Loft Conversions in Reading, Henley on Thames and the Surrounding Oxfordshire Areas

Used mostly for seasonal storage, the loft is an ideal area to convert as the majority of the space is already there and mostly vacant. By rearranging the structure of the roof, we can create another room, or series of rooms, which will provide plenty of options for a growing family. Colin Sawyer & Son Builders Ltd construct a range of loft conversions for clients in Reading, Henley on Thames and the surrounding Oxfordshire areas, including:

  • Dormer Conversions

  • Hip-to-Gable Conversions

  • Mansard Conversions

  • Velux Conversions

Combining 45 years of experience between us, we’re a leading name in construction, renovations and refurbishments. For images of the works we carry out, please click onto our gallery page.

Types of Loft Conversions

It’s not always possible to enlarge your home by adding property extensions. For suburban or centrally located homes, the size of the plot will determine what you can and can’t do. And, for those with landscaped gardens and established patio areas, you may not wish to alter these either.

We offer a selection of loft conversions to suit the layout of your property:


By adding a box-shaped extension to a pitched roof, our builders will turn your Henley on Thames or Reading loft into a usable room with increased floor and headspace. With these newly inserted walls at 90 degrees, a dormer loft conversion is a popular choice for adding plenty of kerb appeal.

Hip to Gable

Hip-to-gable conversions expand the existing space at the exposed side of your property. By building up the hip of the roof to lie flush with the existing gable, the roof line is then extended out to join the new addition. We can fit Velux windows to brighten the new interior, and a feature window at the gable end.


Named for the 17th Century French architect, Francois Mansard, and similar to dormer conversions, this option restricts the angle of the newly inserted walls to 70 degrees. With dormer windows inserted, headspace is instantly improved, giving you plenty of options for this loft conversion.


If the loft space is large enough for minor renovations, we will insert Velux windows into the existing roof for natural daylight. By removing the beams and constructing supporting walls near the lowest point under the rafters, your attic will be transformed into a functioning space and still have ample storage.
