A roof extension is an excellent way of creating new space. It allows you to add height and character to your home, and gives you several options depending on your specific needs. If you’re looking for roof extension ideas, take a look at all the roof extension services we offer below. Alternatively, if you already know what you want, get in touch with a local Refresh Renovations roof extension consultant.
Many modern homes have relatively low pitch hipped roofs which do not leave much room for a loft or storage. Here, Refresh can help you either build a loft extension within the existing roof space, or completely remove the existing roof and replace it with a new first floor, depending on your wants and needs.
A hip roof often has several pitched sides extending down from a ridge at the apex. Hipped roofs are extremely sturdy and reliable, and tend to keep you shaded from the summer heat. Refresh can help you design and build a hipped roof extension. Simply get in touch to get started.

In a gable end roof extension, you add both a new roof as well as a first-floor extension. Here, the pitch is higher and the hips are changed to gable ends which creates a great deal of new floor area upstairs. This extension is also extremely aesthetically pleasing.
Another way to create additional space is by simply reconfiguring your existing roof design. Our expert renovation designers and builders can take care of every step of your roof reconfiguration to your unique specifications.

Dormers can easily blend in with your home’s existing design and can significantly increase the available floor area of your home. Reach out to a renovations specialist today to discuss if a gable end dormer is the ideal solution for your roof extension.
You can create additional space upstairs by extending the first floor of your home over the ground floor. Refresh can help you achieve this by extending the first floor beyond the existing external wall, creating a covered patio and entrance porch which significantly increases the floor area of the room above.
A pitched roof allows you extra height without appearing boxy or imposing. It can be designed to match the existing aesthetic of your house, while transforming it from its previous look. These angled ceilings can create space for attractive fresh windows and additional glazing as well.
If your goal is to create contrast with your room, instead of trying to blend the extension with the rest of your home, our Refresh renovation specialists can help you achieve your desired look.
Flat roofs do not have to be completely horizontal and can be at any incline you choose. They are easy to install and provide additional functionality such as the ability to add solar panels or air conditioning on your roof. Some homeowners even choose to create an additional living space up there! Refresh can help you create the ideal flat roof to match your wants and needs.
A skillion roof has a single sharp incline that is often added over porches and sheds. It is extremely popular in the modern architectural landscape as they are cost effective and relatively easy to construct, while allowing for water run-off and giving you space for adding skylights or additional storage solutions in the attic. Our Refresh renovation specialists can work with you to ensure we create a roof that achieves your desired result.
Built from an expanse of glass, glazed roofs are an excellent way of flooding your extension with natural light and create a sun-room type space. These sections can be used for a second kitchen, studio, or even a home office.
Although a gambrel style roof is most commonly associated with barns, they are also used in residential constructions when homeowners want to create an abundance of space in their attic. The amount of space provided here can allow you to create an extra bedroom or living area!
If you are looking to create an architectural beauty of a home, one of the ways to do so is by a pair of twin gables on either side of your home. This can help you create enough space for a new floor while helping your home’s street appeal.
Perhaps the most modern roof design of them all is the green roof, which allows homeowners to create a garden on their roof. Valued for being environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing, green roofs are becoming an increasingly popular choice among homeowners that are looking to stand out.
