What’s a hip-to-gable roof refurbishment?

Chiswick homes often have what are called hip roofs. A hip roof is a roof with three sides that slant down. Each of these slanted surfaces is a hip.

Hip roofs are considered difficult to expand. Chiswick Lofts have carried out hundreds of refurbishments on difficult roofs. We enjoy overcoming the challenges posed by hip roofs.

We transform one of a hip roofs slanted sides into a wall. This type of wall is commonly known as a gable. By replacing a hip with a wall, a substantial amount of new space is created. It is also possible to transform more than one hip to a gable.

Most hip-to-gable roof refurbishments do not require planning permission

Why we recommend a hip-to-gable

No matter how spacious you Chiswick home is, a growing family will fill it. Kids are staying at home longer and maybe you will have to accommodate aging parents too.

Detached houses, Edwardian semis and Victorian terraced homes can be made bigger through a hip-to-gable extension. You gain the extra space your family needs without giving up your garden.

We can construct double hip-to-gable extensions on most detached homes giving you double the space.
