More Info: At re-style loft conversions we specialize in converting both traditional and modern truss rafter roofs. The information below should help you determine which type of roof construction you have.
Traditional rafter roof
Traditional rafter roofs are mainly found in houses built prior to the mid 1960's. The roof construction comprises of timber rafters fixed at the top to a ridge board and fixed at the bottom to the wall plate. Large section timber perlins are fixed at the mid span, to support the roof and prevent it from sagging.
Modern truss rafter roofs
Modern W truss rafter roofs are usually found in houses built after the mid 1960's. The idea behind the W shaped rafter is to reduce the size of the timbers used in the Traditional rafter roof, making the construction of the roof simpler and quicker, as well as incorporating the ceiling joists within the design.
By creating the W shaped rafter, the loft area is congested with timber bracings and struts leaving no open spaces. Due to this most people think there's no way their loft can be converted. With excellent planning and the use of steel beams designed by our structural engineer, we can remove the W shaped bracings and struts to create the open space required to convert your loft.
