What is a hip to gable attic extension?
Hips are the sides of a roof that tilt down. If your home has a roof with 3 hips then 1 or more than 1 of its hips can be turned outwards and transformed into a gable. This means you gain a vertical wall and more space inside.
A hip to gable extension should only be undertaken by experts who specialise in this type of roof refurbishment.
Detached properties can often have a double hip to gable extension. This gives twice as much extra space.
