LOOKING FOR L – SHAPED LOFT CONVERSIONS?

L-shaped loft conversions can also be known as dog leg conversions. With a property that’s suitable for this type of loft conversion, it is possible to create a huge amount of extra space compared with a conventional loft conversion.

The structure of the roof is one of the things that can affect the type of loft conversion. If your home has an extension to the rear then an L shaped dormer can be a great way to take advantage of the shape of the roof.

What Is An L Shape Loft Conversion?

L-shaped loft conversions typically consist of two dormers, joined together to form the distinctive L-shape. These are most suited to Victorian terrace houses, which often have extensions to the rear that do not go the full width of the property. The L shape can be created as a mansard too which can offer even more space than a dormer.

Is Planning Permission Required For An L Shaped Loft Conversion?

In most cases L shaped dormers do not need planning permission because everything is within the footprint of the house. That being said, this is something that should be discussed with your planners or designers. All work must be completed to building regulations.

You should always consult a professional  because of the complexity of the structure and additional work involved, such as altering drainage and putting in gutters to lead water away from the L shaped dormer.

Clapham Construction have done a great job on our loft conversion and we are very pleased with how smoothly the project went, and the brilliant loft space that we now have. Paul - thank you especially for guiding us through all the stages before and during the build. Their workmen were hard working from start to finish, efficient, and obviously very skilled. They were also polite, helpful and really tidy. We had great communication by email with their office, and with Paul in person and on the WhatsApp group - thank you. Our family in USA are now looking forward to staying with us in comfort this summer and beyond!

Paul, Dangis and the team are simply top notch. They did such a high-quality job on a tight timeframe and communicated so well throughout. They were a pleasure to work with, handled all elements of the build from start to finish and kept disruption as minimal as they could. Couldn’t recommend them more highly if I tried.

Thank you Clapham Construction! Your team were friendly, efficient, and highly motivated. The project ran to schedule with effective overlapping of tasks to allow for minimum disruption. Paul kept us actively involved at each stage of the process, so we always knew what was happening when, which was really reassuring. If we ever had a question, he would talk it through with us in person and offer advice without any pressure or expectation. The work is completed to an excellent standard. All the construction workers where kind, considerate, friendly, polite and kept our house as clean and tidy as possible. This took so much of the stress out of living on site during the works with a young son. Even the neighbours commented on how polite and considerate the builders had been. We would highly recommend this team for anyone thinking of undertaking a loft conversion in the future.

Absolute professionals is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Clapham Construction service. And there are two further things you need to know about them: they are brilliant at what they do and they are generous in spirit. Throughout our project Paul and Dangis answered our naive questions with warmth and care. They helped guide us at every turn, and almost certainly saved us money by making sure we considered all the options we had before making key decisions. But not just customer care, the building work is also top notch. The build itself was a well oiled process, coordinated with skill. I was initially worried about getting an anonymous loft company I'd never heard of in (after getting 8 different quotes from a variety of places including famous local ones) and being part of the 'box on the roof' brigade. Yet somehow, they have created build magic with some tweaks on 'a little bit of height' here, and 'a little configuration' there. We keep marvelling at the sturdiness and smoothness of the physical build even now, and the army of highly skilled teams they have were a pleasure to host in the house while we worked from home. And finally the most important bit - the money stuff- our Loft extension (including bathroom) was completed on time and more or less on budget. The additional costs were the unforseen - (yikes a victorian chimney needs dismantling!) and a few flourishes that we ourselves added to the mix - (can the door handles be gold?). Any additional build costs were communicated efficiently and immediately. Our experience of Clapham Construction is that they are patient, hugely knowledgable, and detail orientated with a wealth of incredible advice. Don't delay on getting them on your project!

We spoke to a few companies to quote our dormer loft conversion but were immediately impressed speaking to Dangis & Paul and went with Clapham CS. We’re really happy with the end result which has given us some much needed extra space. Progress was quick, these guys are very experienced and know exactly what they’re doing. They’ll talk you through your plans and give you honest advice at key stages when you need to make a decision, very patient with us too! Would definitely recommend, they’ve done numerous houses in our neighbouring streets too, end results always look great.

Highly recommend this company. As first time buyers and first time renovators we couldn't be happier with their service. Paul and Dangis are very professional and thorough, at no times does it feel like corners are cut. They are able to provide genuine advice and guidance while being accommodating ensuring a stress free process.

Clapham Construction completed our kitchen extension for us. We’re really pleased with the results, and it has changed the whole place. The price was agreed upfront and there were no hidden extras. Good communication throughout the whole process on WhatsApp and Dan showed great building experience. They had the whole team from build, kitchen fitting through to finishing the garden off available in house so made it a lot easier. Thanks guys.

L SHAPED LOFT CONVERSION - FAQS

What is an L-shaped loft conversion?

An L-shaped loft conversion is a type of extension that combines a rear dormer conversion and a hip to gable conversion. The ‘L’ shape comes from the layout of the conversion, which extends over the rear extension of the house, creating a larger amount of space.

How much does an L-shaped loft conversion cost?

The cost of an L-shaped loft conversion can vary greatly depending on the size of the project, the materials used, and the location of the property. On average, you can expect to pay between £40,000 and £60,000 as a base line.

Do I need planning permission for an L-shaped loft conversion?

In many cases, an L-shaped loft conversion falls under permitted development rights and does not require planning permission. However, this can depend on a number of factors including the size of the conversion and the location of the property. It’s always best to check with your local planning authority.

What kind of design ideas are popular for L-shaped loft conversions?

There are many design possibilities for L-shaped loft conversions. They can be used to create multiple rooms, such as an extra bedroom and a bathroom, or a large master suite with a private bathroom. Some people choose to use the extra space for a home office, a playroom, or a home gym. The design will largely depend on your personal needs and preferences.

Can I do an L-shaped loft conversion on any type of house?

L-shaped loft conversions are typically suited to certain types of properties, such as Victorian terraced houses, which often have an existing rear extension. The ‘L’ shape is formed by extending the loft over this rear extension. If your property doesn’t have a suitable layout, other types of loft conversions may be more appropriate. It’s always best to consult with a loft conversion specialist who can advise on the best solution for your property.
