Mansard loft conversions everything you need to know

A mansard loft conversion, named after the 17th-century French Architect Francois Mansard, is situated to the rear of the property. This type of conversion has a flat roof, with the back wall sloping inwards at an angle of 72 degrees. Windows are usually housed within small dormers which extend from the roof to create additional space.

What is a Mansard loft conversion?

Mansard space transformations can be considered as an; extension over the whole plane of your property’s rooftop. Regularly found at the back of properties, this sort of transformation changes the inclining side of your rooftop to a practically vertical side – one of no less than 72 degrees.

In spite of the fact that not frequently observed in rural territories – level rooftop dormers are normally less expensive and less complex to build – mansard rooftops are really appropriate for a wide range of properties.
