Hip To Gable Loft Conversions Dorset by Dorset Loft Conversion

LOFT CONVERSION TYPES

GABLE END LOFT CONVERSIONS

Gable end loft conversions (also known as hip-to-gable loft conversions) are suitable for homeowners whose properties feature a ‘hipped’ roof. In other words, your home’s roof has three or four sloping sides. Hipped roofs are commonly seen on many semi-detached, end-of-terrace and detached properties. Gable end loft conversion Dorset may also be suitable for chalets and bungalows. Contact us and we will be able to tell you if your bungalow or chalet can support a gable end loft conversion.

A gable end loft conversion takes advantage of the third (and/or fourth) sloping roof surface by replacing the sloped surface with a vertical one. This increases the amount of roof space you then have available. A simple change in your roofline can drastically increase the amount of space you can use. The extra space can be used as an additional lounge space, an enviably large bedroom, an office space or spacious play area.

If your home has two sloping sides then both can be extended with a vertical wall replacement to form a double gable end loft conversion. Obviously, this gives you even more space to play with!

Most gable end loft conversions fall within permitted development rights, which means you won’t need to seek planning permission to do this kind of alteration to your home. In some cases (where you have already extended your home through permitted development) you may need to check with your Local Authority about the loft conversion. If you suspect this might be the case for you, contact us and we’ll be able to advise you further.

Gable end loft conversions do require more construction work than a mansard, Velux or dormer loft conversion. However, the vast increase in space with a gable end loft conversion is well worth the time and effort!
