Trafford Hip to Gable Loft Conversions
While it is not the most common or requested loft conversion services within the Trafford area, we at Manchester Loft Converters believe that hip to gable loft conversions are extremely suitable for homes within the Trafford area. Since the shape and construction of many homes in the Trafford area are relatively slanted from the connection to the roof, a hip to gable loft conversion is very suitable for these homes to maximise as much loft space as possible without compromising on the project that you would like completed. Since the average Trafford home itself is also relatively large, there is a decent amount of loft space that is already featured within the property itself. On average, I believe every Trafford home has the loft space for a hip to gable to create 2 – 3 different rooms depending on what your needs are and what you would like to do with the rooms themselves.
Here at Manchester Loft Converters, we have completed a few different hip to gable loft conversions within Trafford this year alone. We find that the customers who are looking for a bedroom and bathroom combination set from their loft conversion benefit most using a hip to gable loft conversion in Trafford. Due to the average size of the loft within each home, it should provide enough space for a large bedroom along with the bathroom also. The average hip to gable loft conversion that we have completed within Trafford have generally been of the same price range and average price, and taking relatively the same amount of time to complete. We wanted to give our customers some more information regarding the average costs and timescales for our customers in Trafford too so they know what they should be looking at roughly.
How much does a hip to gable loft conversion cost in Trafford?
The average cost of a hip to gable within the Trafford area can be anywhere from £16,000 - £25,000, however we have found that the average cost of the hip to gable loft conversion itself in Trafford is £19,000. The more expensive hip to gable loft conversions have been because of the specifications of the loft conversion itself. Some customers often get specific fixtures or additions installed within the loft itself along within the loft conversion due to personal preference such as fish tanks of a larger nature of home cinemas, which require additional construction work to be completed correctly. With the lower costing loft conversion prices, this is often because they wanted the absolute basics to be completed within their loft, and the loft itself was relatively small, being able to only fit one or possibly 2 rooms within the conversion itself. I would also not use these average prices as a specific example of what you should be paying for your conversion too.
How long does a hip to gable loft conversion take in Trafford?
The average time scale of a hip to gable loft conversion within the Trafford area is relatively reasonable. The average hip to gable loft conversion in Trafford could take anywhere between 3 – 6 weeks from the start of construction to finish, with the average loft conversion taking 4 ½ weeks to complete in Trafford. This is a reasonable completion rate when compared to the city of Manchester and the United Kingdom. The overall timescale of the project can fluctuate depending on how far your location is compared to us and our employees also. If you are further than we would expect, then the actual process itself may take a few extra days to complete as we would have to miss a few hours here and there compared to a project that was in a closer location. However, this would be a rarity and should not be considered as a common occurrence.

Manchester Hip to Gable Loft Conversion
Recently we completed a hip to gable loft conversion in the city of Manchester that was entirely dedicated to hobbies. If you’ve looked through our services or our website then you would notice that this is something we often complete, but this conversion was cool and enjoyable to take part in as a loft conversion company and we would love to follow something like this again. The loft itself was to be used as a giant games room that was roughly the size of a standard Manchester living room. While we will get into the specifics of the project and the room itself, I would have to say that as a loft conversion, Manchester needs to construct more rooms that are entirely devoted to the home owner rather than to just raise the price of a home.
The Loft Conversion itself
The loft itself was a standard one room loft that was relatively big, but we cut the rooms design into two sections. The first section was the video game section while the second was board, card and arcade games. The video game side was specific to console games and a gaming computer, while the other side was anything that was related to either physical games or more old-fashioned games. I thought that this was a relatively diverse design in the loft itself, and the usability of the room is very high if these types of things pique your interest. Both sides of the room had cool features that I thought were a lot of fun and really entertaining, and it almost made me feel that I should do it with my own home so I can experience the same type of room!
The video game side of the loft conversion was pretty more towards what I would enjoy. Being a hip to gable loft conversion, there wasn’t need to extend the loft in any way like a dormer or mansard conversion. Luckily, the overall design of the loft was more than realistic to follow and considering only a few select items filled a larger amount of space within the loft conversion, it was easy to re-position the larger items to ensure that they didn’t cut off space. It also meant that since most items didn’t take up a lot of floor space, we didn’t have to partition the loft in any way to cut off each side of the room. We could seamlessly contrast the two sides of the room using different carpentry, wallpaper and overall design.
The video game side of the loft I was more jealous of. The actual setup had a large 65” 4K television mounted to the wall that looked like the size of me connected to multiple videogame consoles. That alone was impressive when you think of how large the TV is in a practical sense. What made it even better was the large couch we also placed in front with a coffee table or food and drinks. We added a few similar armchairs to the sides of the couch and placed a minibar to the corner of the room for any beverages. The idea of making the video game side so large was so the homeowner can play video games with any friends and visitors of the home. Having a whole room that is comfortable and designed for video games would make the experience better too! On the right of the video game consoles and parallel to the mini bar was also the gaming computer. I don’t know much about the specs, but for Manchester I do know that it is above average price. We just made sure that the finishing touches of this side of the room was video-game related on the walls and decoration.
The other half of the room featured items such as a snooker table, air hockey table and a chess board table. This was still a very interesting and enjoyable side of the room, with a dart table also being placed on the wall next to the door. The other interesting thing we made sure when performing the loft conversion is to leave enough creative space for the wall. With the video-game side there was decorations, but unfortunately, we hadn’t been supplied for the decorations on the other side.
