Adding feature dormers to a loft conversion is great way of improving the internal space and maximising the light into your new room. If the internal space within your loft feels quite tight then feature dormers can greatly improving the usable space inside the loft or can often make up the additional space required for adding en-suite’s or walk in wardrobes. Another benefit of feature dormers are the external appearance. On larger properties the existing roof space can often look very large and uncompromising with mass areas of tiles or slates. Feature dormers help to break up these spaces, add character and symmetry to dull, plain surfaces.
At Access we believe that the best way to finish dormer windows is to cover them in concrete plain tiles that match the existing roof colour. This helps to keep the dormer free of maintenance for years to come and by matching the roof colour keeps the dormer in character with the existing property. Also when possible we aim to use all the existing roof tiles on the new dormer roof which keeps the dormer looking original and part of the existing roof structure. On request we can also clad dormers in timber or UPVC if you have something you would like us to match or you prefer these options.
All external fascia boards, soffits, guttering and down pipes are matched to the existing property so that there in keeping with the rest of the property.
Feature Dormers can also be combined with Velux Windows, Flat Dormers and Hip To Gable Dormers. Please browse the other options to see the benefits of combining these with additional windows.
