Hip to Gable Loft conversion in Egham, Twickenham & Weybridge

As local loft conversion experts in and around Egham, Twickenham, Weybridge and the surrounding area, Highline Design & Build is able to offer customers hip to gable conversions as a means of creating even more loft space in their homes.

Used in houses with spacious lofts that have limited headroom because of the hipped roof, a hip to gable loft conversion creates considerably more space than other options. They’re also popular because they tend to look more natural from the outside than a dormer extension when completed.

Even better is that many conversions of this type won’t need planning permission, but our experienced team has years of experience and will be able to give you all the help and advice you need.

What is a Hip to Gable Loft Conversion? 

A hipped roof is one where all sides slope down from the top. A hip to gable loft is similar in appearance to a dormer conversion from the outside, but differs in that it converts a hipped roof into a vertical gable wall, instead of building out from a pitched roof. 

Because of the nature of a hipped roof, this won’t be a solution that can be applied to a mid terrace property.

How long will my project take?

Each project is different and the size of the build will determine the time it will take to complete; however, an average rear extension/loft conversion will take approximately six weeks from start to finish.

Will I be able to live in my property while the work goes on?

Yes, you will be able to live in the property. If this is the case, we will attempt to leave the breaking through into the house until as late as possible in the project.

Will someone be on site every day?

Yes, we will have someone on site every day. However, the caveat to this is if we are waiting on drying times or materials. That being said, we will endeavour to have a team member/team members present as much as possible to ensure the project is completed in a timely manner.

Will an extension add value to my property?

Absolutely, it is becoming more and more popular to add space to your existing property instead of the hassle and fees involved with moving. Adding additional square meterage can add up to 10-20% onto the market value.

Can you help with plans/designs?

Of course, we can offer suggestions and ideas, and show you previous projects. We can also arrange for you to visit a previous project if required. We have built relationships with trusted architects and can introduce you to our preferred contacts in order to obtain your drawings.

How long does it take to get planning permission?

It will depend upon whether you are applying for permitted planning or full planning permission. Different councils work to different timescales; however, as a guide from submission of plans it will take approximately 8-12 weeks.
