Loft Building Regulations

The rear dormer is basically done by stripping out the rear sloping timbers and putting almost an entire new flat roof structure and straight rear wall to the rear of the property.

Depending on budget the new dormer roof is finished off externally with a felt, zinc, or asphalt whilst the sides and front are usually finished off in slate or tile to match the existing roof.

In recent years - in certain types of property - it’s become popular to install a pair of French doors and create a mini balcony on the rear dormer. It allows in loads of light and of course by opening up the doors you get a lovely breeze blowing through.

Whether you put French doors or windows in its really important that you buy good quality because this particular area is exposed to the elements. Repainting or doing maintenance to these doors or LOFT CONVERSION BALCONYdormer windows is also awkward as the windows are set back into the roof and ladder access is usually not adequate. Given the costs of scaffolding just to paint a few windows you would be well advised to install uPVC windows within the rear dormers.

Another point of concern is that an increasing number of properties are adding extensions to make it even more difficult to get access to maintenance on the dormer so the idea is to make sure you don’t skimp on this work.

The most important point here is that the dormer is completed with the same roofing materials. I’ve  seen countless dormers that have been finished off with tiles of a different colour or pattern and it is absolutely crazy that if you spend 30k or so on your property that you ruin the entire project by sticking a box on your roof rather than ensuring that the dormer is as aesthetically pleasing as possible.
