A hip-to-gable loft conversion involves developing the sloping (hipped) roof of a property into a new vertical gable wall. Effectively, this type of loft conversion turns the sloping part of the roof into a vertical wall so that it is the same height as the rest of the roof.
Most properties are built with a sloping side and this limits the space in the attic. By changing the sloping or hipped roof to create a vertical gable end, this creates a larger loft area with significantly more usable floor space.
Most homes, such as detached, semi detached, end of terrace and even bungalows are suitable for hip-to-gable conversions. Due to the nature of this type of conversion, it isn’t suitable for mid-terraced houses, as they don’t have a hip end roof.
