If you want a loft conversion but your attic space is limited by a hip-ended roofline, then a hip to gable loft conversion is the answer. By changing the sloping or ‘hipped’ roof to create a vertical gable end you will have a much bigger loft room with significantly more usable floor space. A rear dormer can also be added to your property to give you an even larger usable space.

The building work will involve removing the roof and then building a gable end in brickwork or block work to match your property and create an attractive finish. If a hip to gable loft conversion is not practical then we can advise you on an alternative hip-end dormer.

Maximise loft space to create another storey for your home

Thanks to the windows and additional head height created by a hip to gable loft conversion you will have plenty of room so you can move around easily. These conversions are extremely versatile and work well as bedrooms, a home study or even play room. You can also create an additional bathroom.

Straight-forward advice on planning permission

Since new regulations were introduced in 2008, many Local Authorities allow hip to gable loft conversions to be carried out without planning permission providing the design is within guidelines. This has reduced the cost and speeded up the process. But if your conversion design does require a planning application then INFINITII LOFTS will submit all relevant paperwork.
