What is a Mansard Loft Conversion?

There are three different types of loft conversions which are available for people to have built into their homes to expand the space and ensure that they have more room to use as they wish. In this particular instance, the loft conversion that’s being covered is the Mansard Loft Conversion, which is perfect for the North London and Hertfordshire areas. But what is it about this loft conversion that makes it so desirable, and what do you need to know about it?

The Mansard Loft Conversion is one that requires more construction work than other conversions, but can often yield some of the best results, providing you with more room space to use for your purposes. The conversion is, put simply, an extension of the entire roof, as opposed to one particular area. This is achieved by changing the sloping element of the roof to a vertical plane. This effectively creates another storey in the house, changing a two storey property to a three storey property, and so on. This is ideal for the North London and Hertfordshire areas where there will be lots of properties stacked close together, and expanding sideways is not always possible, so this allows for more space by expanding upwards.
