A Velux® loft conversion, also known as a Skylight or Roof light loft conversion, is one of the most common types of conversion because it doesn’t require extensive changes to the roof and usually doesn’t require planning permission. We have extensive experience installing and repairing Velux loft conversions throughout Enfield, Barnet, Essex, Hertfordshire, and the South East.
What is a Velux Loft Conversion?
A Velux loft conversion turns a loft into a usable space and adds Velux windows to the roof – these windows do not jut out from the pitch of the roof like Dormers, but work with the existing lines of the roof to let light in without requiring extensive building work.
Velux windows let in a lot of natural light due to their angles and because these windows have fewer obstructions (ie. trees, other buildings) than other windows lower down in the house. While these conversions do not add a lot of headroom to a loft space, they are often quick to finish and cost less than many other loft conversions because they do not require extensive changes to the exterior of the house.
There are a wide variety of Velux roof windows to choose from with different finishes and opening options to suit your personal preferences. There are also a range of blinds to ensure that you can block out any light, keep the loft conversion cool, and ensure that the space is well-insulated. Electric windows are also available, whether you prefer to close them with a remote control or if you would like to fit your windows with a sensor so that they close automatically when it is raining.
