Another advantage of loft conversions is the option of adding windows to the roof of a house. Most simply a window can be fitted in to the grain of the roof leaving minimal disruption to the structure of the roof and house, and it is usually relatively easy to obtain permission for this. Although usually no planning permission is needed, there must be checks with building regulations in the specific region of the house.

Alternatively there is the option for a dormer conversion, a window featured extension of the roof. This can give more headroom and space in a loft, but also is used as a way of changing the aesthetic of a house.
