What is a hip-to gable attic extension?
Many Wimbledon homes including; end terraces, semi detached and detached houses have hip roofs. A hip-to-gable attic expansion is the best way of transforming a hip roof into useful rooms.
A hip roof has three downward slanting surfaces. Each slanted side is a hip. A hip-to-gable attic extension is the home expansion solution for properties with hip roofs.
During a hip-to-gable roof refurbishment one (or maybe more than one) of the sloping roof surfaces is transformed into a gable (a straight wall). Basically a slanted roof surface becomes a vertical wall. Replacing a roof’s slanting surface with a wall creates a vast amount of comfortable space suitable for extra living accommodation.
Is a hip-to-gable extension right for your Wimbledon home?
If your family is outgrowing your home an attic extension is the perfect solution. A hip-to-gable will create the extra space your family needs and increase the value of your house. An attic extension adds around 20% to the selling price of a Wimbledon property.
