Hip to Gable

Best for semi-detached and detached houses that have hipped roofs. The hip to gable loft conversion is most suitable for roofs having more than two slopes. It offers a more realistic solution for lofts having space constraint.

The conversion process features an efficient swapping the sloping roof with a flat gable wall that is perpendicular to the property’s overall height and an extension of the hipped roof’s ridge. This creates more space complemented with a staircase. It is the conversion blends with all aspects of the building.


The most versatile loft conversion that can be executed on most property styles such as semi-detached, detached, terraced houses and more. It features an extension of the existing roof with interiors consisting of vertical walls and horizontal ceiling. A dormer conversion usually projects out from the property’s roofline.

How Loft Conversions Are Carried Out

Essex loft conversions are an effective way to increase the usable space in your home and enhance your property’s value. It is one of the best home improvement projects that offer a significant return on investment whenever the property is offered for sale.

We are Essex Builders offering Essex loft conversions to homeowners in Essex and other surrounding areas. Carrying out loft conversions involves several processes and here are some of the processes involved.

Measurement of the Head Height

The lowest height required for loft conversions is 2.2m. Use a tape to measure the height of your loft from the ceiling at the highest point of the room to the floor to know if there is an adequate head height.

Check Your Type of Roof

Based on when your house was constructed, your roof will be either a roof rafter or truss. A rafter runs along the roof’s edge and leaves most of the triangular space under hollow while a truss runs through the cross-section of the loft. Lot conversions of roofs with trusses will require extra support to change the trusses and be more expensive.

Check the Floor Below

The floor under the loft should be considered in your conversion planning, especially where the stairs will go and the space it will takes up. This is necessary as the stairs can cover a large area of a room; so, you know what to expect.
