Loft Conversions in Sutton
Adding a Balcony to Your Loft Conversion with Local Specialists

There are many benefits to adding a balcony to your property. Balconies can raise your property value by up to 12%, as well as creating a calming space for you, increasing the flow of fresh air and enhancing natural daylight. Most balconies can be easily installed by our team of loft conversion specialists during projects in Sutton and the South West London area.

With a combined 15 years of experience, our roofing company can handle all loft conversions and associated installations. 

Most balconies require generic or branded Velux roof windows, which our team of rooflight installers are well equipped to supply and install.

Balconies that require building a new outdoor area are likely to need planning permission. However, there are a few styles of balcony that will usually fall under permitted development. 

Balcony Types

  • Juliet Balcony
  • Rooftop Balcony
  • Window Balcony
  • Mezzanine Balcony

Juliet Balcony
Juliet balconies are a great addition to any loft conversion we install in Sutton and South West London as they increase light, add airflow and are unlikely to require planning permission. They are essentially large inward-opening French doors on a vertical wall that allow you to connect with the outdoors.

Whilst Juliet balconies don’t have a standing or seating space, this can actually be a benefit. Because there is no outdoor area to install, other than a balustrade for safety, it will likely fall into the category of permitted development. Our loft conversion specialists and rooflight installers can advise you on anything to do with planning or permitted development.

As with any balcony, one of the big draws is the amount of natural light that the glass doors, or Velux roof windows, will provide, even when closed.

Rooftop Balcony
Only available on a flat roof, a rooftop balcony allows complete enjoyment of the outdoors. Edged with glass balustrades, rooftop balconies can be a sleek addition to your home. This balcony can be accessed from either the dormer or mansard loft conversions we will install for you.

It usually requires planning permission and, if you obtain it, a rooftop balcony can be your own personal outdoor utopia with great views of Sutton and the surrounding South West London area. There are many ways to decorate your rooftop which are perfect for socialising, creating a relaxing getaway space or just soaking in the sun.

Because we trade as a roofing company that specialises in conversions, the rooftop style of balcony is one that we are very much familiar with.

Window Balcony
A window balcony is a rooflight that opens outwards from the top-hung upper section, while the bottom section extends into a balcony with side railings. This balcony type is less likely to need planning permission than others, although it is always a good idea to check with your local authority department, which our loft conversion specialists can help you with.

The Cabrio Velux roof window balcony that we can supply and install into loft conversions is an innovative form of rooflight window.

The open-out balcony, installed into a sloping roof, gives you extra headroom, a greater inflow of air and the feel of being outside without having to extend your property.

Mezzanine Balcony
The mezzanine style is an internal installation that will turn your whole loft conversion into a balcony. Our roofing company typically installs mezzanines in larger loft spaces to attain the full effect of the design. The open plan style of a mezzanine creates a great space and, as a balcony fitted by our rooflight installers, you have the air flow of the outdoors, inside.

Planning permission for mezzanine loft conversions varies depending on the project. The property needs to have sufficient structural support and achieve the legal head height requirements set out by your local authority in Sutton.

Adding a mezzanine is an excellent way to optimise natural light through your Velux roof windows, brightening your entire home. 

With a style for every house, balconies are a great way to make the most of loft conversions. They can improve your living environment, as well as bathe your home in natural sunlight. And, of course, there’s nothing better than coming home after a hard day of work knowing you have your own personal relaxation space to enjoy.
