Extra space in an attic, loft area or bonus room on the top level of a home are not always ideal areas for loft conversions due to their sloped roofs. These extra rooms do not provide adequate head room to make them comfortable for conversion to a living space; however, hip-to-gable loft conversions can offer a remedy to that problem while maintaining the structural integrity of the house.
The hip-to-gable loft conversion experts in our database are able to advise homeowners as to whether or not such a conversion is feasible in their attic space. Such a conversion involves swapping the sloped side of the roof for a vertical wall that is fitted to the height of the property. The new wall is fitted into the masonry or studwork of the home's structure. This extends the ridgeline of the home and provides for a nice-sized additional living space. It is not a complicated process for the trained professionals in our database.
Prices can vary greatly depending on the specific structure of the home and difficulty of the conversion job. The size of the space that needs to be converted will also impact the total cost. The loft conversion experts in our network are quick to let homeowners know when a conversion is not possible due to threatening the structural integrity of the home. They are also able to look at a homeowner's budget and explain the level of work that can be done within that budget.

No. This is one conversion that shouldn't be done as a DIY job. This type of conversion entails basically changing the entire contour of the roof to provide more space in the loft. It is a job best left for a professional.
Whenever the attic space underneath a hip roof has low overhead or only a limited amount of space, a hip-to-gable conversion could be needed in order to increase the size of the area or ceiling height.
