What is a mansard extension?
A mansard is the most polished roof refurbishment possible. It’s the most aesthetically pleasing solution to expanding living space. Clapham Lofts replace either 1 or 2 of your roof’s slopes with a brand new structure. A mansard gives you almost vertical straight walls and a flat ceiling.
Almost vertical walls? Yes, the walls of a mansard slope in very slightly at 72 degrees. Why? Walls built at 72 degrees are classified as a roof – not a wall, by local authorities. Transforming a roof slope into an almost vertical wall gives you the most space possible.
Mansards are usually finished with attractive dormer windows.
Like anything worth having in life you pay a bit extra for a mansard, but get a whole lot more. A mansard requires a significant amount of building work. Planning permission is required but Clapham Lofts will obtain it for you.
Why is it called a mansard? This style of roof extension is named after the 17thcentury French architect, Francois Mansart. Mansart was renowned for his elegant and refined creations.
