If you live in a semi-detached or end of terrace house, your loft is ideal for a conversion. In these types of homes, it’s easy to add a great deal more space through a simple design and build process, so you can get more out of your property. The loft has enormous potential and an experienced conversion company like us can help you transform it.
What types of loft conversions are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes?
There are two main types of loft conversion that are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes: hip to gable loft conversions and dormer loft conversions. The type we build will depend on your existing roof and side wall. If the roof is sloped or hipped, then a hip to gable loft conversion would be the ideal type. If you already have a gable, we will build a dormer loft conversion.

Hip to gable loft conversions
Hip to gable loft conversions transform sloping hipped roofs into gabled roofs, allowing a loft conversion to be built with good headroom. The ridge is extended to meet the gable end, and the loft room is built inside the newly created space. This type of loft conversion is most often carried out on 1930s semi-detached and end of terrace homes.
The average cost of a hip to gable loft conversion is £40,000-£50,000.
Dormer loft conversions
Dormer loft conversions are created with a dormer, which is added onto the roof. The walls are at a 90° angle to the floor, giving very good headroom inside, despite the roof pitch. If you have a semi-detached or end of terrace home, a dormer will most likely be built to the front or back of the property – or both if you want more space.
The average cost of a dormer loft conversion is £35,000-£55,000.
