A dormer is generally constructed from timber. The main parts that form a dormer are the roof, side walls (cheeks) and front wall which faces the garden.
The cheeks can be supported in one of two ways:
The rafters can be doubled and bolted together with the cheeks then constructed off the rafters.
If the dormer width means the cheeks are at the edges of the roof then the cheeks can be taken down to the floor and supported off the floor joists (which are doubled) or on a beam, or in some cases by the party or external walls.
We re-furbish existing dormers and construct new dormers
