Dust Free Roof Membrane in Knowle

After boarding out this loft, the owners wanted us to stop all the tile mortar and dust from falling onto their belongings. We pinned a breathable roof membrane to the inside of their roof. This is a good solution to reduce dust and debris in the loft when plaster boarding is not an option. 

This was done in a 3 bedroom, 1930s, semi detached house on Milverton Road, Knowle, B93.

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.

Fitting a Heavy Duty (Titan) Loft Ladder in Moseley

This was a great example of a loft ladder we fitted into a house where they had no option of increasing the size of their loft hatch without major construction work, so we fitted a heavy duty titan loft ladder into the existing, very slim loft hatch. 

We fitted this in a 3 story 1900's town house, mid terrace on Runcorn road, Moseley, B12.

Installing a Four Section Bi-Folding Loft Ladder in Hall Green

This job was to install a 4 section wooden loft ladder in a semi-detached house on Cole Bank Road, Hall Green, Birmingham.

There are two main reasons why you might need to install a 4 section bi-folding loft ladder instead of the standard 3 section version.

1. The landing space has restricted room; a 3 section bi-foldong loft ladder needs 160cm of clearance from the back edge of the hatch in order for the ladder to unfold. If this space is smaller, say by an internal wall of balustrade, then the ladder isn't able to be unfolded. The 4 section version only requires 128cm to unfold and so can be the solution to this problem.

2. The hatch external dimensions are restricted: sometimes ladder clearance is not the issue but the hatch dimensions are. It can be the case where the hatch can not be extended to 109cm in length to accommodate the size of a 3 section loft ladder. This may be because of internal walls or pipes. In this case often it is possible to fit the 4 section ladder because it is a slightly more compact ladder assemble. It's hatch external dimensions be slightly smaller in length at 92cm. 

In this case it was the second reason for choosing the 4 section ladder.

Timber Loft Ladder Installation in Solihull, Birmingham

This is another great example of a wooden loft ladder being fitting in a modern house:

  • Widening / cutting out the plaster board ceiling 
  • Fitting a timber bi-folding loft ladder 

in a 5 bed, detached house with a truss roof, built in 1995 on Monkspath Hall Road, Solihull, Birmingham

This was the perfect solution for this family. They wanted a ladder the was really simple to use, lightweight with big, flat, sturdy footsteps. The ladder had to be easy to lower and stow away, feel safe and strong as they wanted to feel comfortable using it regularly. Fakro's LWK bi-folding timber loft ladder with the extra large opening 60cm/120cm was ideal for their usage.

Building a Small Storage/Cinema Room, Hall Green, Birmingham

This was a small loft room project, a perfect example of:

  • Loft boarding
  • Insulation fitting
  • Roof window installation
  • Timber bi-folding loft ladder

in a 1950's, 3 bed, semi-detached house: Highfield Road, Hall Green, Birmingham.

This was the perfect little cubby hole space to turn into a "man cave" / cinema room. We boarded out this space and skimmed it to create a great area to retreat to after a long day. We added a window for ventilation and some natural light, but installed black out blinds that are necessary for that pitch black cinema experience. We insulated the entire room with 50mm extratherm boards to help keep it warm in winter and cool in the summer.

Loft Boarding, Raised Floor, Boarding Over Pipes in Warwick

This boarding job was a great example of how you can board out your loft around and over pipes safely:

  • Boarding out a loft with 18mm P5 moister resistant tongue & groove boards
  • Raising the floor level to accommodate water pipes
  • Raising loft floor level 200mm to accommodate insulation
  • Installing a UPVC loft hatch
  • Fitting a 3 stage aluminium loft ladder

in a 3 bed, semi-detached house on Claypitts Boulevard, Warwick

The couple that owned this property were concerned that they wouldn't be able to use there loft space as there were water pipes running across the ceiling level, We demonstrated how it was possible to raise the level of the loft floor to cover over the pipes safely, including leaving access points at stop taps. We also removed the tongue and groove system from every third board for quick access to any part of there loft, instead of having to pick up the entire floor in the case of an emergency which require access to the pipes. All of our boards are screwed down into place to ensure they are easy to bring back up again if needs be
