What is a dormer?

A dormer is a roofed structure, often containing a window, that projects vertically beyond the plane of a pitched roof.[1] It is also known as rooftop window. Roof dormers come in a variety of different shapes and sizes but most serve the same function: to increase the useable ‘liveable’ area in an attic space or spare room. A dormer raises the ceiling height on a sloped roof to a height required by code this effectively increases the square footage of your home.

Why You Should Install A Roof Dormer:

Like stated earlier dormers effectively increase the livable square footage of your home. A recent study from THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® shows that for every 1000 square feet you add to your home, you typically increase its value by 3.3%. For a $200,000 home, that adds up to almost $7,000. As you can see, simply adding a dormer to a useable space can drastically increase the sell value of your home, not to mention the added benefits of adding windows to your home.
