Loft conversions are where it all began 20 years ago for company owner Mick, so it will always have a fond place in the hearts of the MW lofts team. Equipped with this fondness, a creative approach, and over 20 years’ experience, we produce some truly stunning loft conversions.
At MW lofts we have an established reputation as one of the leading loft conversion companies currently operating in the Leeds, Bradford and surrounding West Yorkshire areas. We do our utmost to understand the customer requirements and needs. We know that if you are looking to convert your loft, you have a specific vision in mind for how you want that room to look and feel. We do everything to understand your vision and help you to realise your dream space.
Some of the different types of loft conversions we offer
Dormer: A dormer loft conversion is an extension to the current roof structure that vertically projects from a sloping roof. This will help to create additional headroom and space to a property allowing you to utilise all the potential space that your home has to offer.
Hip to Gable: A hip to gable loft extension or conversion extends the sloping side of your property it will replace the sloping roof with a vertical wall at the same height as the ridge, then filling in the space in between. It will once again increase headroom and add additional floor space to the property.
Mansard: A mansard loft conversion is usually constructed towards the the rear of a property that has a flat roof and a back wall that slopes inward. A mansard loft conversion will usually involve a large structural change to your property and as a consequence can be more expensive than other loft conversions.
Velux: A Velux or skylight loft conversion can often be both a cheaper option & great outcome for your home if you have a bit of extra space to work with. With considerably less construction work/time allocated to this type of loft conversion, this solution would be easier on the pocket & offer much less disruption.
Frequently asked questions
Q: Does my loft currently have enough height to be converted?
A: Typically, you will require at least 2.3m in height to enable your loft to be converted.
Q: Do I need planning permission to have a loft conversion?
A: As long as you aren’t extending your roof space, planning permission rules have been changed, meaning you don’t need it for a loft conversion as it falls within the category of permitted development.
Q: Is my loft big enough for a conversion?
A: Many homeowners will probably feel like their loft space is too small for a conversion, but they might be surprised to find what can be achieved with a dormer and imaginative design. Of course there needs to be a minimum of 7’6” height in the highest portion of the room.
Q: How long does a conversion take?
A: A simple loft conversion can be turned around in about 4-6 weeks, but a larger or more complex conversion could take up to 10 weeks to complete.
Q: Should I get a dormer conversion?
A: It’s certainly not true that need to have a dormer window, but it can be a nice addition for a smaller loft space, giving more headroom and allowing for better positioning of the staircase. There are also better angled views and better lighting options through a dormer window compared to a single skylight.
