Hip to gable loft conversions help create more space from thin air by extending the roof outwards. This is a popular type of loft conversion for terraced, detached and semi-detached properties, where it can create lots of additional, usable space.
This type of conversion requires the builder to remove the hipped part of the roof at the early stages of the process. A hip roof is a roof with a sloping side (the hip) in addition to the slopes at the front and back of the property, so adding a vertical upright wall (the gable). The roof is extended from the existing ridge, filling in the gap between them. This turns the hip into a gable to form space for a loft conversion.
Benefits of Hip to Gable Conversion
Perfection from start to finish
The primary advantage of a hip-to-gable conversion is the extra space that it creates. As the hip to gable conversion adds extra headroom, opportunities for larger furniture and a better floor layout for you. For those who have a terraced, semi-detached or detached property with a slioping roof and need extra space, a hip to gable loft conversion will be perfect for you.
Hip to gable work can also help to extend an existing loft conversion, adding a small office to a bedroom or a leisure area to relax within.
