A dormer described
The boxy little buildings squatting on many London roofs are dormer extensions. Take a walk around your neighbourhood and you will realise just how many London homes are already benefiting from dormer roof extensions.
When our company was founded way back in the 90s, dormers provided extra space but little attention was given to a dormer’s exterior. As a result dormers gained a reputation as the ugly ducklings of roof extensions. 25 years experience has taught us to construct dormers which are discreet and attractive.
From the exterior a dormer appears much smaller than it actually is. In fact dormers usually become the biggest room in a home. The vertical walls and full height create a huge amount of extra space.
The room(s) inside a dormer do not look or feel like loft spaces. If you didn’t know otherwise you would think you were in a ‘normal’ room.
