It is a common misconception that truss rafter roofs are not suitable for loft conversions.
In fact, there is no reason whatsoever why houses built this way cannot be converted into that new loft conversion you have always wanted.
Generally speaking, properties built since the mid-1960s will use truss rafters, though very modern houses may have steel trusses.
Take a peek in your loft and if you see that the roof timbers form into a 'W' shape, then your property has a trussed roof. Other things to look for are a very shallow pitch to the sides of the roof and metal plates connecting the timbers. The illustration below should give you a further idea of what to look for.
