Frequently Asked Questions

What is meant by hip to gable?

A hip to gable loft conversion gives you a much larger living area in the existing loft space. We find a hip-end roof conversion provides enough extra space to accommodate a shower-room and introduce the best staircase positioning, as well as increasing standing space in the loft conversion.

A hip end is the sloping end to a roof. A gable is the triangular section of wall which stands between two sloping roofs. A hip to gable loft extension extends the roof’s ridge line from the existing hips – where the existing upward ridges of the hip end meet the very top of the roof – to the furthest vertical wall.
