Mansard loft conversions work by expanding your loft and headroom, extending the roof upwards and creating near-vertical walls to do so. They are most commonly constructed in terraced houses, maximising the space that you have in your roof and making it liveable and useable.

WHAT IS A MANSARD LOFT CONVERSION?
Mansard loft conversions require more dramatic alterations to a property than dormer conversions. There are two roof slopes, with the lower slope being close to vertical at 72°, and the top slope being almost horizontal. This type of conversion is most commonly built by raising the party wall or gable wall on either side of the house, which will create the profile for the mansard, so a timber frame can be built.
Do be aware that this type of conversion will almost always require planning permission.
WHY MIGHT YOU CHOOSE A MANSARD LOFT CONVERSION?
