Is your Clapham home a detached house, a semi-detached or an end terrace? If so you may be under the impression that your house can’t have a loft conversion. Wrong.
Most detached, semis and end terrace houses have hip roofs. A hip roof consists of three downward sloping sides. Many people believe that properties with hip roofs can’t accommodate a roof extension. A hip-to-gable attic refurbishment is the perfect solution for properties with hip roofs. It enables you to utilise wasted attic space.
Most chalets can also gain extra living space with a hip-to-gable roof refurbishment. Bungalows can acquire an upstairs too.

What is a hip-to-gable extension?
A hip roof has 3 sloping sides. These downward sloping sides are called hips. In a hip-to-gable roof refurbishment one (or more) of these sloping sides is transformed into a vertical wall better known as a gable. In a hip-to-gable roof refurbishment we literally replace one of your roof’s slanting sides with a straight wall.
Detached houses can usually accommodate double hip-to-gable extensions. To construct a double hip-to-gable; we replace two of your roof’s sloping sides with straight walls (gables). You gain double the space and benefits.
