At Construct 1 , we offer a number of different home extensions. We offer a design & build solution, or we can build to your vison and appointed Architects drawings. Whatever decision you make you’ll be sure to get a high-quality home extension that will undoubtedly refresh and enhance your property.
Building an extension has a number of strong advantages over moving home:
When it comes to loft conversions, we can guarantee that you will never be short for styles to perfectly complement your home. Every conversion can be individually tailored to meet both your requirements and the theme that you aim to convey. The three main types of loft conversions available for your property are:
Not only does a dormer conversion renovate your current space, but it also adds a slight extension to the roof which allows a sloped room to become vertical. The extension projects vertically from your existing roof to provide extra headroom, floor space and natural light.
A Velux conversion utilises the original shape and layout of the loft, but creates the appearance of a larger space by adding Velux windows to the roof. The structure of the roof is not changed at all, which means that the loft needs to be relatively bigger in height to live comfortably in the room.
Many properties have a sloped roof on one side, which makes it tricky to fit a loft conversion. During a hip to gable conversion, the sloped side of the roof is extended, which means that the slope will be replaced with a vertical wall. The sloping side is named the ‘hip’, and the vertical wall is the ‘gable’, which is why this particular conversion type has been given a unique name.
