What is a hip to gable loft conversion?

A hip to Gable loft conversion is a type of loft conversion that replaces a sloping wall at the end or side of your roof with a vertical gable end wall. You can even consider replacing both of the sloping roof walls with vertical gable end walls to make a double hip to gable loft conversion. This type of loft conversion can be a great fit for bungalows and detached or semi-detached homes with a hipped roof. End of terraced houses can also make use of this type of loft conversion, although mid terraces cannot.

What are the advantages of a hip to gable loft conversion? 

There are a number of advantages and benefits to choosing a hip to Gable loft conversion. These advantages include:

  • Increasing the head height of the loft conversion
  • A 6-week installation time

A hip to gable loft conversion can offer increased head height

By changing the sloping roof wall to a vertical gable end wall, this adds a significant amount of head height to the room. In fact, with this type of loft conversion, the loft should have the same height as any other room in your home, instead of being smaller and more cramped. This increased head height allows the loft conversion to be used practically for more purposes including bedrooms and living spaces, because there is more usable room available.

A hip to gable loft conversion generally has a 6-week installation time

It won’t take too long to get your loft conversion up and running with a hip to gable loft conversion. In general, these take about 5 to 6 weeks to complete in full, and this is a very good time scale for a home extension that can add value and usable space to your property.
