Loft Conversions in Stevenage, St Albans and the Surrounding Areas

Moving into a larger home doesn’t hold the same appeal for every property owner. In many cases, this might involve leaving a much-loved house and neighbourhood or moving out of a school catchment zone. Others simply want to avoid the well-known stress, inconvenience and expense associated with moving to a new home. However, staying put often means finding a solution to space and storage issues, especially when it comes to growing families. Loft conversions have long been a highly popular way to increase the practical living space within existing properties. When constructed by experienced building contractors, these conversions also increase the resale value of a home without any losses in the garden.


Based in Stevenage, BDH Builders covers the Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire region, including key service locations such as Harpenden, Hatfield, Hertford, St Albans, Watford and the surrounding villages. We provide start-to-finish project management for loft conversions of any kind, transforming under-used roof space into brand-new rooms of any concept and specification.


We understand that homeowners choose their building contractors carefully, so we pride ourselves on achieving 100% customer satisfaction, not just with loft conversions but across our complete range of building services.

An Introduction to Loft Conversions


Our building contractors share more than a decade of industry experience, so we have extensive expertise with every loft conversion style, including:


  • Dormer Loft Conversions – This type of conversion extends vertically from the slope of the existing roof. With vertical interior walls and a flat roof, they create ample headroom and floorspace. We can construct dormer conversions in any kind of property, just one of the reasons why they have become the UK’s most popular type of loft conversion
  • Mansard Loft Conversions – Built at the rear of properties in Stevenage, St Albans and the surrounding areas, Mansard designs consist of a flat roof, a sloping back wall and windows built into dormers for optimal natural lighting. These conversions also suit any type of home, especially terraced period properties, but they involve considerably more construction work than dormer designs
  • Hip-to-Gable Loft Conversions – These conversions raise the current side slope of a roof to the same height as the ridge. To do this, we extend the existing exterior wall to ridge height before covering the space with a new roofing structure. This process creates a new habitable area beneath the restructured roof. Hip-to-gable loft conversions can only be constructed on semi-detached and detached homes
