  • Do I Need Planning Permission for my Loft Conversion?
    You don’t normally require planning permission for a standard room-in-roof loft conversion – that may include a dormer – unless: · the newly converted space is over 50m³ (40m³ for a terraced home); · the dormer is beyond the plane of the existing roof slope on the front elevation. · the dormer is higher than the current highest part of the roof (this is often the case in mansard style extensions); · you want to include side windows that are non-obscure glazed and/or less than 1.7m above the floor. · you live in a specially designated area such as a Conservation Area or your home is listed; · the dormer will be within 20cm of the eaves. It is always best to check with your local planning department to clarify the above. Regardless of whether it needs planning approval, a loft conversion will require Building Regulations approval.

  • Do I need planning permission to convert a garage into a room?
    Do I need planning permission for a garage conversion? Usually, planning permissions are not required as long as your conversion is not going to affect the exterior surface of the home; once the exterior surface of the home starts being tampered with, then planning permissions will be required.
  • How much value does a dormer add to a house?
    Recent studies show that a loft conversion that added a double bedroom and bathroom to a three-bed, one-bathroom house can add about 20 per cent to its value — a substantial gain
  • Can you add dormers to an existing roof?
    The good news is that you can add a dormer to an existing roof. The bad news is that it's not a do-it-yourself job. I say this assuming you have limited carpentry and roofing experience. The dormer requires you, or the person building it, to have a complete understanding of roof flashings of just about every type.
