Why Consider Adding a Dormer to Your Long Island Home?

A dormer is a projection from the sloped side of an existing roof that brings in natural light, adds extra overhead room, and even expands the square footage of your home. This additional feature provides numerous benefits, including:

  •         Increased living space. Dormers can transform an attic or crawlspace into functional, usable space. Add a built-in bench to the area behind your new dormer to create a reading nook or use the space to create a reading nook or sleeping area. Dormers can add valuable square footage to your home.
  •         More light. A dormer is a great way to add natural light to your home. More sunlight will instantly make your house a cheerful, more welcoming space.
  •         Improved ventilation. With the addition of an operable window, a dormer can improve the ventilation in your home, allowing more fresh air to flow in and warm, stale air flow out.  
  •         Enhanced curb appeal. A dormer can dramatically improve the aesthetic appeal of the exterior of your home by breaking up a monotonous roofline and adding character and charm.

Dormers of All Shapes and Sizes

Dormers are available in a variety of shapes and styles, and at Hugh Bauers Contracting, we have experience designing and installing them all. Some of the most popular styles include:

  •         Gabel. The triangular shape that slopes evenly along the sides of a window, a gable style dormer is simplistic in style and maximizes vertical headroom, making it the most popular of type of dormer.
  •         Hipped. With three roof planes that slope upward and join together at a central point above the peak of the roof, a hipped dormer is another commonly used feature that will add instant drama to your home.
  •         Eyebrow. The gentle curved, wave-like design of an eyebrow dormer creates architectural interest that will be sure to make your home stand out.
  •         Shed. This type of dormer has a lower pitch than the rest of the roof that surrounds it, creating a flat, squared-off space that makes it the ideal solution for adding more square footage to your home.
  •         Bonnet. A curved roof that’s surrounded by vertical walls on either side of a window is the hallmark of a bonnet dormer. Often, arched-topped windows are installed to match the arch-topped style of a bonnet dormer.

Usually, a dormer matches the style of the main roof; however, at Hugh Bauers Contracting, we can design and install any type of dormer to suit your specific needs. When you choose us as your Long Island dormer contractors, you can be sure that you’ll receive an architectural element that will enhance the form and function of your existing home.
