Boarding Out Loft, Adding a Balustrade Rail and Fitting Loft Ladder in Selly Oak

Here is a great example of:

  • Boarding out a loft with 18mm P5 moisture resistant tongue & groove boards.

  • Boarding out using loft legs.

  • Adding safety balustrade rail

  • fitting 3 section aluminium loft ladder

  • fitting upvc hatch

In a new build, 2 bed, terrace house.

This job was a great example of the use of loft legs. Because the house was a new build with 270mm of insulation we put forward the idea of the loft leg system to board out a section of his loft. These loft legs allow you to board out a loft with minimal disturbance to the insulation. This is done by fixing down light weight plastic stilt legs to create a raise platform above the insulation. The owner also wanted a balustrade rail added as a safety feature.

Bespoke Hatch and Loft Ladder Fitted in Tamworth, Birmingham

Here is a great example of:

  • fitting a custom hatch in between narrow joists
  • extending hatch aperture to gain better access
  • longer hatch to accommodate ladder
  • fitting a 3 stage aluminium loft ladder 

In a 1980's, 3 bed, semi-detached house on Hornbeam Road, Tamworth, Birmingham.

The owner of this property had a truss roof and did not want to cut out and brace the ceiling timbers. Instead they wanted a custom hatch built to fit in between. Because the joists were only 460mm apart there was not much room to get up though the hatch into the loft with suitcases. For this reason they asked for the hatch to be extended in length to accommodate them and a suitcase when climbing up though the hatch. We built them a custom hatch 460mm/1000mm and dissolved the architrave into the wall in order maximise the available width.

Loft Ladder in Coleshill, Birmingham

Here is a great example of:

  • Enlarging a loft aperture, 
  • Installing a larger, custom built loft hatch,
  • Installing a 3 stage loft ladder

In a 1990's, 3 bed, detached house in Kendal Avenue, Coleshill, Birmingham.

This was a straight forward job of pushing back a cross beam (noggin) to square up the aperture. This was done in order to make the loft hatch wider so I could accommodate a 3 stage loft ladder at 90 degrees to the stairs. It's really important to widen out the hatch to allow yourself plenty of room for you and your belongings to easily fit though the loft opening- safely and securely.

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.
