Mansard Loft Conversions
One of the more popular services in the Wimbledon area for loft conversions are Mansard loft conversions. A mansard loft conversion can be popular in Wimbledon due to the high number of terraced and semi-detached homes, which can be difficult to allow for additions or extensions within your home. With a mansard conversion, you can efficiently create an extension within the top of your home and create enough space for two extra living spaces. A hip to gable loft conversion is for the most part not possible with terraced houses, while not creating the same amount of space other loft conversions would. Dormer loft conversions are both possible for semi-detached and terraced homes, but they will also not be able to add the same amount of space a mansard can. That is why if you are looking for a large extension within your home, a mansard loft conversion would be the best choice for you.
We can perform mansard conversions in areas such as Wimbledon Chase, Wandsworth, Surrey, Fulham, Morden, Croydon, Wimbledon, Sutton, Streatham Common, Balham, Epsom, Mitcham, New Malden and more.
Should I get a mansard loft conversion in London?
Mansard loft conversions would allow you to create two or even three rooms within the top of your home depending on both the size of your roof and the size of the mansard conversion itself. Unlike other loft conversions, mansard is mainly focused on extending the roof a large amount to the point you are technically creating a large home space, almost as if it would be an extra floor.
This is important if you are looking to create space for an extra bedroom or a home theatre. You may even be able to turn what would have been an extra room into a roof top balcony if you would prefer. With a mansard conversion, if what you need is not too far out of the realm of possibility you should be able to pass a permitted development. This would allow your design and loft wishes to be more than possible.
A mansard conversion does also give an extra benefit in addition to the extra comfortable living space within your home. The mansard loft conversion provides enough living space and useful materials that the property value of your home will skyrocket. Since the conversion itself provides two or three rooms worth of space, depending on what you decide to create those rooms into can make a huge difference on the value.
We had a customer many years ago that created a home cinema within their loft conversion complete with sound treated walls, and the property itself fetched more than double of what the mansard loft conversion cost. With the added property value on top of the extra living space and usable rooms within your home, the mansard loft conversion begins to pay itself back and very quickly.
