Your Mansard Loft Conversion Guide

You may have thought about the fact that you’re having a loft conversion, but have you thought ahead to what type of conversion you’re going to have?

Have You Considered a Mansard Loft Conversion?

This is one of the best ways to convert a loft although there is a lot of construction work to consider. What you’ll have at the end of it however, is a loft conversion which is full of extra space, and more than worth the time and effort that’s been put into creating it.

Planning Permission

With a mansard loft conversion, you will need planning permission because it’ll involve changing the roof structure. It’s a good idea to speak with an architect or a builder before you start so you are well prepared. A mansard loft conversion will usually consist of a flat roof with a 72-degree slope. You will also have dormer windows built in with parapet walls. This will help it match up with the rest of your property.


It will be more expensive than more traditional loft conversions, but a mansard is a perfect choice if you really need a lot more floor space. There’ll be a bit of a mess, noise and some upheaval, but it’ll be worth it in the end once you have your mansard loft conversion finished. What’s most important is that you hire builders you can trust, ones with a good reputation and a past history of completing this type of conversion.

So, the most important question is, why should you invest in a mansard loft conversion, what’s in it for you?

  • It provides a lot of space

  • It’s suitable for most types of property

  • It really fits in well with the existing style of your home.

The only disadvantages with this type of conversion is that there’s a lot more work involved and it’s a little more expensive than more traditional loft conversions. However, if you want to maximise your space and you have the budget for it, you may well consider it worth the extra expense.
