Dormers

Dormer

What is a Dormer?

A dormer is a structural element of a building that protrudes from the plane of the sloping roof surface.  Dormers are used, either in original construction or as later additions, to create usable space and height within the roof.  Dormers are a valuable addition when designing a loft conversion, enabling the addition of windows and balconies.

Types of Dormers

Flat roof dormer:
The roof of this dormer is flat and almost level with a frontal eave that parallels the main roof eave.  A slight fall to the top is required for rainwater drainage.  They are usually large in size creating a large living space within the roof.

Pitched roof dormer:
The roof of this dormer is pitched.  They are always smaller than a flat roof dormer because the Apex cannot protrude above the main roof.  They are usually designed for the larger roof and are mainly positioned on the front elevation.

Dormer/ Roofing Tiles

Matching the dormer tiles/ slates with the existing roof material is extremely important.  Permitted development/ planning conditions require the materials used for the dormer(s) to blend in with the existing roof and surrounding area.  Please browse through our online brochures for choices available.

UPVC Windows

The benefit of having a dormer as part of the design is not only the space created but also having an ordinary vertical window.  We will match your existing windows or if your old windows require replacement then why not include this as part of the project.  We mostly use Eurocell white profile uPVC windows as standard, however, we can supply any colour/ style included in the brochures here.  Please take particular attention to the Care & Maintenance brochure.
