London lofts have constructed thousands of hip-to-gable attic extensions. We carried out our first hip-to-gable in Wandsworth in 1991. Since then we have transformed the homes and improved the lives of families Londonwide.

A hip-to gable is the roof expansion solution for London homes that have awkward roofs. Hip roofed properties gain extra space through this type of roof refurbishment.

Benefits of a hip-to-gable attic expansion

  • Extra space for your family
  • Increases the value of your home
  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Planning permission not usually necessary

A hip-to-gable-described

Many London properties have a hip roof. Hips are sloping roof surfaces. A hip roof has three sloping surfaces. This type of roof is considered difficult to extend.

One of a hip roof’s slopes is replaced with a gable (wall) during a hip-to-gable attic extension. A vast amount of extra space is created by replacing the hip with a vertical wall.

We are also London’s experts in double hip-to-gable extensions. These create twice as much space.

A hip-to-gable extension is specialised work which requires a high degree of competence. We embrace the challenges of a hip-to-gable roof refurbishment.
