What Is a Hip to Gable Loft Conversion?
Hip to gable loft conversions are an ideal solution to hipped roofs which have a sloping side as well as sloping front and back. These can often make loft space limited and squashed, making it difficult to create a viable living space.
A hip to gable loft conversion solves this issue by replacing the sloping side with a vertical wall, extending the roof and making more space to convert your loft space into a spacious room that can be used as an office, bedroom, playroom, studio or whatever you envision!
It is suitable for homes that are detached, semi-detached or bungalows, generally they are not really viable for terraced houses, especially mid terrace, but can occasionally work on end terrace houses.
What Are The Different Types of Hip to Gable Loft Conversions?
With a hip to gable loft conversion, you can either transform one side, or both sides to extend the loft space. Generally if you have a detached house, it’s generally advised to convert both sides of the roof to create a large space and create a uniform look for your home.
A hip to gable conversion can also be combined with a dormer loft conversion to maximise the very most of the space, even creating multiple rooms. We’re happy to advise and show you ideas and past work to see what we can achieve.
