What is a hip to gable loft conversion?

So, first of all, what is this type of loft conversion? Well, a hip to gable loft conversion is a type of conversion that replaces the sloping wall on your roof, with a vertical, gable end wall. This adds head height and space to your loft conversion, making it much more useful. You can even replace two sloping sides, to create a double hip to gable loft conversion.

What type of properties can benefit from a hip to gable loft conversion?

A hip to gable loft conversion can be effective for a range of properties, including:

  • detached and semi detached homes with a hipped roof.
  • bungalows and challets
  • end or terrace houses- mid terraces do not connect to the end of the wall, so these cannot benefit from a hip to gable loft conversion.
