Hip to Gable Loft Conversion
An increasingly common choice for many semi-detached or detached homes is a hip-to-gable loft conversion. This type of loft conversion involves extending your property by replacing a sloping roof with a vertical wall, known as a gable. If you want to maximise your space to your property’s full potential, a double hip-to-gable conversion involves extending both sides of the roof. This conversion type is ideal for semi-detached homes, detached residences, bungalows, and chalets.
The hip-like shape of a hip roof is created by the sloping sides coming together at the ridge. Compared to a gable roof, the roof is more sturdy and wind-resistant because to its four sloping sides. Though they need more work to construct than gable roofs, hip roofs offer more useable attic space.
Two sloping sides that come together to form a triangle at the roof’s ridge define a gable roof. Compared to a hip roof, this kind of roof is easier to build and offers more attic space.
