Hip to Gable Loft Conversion
One of the any loft conversion services that we provide our customers with in the Leeds, United Kingdom area is a hip to gable loft conversion. Hip to gable conversions may be the most suitable loft conversion for you to decide upon instead of a mansard or dormer loft conversion. While a mansard is designed to add as much space within the loft and extend outwards to create space, a dormer loft conversion is designed in almost an L-shape to both take advantage of what space you may have left, as well as extend beyond to ensure that you can maximise all space that you have.
A hip to gable is designed to maximise the space that you have within your loft without having to extend your loft outwards. This is something that we have completed many times here at Leeds Loft Converters for our customers, and we can ensure that it will be done with as much efficiency and quality as possible while doing so for a low price.
Reasons to get a hip to gable and the cost of a hip to gable conversion?
A hip to gable conversion can be quite beneficial for your home, as it will allow you to maximise the space within your loft and your home altogether without having to extend your home. With an extension, you would be looking to pay much more than a hip to gable loft conversion while basically offering the same service, which is extra living space. The extra living space that would be included within your home will mean that you can change an otherwise unused space within your home into a usable living space for any needs you may have.
You would be able to create a new bedroom or bathroom within your loft to ensure that you can maximise space. You could even create a hobby room that is designed for your hobbies and loves such as a games room or a home cinema. The use of the loft conversion itself is completely up to you, as it mainly becomes about size restrictions and budget restrictions. Since you are simply maximising your space with a hip to gable conversion, you would not be able to extend outward like you would with a mansard or dormer conversion, so if you are looking for an increased amount of space it may be worth considering those instead. A hip to gable will still give you a reasonable amount of space for your needs, and we do believe that it is not necessary to increase your budget and investment if it is not necessary.
Should I get a Hip to Gable conversion?
A hip to gable loft conversion is mainly designed for homes that are detached, as the roofs are slanted outwards. The slant – otherwise known as a hip – takes available space away from your potential loft conversion. What we would do as a conversion is simply straighten the slant out so the top of the roof to the bottom of the home are completely aligned, and board your loft to ensure that it is as safe and secure to use as possible. With this maximised space comes extra space for your conversion, allowing you to place whatever you may want within the loft conversion. This added space will mean you are able to place anything you would like within the loft so that it becomes a comfortable and satisfactory living space for your needs.
The property itself would also benefit from a hip to gable loft conversion, as it means that you are able to turn your loft into whatever room you would like. An additional bathroom, bedroom or even a large hobby room would mean the value of the property itself would significantly increase, so if you decide to sell your home later down the line you would make the money back from the conversion and more. If you plan on living within the home for most of your life, then you would benefit from being able to use the room you otherwise would not have had.
