A mansard roof has the advantage of maximising the available space within your loft. Mansard conversions are commonly built by raising the walls either side of your house to make the profile for the mansard and then creating the timber frame. Although this is common in older properties, however it is also used for flat roof properties which fall within a conversation area. A Mansard loft conversion will almost certainly require a planning permission.
A Hip to Gable loft conversion usually occurs with semi-detached, detached or end of terraced houses. Additionally this style of loft conversion is usually built when a house has 3 separate slanting sides of its roof. The side of the roof is then extended out and made vertical this can also be beneficial when a house lacks the required space within the loft to build any other style of loft conversion. A hip to gable conversion will also allow for a more seamless staircase fitting within your home due to the newly created space within your home. All changes made to the property externally will be fitted and matched within all pre-existing aspects of the house, allowing for an overall aesthetically pleasing look inside and out.
