During construction of a loft conversion the roof is weather proofed at the end of a day. A dormer is built with the existing roof still in place. Nothing is left on the scaffold that can be blown away.
Hip to gable loft conversion
Hipped roofs where designed as an economic method of construction. By extending these you can create a lot of space within the loft. A hip to gable loft conversion is usually required to accommodate the staircase, giving you lots of head room.

I am asked many times to build a ‘part build loft’ and I am very happy to help out with your project.
What is a part build loft conversion?
A part build is the first half of a loft conversion build and consists of building and changing the structure of an attic (this sometimes includes adding steels). Plus installing a staircase and Velux roof windows. These are all completed to building regulations, which I can help you with.
This gives you the freedom to finish the project yourself or hire your own trades (electrician, plasterer, 2nd fixer carpenter, plumber and decorator).

A loft conversion takes between 6 to 8 weeks to build
I am always asked this question and of course it varies on the size of your house. If it were an average, 3 bedroom terraced house, a dormer loft conversion including a master bedroom and with an en-suite bathroom, this would take between 6 to 8 weeks.
A Velux or eves loft conversion in an average 3 bedroom terraced house with a master bedroom and an en-suite bathroom would take between 5 to 6 weeks.
All loft conversions are built to building regulations
