Hipped Roof Loft Conversion

Hipped roofs with inward slopes at both ends can offer extra living space through developments such as hip to gable conversions.

A hipped roof can really benefit the property value and those using or living within it. The different types of hipped roofs include the most common and simple type of hipped roof, cross hipped roofs which are similar to a cross gable using separate hip roofs on homes which have different wings and a half hipped roof with two sides shortened to create eaves.

Hipped roofs are particularly suited and good for areas of turbulent weather such as strong winds and snowy areas allowing for water and residue to slide off of the roof at ease. Hipped roofs can increase the potential space for properties with a vaulted ceiling or an attic and should be a definite development consideration.

  • Hipped roofs are excellent to transform an attic or vaulted ceiling
  • Hipped roofs with pitches between 33°- 50° angles are recommended for properties within areas prone to high wind, heavy rain or snow
  • Hipped roofs are more expensive to build than a gable roof as the design plans and structural considerations are more complex and material requirement is greater
  • The roofing system installed should consider the quantity and quality of additional seams to prevent leakage and subsequent damage
