A hip-to-gable loft conversion involves replacing an existing roof hip with a gable end wall. The hip in question is the sloping side of the roof, thus called the “hipped” side. By changing the hip to a gable, it allows you to achieve a considerable amount of extra space in your loft compared to converting your loft with the hip still in place.

Where a property has a hipped or sloping roof on the side, we can remove the roof and build a gable end in brickwork or block work to match the existing property.

This kind of loft conversion requires altering the external form of the roof and, as such, the householder would need to apply for planning permission before going ahead with this type of project.

Benefits

 This significantly increases the size and usable volume of a loft conversion and a rear dormer is usually included to maximise the room size.
