Custom Built Hatch, Fitted in Birmingham

We can custom build hatches on site to fit your exact requirements. This hatch was built to size and ready for a coat of paint before we fitted the loft ladder. It enables us to be able to fit aluminium ladders in a lot more houses than being restricted to the dimensions of the UPVC hatch.

This was in a 1980's 2 bed end terrace on Birmingham, B31.

Installing a Custom Hatch & Ladder Plus Flooring in Kingstanding

This is an example of fitting a custom built hatch and 3 stage Easiway Youngman loft ladder in a 1950's terrace on Dormington Road, Kingstanding, Birmingham, B44.

These guys wanted easy access and extra storage in their loft. They had 200mm of insulation which they did not want squashed down so we built a floating frame over the top of their insulation and boarded on top. This allowed adequate room for the insulation and loft to breath.

Installing an Extra Large Custom Loft Hatch in Birmingham

  • Building and installing a custom loft hatch 78cm/98cm

This house already had a very large loft opening but it was old and needed replacing. After measuring up the aperture our team built a customised drop down hatch to fit perfectly in place of their old pop out hatch, making it possible to install a 3 stage aluminium loft ladder.

Fitting Flooring in a Loft With an Inverted Truss Roof in Broadway, The Cotswolds

Here is a great example of:

  • Boarding out a loft with 18mm P5 moisture resistant tongue & groove boards
  • Single level 100mm frame
  • Cutting out around inverted truss roof

In a 2000 period, 3 bed, semi-detached house in Broadway, The Cotswolds.

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.
