More and more Wandsworth homeowners are making their properties bigger by adding an impressive top floor. This spacious extra floor is created by a mansard attic extension.
A mansard attic extension merges so well into a property; it’s hard to believe it wasn’t always part of the house. Mansard roof refurbishments create loads of extra space. They are a desired and elegant feature in a prestigious property.
They are named after the acclaimed 17th-century French architect Francois Mansard.
A mansard gives you the most space, the greatest headroom and adds a whole extra floor to your house.

A mansard is the perfect attic extension for:-
Edwardian, Victorian and Georgian period homes.

What is a mansard attic extension?
A mansard is the mark of excellence in attic conversions. More space than you dreamed possible becomes reality. They are pleasito on the eye, adds to Wandsworth’s impressive skyline and increases the value of your home.
They usually involve 1 or sometimes 2 sides of your roof being transformed into a new construction. The finished construction boasts what appear to be straight walls. The walls do tilt in slightly (72 ) as this enables them to be classified as a roof rather than a wall by local authorities. This slight tilt is only noticeable on close scrutiny. A flat roof completes your new structure.
Voila your roof has morphed into comfortable living accommodation with plenty of headroom.
