A hip to gable loft conversion involves making fairly major changes to the roof. The gable wall is built up to the ridge line and a new section of roof is built to fill in the gap.

As a general rule, houses with hip roofs tend not to have enough internal volume for a conversion to be practical, making a hip to gable conversion the best solution.

A new gable wall will be built either in masonry or studwork and most people prefer the finish to match their existing walls. There are several options for the finishing the masonry gable wall, including brickwork and render or tiled block work. A gable wall built from studwork is normally finished in render or tiled.

As a hip to gable conversion changes the outline of the roof, planning permission may be required and you will also need to determine if the conversion falls within your permitted development allowance. Once the roof has been extended, the conversion is normally completed with either velux roof lights or a dormer.
