What is a hip-to-gable loft conversion?
Many properties have a hipped roof, which is essentially a roof with a sloping side in addition to the slopes at the front and back. This can mean that the existing loft space is limited, and it may mean that the only way to convert a loft is to expand your property. A hip-to-gable loft conversion essentially extends your property by replacing the sloping roof with a vertical wall, also known as a gable. This will then give you adequate space to convert your loft and use it as you see fit.
The work will essentially extend the side roof area so that the hipped roof which formerly sloped inwards becomes a vertical wall (turning it into a gable roof), creating extra usable space inside the loft.
With a hip-to-gable loft conversion in Birmingham, it is possible to extend both sloping sides to create a double hip-to-gable loft conversion. If you really want to maximise your space, it may be possible to combine a hip-to-gable conversion with a rear dormer at the back of the roof. Hip to gable loft conversions can also be combined with a rear dormer loft conversion for maximum space all round.
A hip-to-gable conversion is ideal for semi-detached homes, detached properties, bungalows and chalets, however, it is generally not possible on mid-terrace properties, but it may be possible on end of terrace houses. Hip to gable loft conversions in in Birmingham are a particularly good design for 1930’s homes. Due to the nature of this type of loft conversion, it isn’t suitable for mid-terraced houses, as they don’t have a hip end roof, but it could be appropriate for some end-terraced properties, in addition to many bungalows and chalets.
Do you need planning permission for a hip-to-gable loft conversion?
Most hip-to-gable loft conversions in Birmingham are within permitted development rules and do not require full planning permission. It is not usually necessary to get planning permission for a typical hip-to-gable loft conversion as this falls under ‘permitted developments’ allowed by homeowners.
However, if your property is listed or in a conservation area, there may be planning restrictions and you may have to apply for planning permission. Before carrying out any building work, we always recommend that you contact your local authority to check their planning policy requirements, especially if other extensions or improvements have already been added to your property by you or a previous owner.
Once completed, the loft conversion will require building regulations approval. Read our FAQs for more information about the process and requirements related to Birmingham loft conversions with Stourbridge Lofts .
