Floating a Frame Over Insulation in a Truss Roof Loft in Rugby

New build houses always have a lot more insulation in the loft as regulations have increased significantly over the years. It is now common to see a minimum of 270mm of insulation in the loft and often we see 400mm. The only way to keep this amount of insulation in place and intact when boarding out a section, is to float a frame over the top. It is very important not to squash down the insulation. You want to allow air to circulate so that moisture can escape.

We floated a timber frame 450mm over the ceiling joists and laid an 18mm tongue & groove chip board floor. 

This floor boarding job was done in a newly built house on Elborow Way, Cawston, Rugby, CV22.

Boarding Out a Loft Around Truss Beams in Welford-on-Avon

This house had an inverted truss roof which made it difficult to use as a storage space because of all the diagonal trusses in the loft. We floated a timber frame 300mm above the exsisting ceiling to allow the insulation to sit without being squashed. Cutting out around all the trusses is a long and slow process but once complete, makes this space very usable.

This was done in a 5 bedroom detached house in Welford-on-Avon, CV37.

Relocating a Loft Hatch and Installing a Timber Bi-Folding Loft Ladder in Sheldon

This man wanted his hatch relocated onto his landing as his current hatch was very small and in his bathroom. Empire Lofts were able to complete this work in a couple of hours with no decorating necessary after the job was complete.

Relocating the hatch hole is often a great idea. In order to safely and easily get up into the loft with bulky items, you will need a good amount of space to access the ladder. Also, the better ladders need swing room and clearance on the landing and in the loft.

This job was done in a 3 bed, semi-detached house on Vibart Road, Sheldon, Birmingham, B26.

Boarding Out a Truss Roof Loft (With Floating Frame to Get Over Insulation) in Wolverhampton

This guy wanted his loft boarded but had a lot of insulation and the roof structure made it difficult for him to move around. We fitted his loft out with a robust floating frame system, allowing the 270mm of insulation underneath it to breath and have air-flow. This is really impotant to reduce the risk of condensation building up in the roof. We also installed a 3 stage Youngman Easy-way loft ladder and UPVC hatch for easy access. 

This job was completed in a newly built, 3 story town house on Greenock Crescent, Wolverhampton, WV4.
