The Pitched–hip roof extension is probably the most typical type of extension to a property where the space incorporates a side return or side access and across the rear. The shape is looked at favourably by the council due to its potential to have a reduced side wall height. This is then able to vault up to the pitched roof.
This design offers an alternative feel to the internal space. Unlike every other room in the house which has a flat ceiling, the pitched-hip roof allows interesting angles to the space and this can help to create more of an atmosphere.
Whilst the pitched-hip roof is typically used for a more classic design i.e. matching brickwork and roof tiles but with modern doors, it can also look spectacular when dressed up in a modern style as shown below. Here we have used predominantly glass to achieve this however it is also possible to use other materials such as zinc, cladding or render to obtain a similar feel.
Using period doors and windows helps transforms the extension into an elegant traditional spectacle. Beautiful doors and windows as shown below have been carefully constructed by our joiners using hard wood and incorporating high quality chrome fittings.
