always advisable to check with authorities and builders such as My Builder Essex before starting off on a project like this one!

There may be special restrictions if you live in an area listed or part of a Conservation area. The planning department at the council will want to know what you propose; they may also send an officer round for a site visit and require plans of proposed alterations etc. which can be quite expensive if done by architects or surveyors.
