A mansard attic extension is the most stylish way to improve your London home, create more living space and increase the value of your property.
A mansard attic extension is refined and elegant. It is fittingly named after French architect Louis Mansart who was renowned for his chic, architectural designs.
We think even Mr Mansart would be impressed with the design and quality of London Loft’s mansard attic expansions.

A mansard described
A mansard is not the cheapest roof refurbishment option. It’s a value for money way to add a whole new top floor in your London home.
A mansard adds a new dimension to exclusive London homes. Mansards are often added to larger properties in London’ suburbs.
To construct a mansard attic expansion, one of your roof’s surfaces is replaced with a completely new structure. The new mansard structure boasts near vertical walls and a flat ceiling.
The walls of a mansard do have a slight tilt (72 ) which is barely noticeable. The reason for the tilt is; it enables the walls to be classified as roof surfaces by local authorities.
A mansard usually requires planning permission. We quickly obtain this for you. A mansard also requires a fair bit of construction work. .
