Is my property suitable for a dormer loft conversion?

Is my property suitable for a dormer loft conversion?

The minimum height for a conventional cut rafter along with purlin rooftop should be 2.2m to 2.4m. A chimney or lift zone that goes through the top won’t influence your loft conversion. However, you might have to relocate the boiler if maximising extra space is the goal for your loft conversion.

If the roof has felt under the tiles, it has to be fully weathered. No felt? You have to be able to see the back of the roof tiles and battens they are fixed to. In most specialised properties, such as a Victorian house, the rooftop slate front has felt already installed.

You can move on if you tick these boxes. If there are any problems, you might have to make some adjustments before the conversion can begin.
