Hip to Gable – Preserve the Look and Style of Your Home
Hip to gable loft conversions are proving increasingly popular with our customers. Perfect for maintaining the structural and aesthetic integrity of your home, a hip to gable loft extension could be an ideal solution if you need to create extra living space.
What is a hip to gable loft conversion?
Most properties have a “hipped” roof, with a sloping side, so loft space is limited. Converting the loft could be tricky and expensive without undertaking considerable work. A “hip to gable” loft conversion is the answer.
Your roof’s sloping side is swapped for a wall that fits vertically to the full height of your property, thus extending the ridge line of your home; the “gap” that’s left is in effect filled with your new loft space and living area.
If your property has two sloping sides, they can be easily replaced with two vertical walls; this double hip to gable loft conversion provides you with even more space – ideal for a growing family, office space or a new master bedroom.
Is a hip to gable loft extension suitable for my property?
It could well be. Is your property detached or semi-detached or do you live in a bungalow? We’d be delighted to take you through the options.
You’ll need to consider the height of the roof between the top ridge and the joists of the ceiling below to allow the creation of sufficient living space. We’d be delighted to take you through the options so give us a call to find out more.
Do I need planning permission?
New regulations introduced in 2008 have enabled home owners to conduct a small amount of development work to their homes without planning permission. These new laws have reduced costs and speeded up the process. However, if your loft conversion does require planning permission – and we’ll know when we visit you – we’ll take care of all the paper work for you.
