What is a hip-to gable loft conversion?
Many local homes including; end terraces, semi detached and detached houses have hip roofs. A hip-to-gable attic extension is the best way of transforming a hip roof into more useful rooms.
A hip roof has three downward slanting surfaces. Each slanted side is a hip. A hip-to-gable attic extension is the home expansion solution for houses that have hip roofs.
During a hip-to-gable roof refurbishment one (or maybe more) of the sloping roof surfaces is changed into a gable (a straight wall). Basically a slanted roof surface becomes a vertical wall. Replacing a roof’s slanting surface with a wall creates a large amount of comfortable space suitable for extra living accommodation.
Is a hip-to-gable conversion right for your home?
If your family is outgrowing your home an attic extension is the perfect solution. A hip-to-gable will create the extra space your family needs and increase the value of your home. A loft conversion adds around 20% to the selling price of your property.
Need some extra Income? Transforming wasted roof space into a bedsit or studio flat means you could receive around £1000 every month in rent. Many local home owners are already renting out their extra space on websites such as airbnb.com.
