A hip to gable loft conversion is found on many detached, semi-detached and end of terrace properties. Many homes have a traditional ‘hipped’ roof, where the sides slope in, limiting the head height available. A simple and aesthetically pleasing look, this type of conversion involves removing the sloping side roof from the property and building the side wall up to fill the gap. This is an extremely effective way of increasing the amount of head height within the property and including an extra room.
Which properties work well with a hip to gable conversion?
This type of loft conversion can be fantastic for any property with a hipped roof,
For homes that have two sloping sides, you could also query whether it would be possible to have a double hip to gable, maximising the amount of space available and evening out the appearance of your property.
Will I need planning permission?
Although in many cases, planning permission will not be required thanks to the regulations regarding ‘permitted development’, in some scenarios permission must still be granted. We work closely with each of our clients and strive to make the conversion process as simplistic as possible, taking charge of the application process and making all of the enquiries for you.
