Many of Wandsworth’s family homes are semis, detached houses or end terraces. These types of properties usually have a hip roof. A hip roof has 3 sides which tilt down. Hip-roofed houses can accommodate an attic extension.

A hip to gable roof refurbishment is the answer to gaining extra space if your home has this type of roof. We are local hip to gable roof extension specialists.

Why choose a hip to gable attic extension?

What appears to be a small loft space has the potential to become a major part of your home. A hip to gable roof refurbishment is the most effective way to add an extra level of living space to hip-roofed properties.

  • Most chalets and bungalows can usually take a hip to gable roof extension.
  • Hip roof
  • Detached property
  • Semi
  • End of terrace
  • Chalet or bungalow

These extensions don’t generally require planning permission.

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.

These extensions should only be undertaken by experts who specialize in this type of roof refurbishment.

Detached properties can often have a double hip to gable extension. This gives twice as much extra space.
