A rear dormer loft conversion is a dormer, in a variety of formats, that is built on the rear roof of your property. The rear dormer can be flat roof, pitched roof or mansard type. The dormer face and cheeks are clad in a selection of finishes. Most common is tile, this is hung and is normally matching or blended to match your property.

Other dormer finishes include – slate, rendered or brickwork.

How you choose the finish of your dormer depends very much on taste and planning regulations. Most planners want matching materials, but there is room to personalise your design so it meets with your aesthetics.

These cost from £30,000 to £45,000 depending on specification and size.
