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.

Fakro Window Replacement in 1900's Period Barn Conversion Near Stratford-Upon-Avon

Fakro replacement roof windows in a barn conversion 

  • fitting a Fakro roof window
  • 550mm/980mm 
  • Centre pivot natural pine roof window

in a 1900's period barn conversion in Aston Cantlow, Stratford Upon Avon . 

We fitted two replacement Fakro roof windows into an old barn conversion. this was not a very easy task as the old windows were and old discontinued rood window brand with imperial measurements, meant nothing was quiet the right size. This also was not made easy by the small terracotta roof tiles that were extremely fragile and had been cemented in place. This is highly unrecommended. Cementing in roof windows to prevent leakage can actually end up becoming the lead cause of leaking windows. These windows took a lot of time and patients removing the old tiles without breaking them and customising the window size to work correctly with the modern flashing system. However we completed the jobs and the end results was worth he wait. they windows looked like they had always been there wind no damage to the roof.

Installing a Timber Loft Ladder, Widening Out the Aperture, Patching Ceiling Hole in Coventry

Here is a great example of:

In a 1970's period, 3 bed, semi-detached house.

This job was a classic example of fitting a larger loft ladder into a small space. The original hatch was only 65cm/65cm which is a perfectly decent width but not an ideal length. These guys wanted a large, comfy, easy to use, everyday ladder. So we settled on the LWK from Fakro. This ladder gives you plenty of room to walk up though the hatch with big items. Thanks to the design of its large flat foot steps and sturdy side rail, it makes it very easy to climb whilst holding onto your belongings. On this job we increased the length of the hatch by nearly double but reduced the width slightly. This meant that there was a hole left. In this case we patched the hole in the ceiling with an off cut of plaster board ready for decoration.
