Swap and store your winter and spring clothes in the loft in Warwickshire and Worcestershire

If you like to sort your winter clothes from your spring and summer ones, vacuum-packing them ensures that you can store them in your loft whilst protecting them. 

Whilst lofts can be prone to mildew, vacuum packing clothes protects them and ensures that they will be moisture and dust free. Vacuum bags can be bought inexpensively on the high street or online and are easy to use.

We board dozens of lofts each month and clearing bedroom clutter is a major reason motivating customers to create loft storage.

The addition of a ladder completes the package and makes accessing stored items a breeze.

No loft hatch in Stratford-upon-Avon?

In older properties, there may be no access point for the loft, which poses a problem if you would like to board your loft or fit a fixed ladder.

Indeed in houses built more than 150 years ago, it is common to find no loft opening. For customers in this situation, our team of trained carpenters can carefully assess where to create an opening so that it is convenient without compromising the roof structure.

Often older houses, particularly Victorian and Edwardian, have large loft areas with good head room which is ideal for storage and access. However, they also often have small loft hatches which can be inconvenient for storing large items. We regularly enlarge existing loft hatches for customers in this age of property.

Whilst we complete most jobs in one day, the installation shown above took two days as the customer wanted a large area boarded, plus the installation of a timber ladder and the creation of a loft hatch where there was none. The customer was delighted with all the new storage possibilities.

Endless storage opportunities through loft ladder and boarding combo in Evesham

Our customers all have different ideas about what they want to store in their lofts.

Some are just itching to store a partner’s sports equipment or items from a former hobby that they no longer use. Others run a business from home and have files that they need to keep for a period of time that they don’t want cluttering up precious office space. For some, it is sentimental items that they just aren’t ready to get rid of but don’t want to look at every day.

Whatever they use the space for, boarding the loft creates functional storage, allowing them to get organised in other areas of their homes. Fitting a loft ladder means easy access for when the items are wanted. It takes less than a day for us to fit a ladder and board the loft and the change for customers can be very freeing as it opens up possibilities in other areas of the home.

Tidy loft, tidy mind through loft boarding in Redditch

If you are the type of person who likes everything to be neat and tidy, boarding to the eaves in your loft can help you maximise the amount of storage space whilst helping to keep your items clean.

These days most of our lofts are well insulated, which is fantastic new for keeping your heating bills down but not so great when you need to store items and have to deal with all those itchy insulation fibres.

By going for a full board, you can ensure that the fibres are enclosed so that they do not get onto either the items you are storing or you as you retrieve them. We can ensure that the insulation itself is preserved without any compression, by raising the level of the boards.

As a bonus, loft boarding to the eaves means that you maximise storage space by being able to tuck items away at the sides, whilst still keeping an area clear in the middle for access.

Loft ladders upgrade in Leamington Spa makes going up to the loft a breeze

If you are looking to upgrade your loft ladder then our timber option may be for you.

A wooden loft ladder features sturdy, wide treads ideally suited for carrying heavier objects or for customers who feel more secure using it over a narrow tread.

We also fit our timber loft ladders with a hatch that is up to 1.2 metres long which means no more sqeezing through a loft opening that is uncomfortably small.

We only fit trade-quality ladders from a trusted supplier so our customers can be sure of the best quality.

We also take away any mess when enlarging a loft opening and will even paint around the new hatch so it looks as if it was always there.

We work in Leamington Spa, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon and the surrounding areas and can provide customer recommendations.

Boarding the loft could release the storage potential in your Stratford-on-Avon home

Feeling short of storage space in your home? There could already be more than you think!

Loft boarding can release the potential for storage and allow you to organise your belongings.

In the photo with this post, the homeowner was delighted with the central floor area created through boarding. We also added an aluminium ladder for easy access.

This is a popular combination – boarding a central area helps to keep costs down whilst still providing plenty of valuable storage space. It also means that you are maximising the area of the loft with the most head clearance.

We can board most lofts in under a day, taking away any mess with us so that you are free to start using your new storage space right away.

Do you choose an aluminium or wooden loft ladder for your home in Stratford-upon-Avon?

Potential customers often ask our advice on which loft ladder to choose and we are always happy to discuss the options. But the perfect choice depends on budget and purpose.

We fit three types of tried and tested, fixed loft ladders for our customers in Stratford-upon-Avon and the surrounding area.

Aluminium is the most popular option and we fit dozens of them each year. They are the most cost-effective ladder we fit, but they are also the most popular because they offer a combination of strength and stability with the lightness of aluminium, making them easy to pull into place and stow.

If space is tight, then a telescopic ladder might be the right choice for you. A telescopic loft ladder is perfect if there is no stowage space in the loft or if you have a limited area underneath. Surprisingly sturdy and totally secure once locked into place, we fit these ladders regularly in period properties such as terraces and cottages.

The third loft ladder we offer is in timber. A wooden fixed ladder has wide, sturdy treads and is a good choice if you are carrying heavy items into the loft. Many customers also choose timber for aesthetic reasons, simply preferring the look of timber.

We are always happy to advise on what is the best option for your home and budget. You can email us at  stuart@stusloftladders.co.uk or call/text 07712 327 889.

New year, new-look home through loft boarding in the Redditch area

Do you want to transform your home in 2023? Loft boarding is a practical way to make real changes throughout your home without any invasive and expensive structural work.

Our customers are amazed at the difference having proper storage can make. Put simply, by creating storage space, you can go through your home, decluttering and freeing up space to achieve a stream-lined look. This is perfect if you find it difficult to get rid of things or have seasonal items or equipment that you need to store conveniently.

Loft boarding can be done within one day. We are experts at our trade and will leave your home looking the same as it did when we arrived. That means no mess or debris for you to clear and no dust as we take care to ensure your home is protected and then cleaned afterwards.

Compared to other ways of making a difference in your home, loft boarding offers value for money. We can board most loft shapes. The choice is yours – board right up to the eaves for full storage or board a central section to keep costs down. The latter is a very practical solution and one that most customers choose.

A busy year boarding lofts and fitting ladders in Warwickshire and Worcestershire

As 2022 draws to a close and we finally finish for the Christmas break, we have time to reflect on what has been a busy year, boarding lofts and fitting ladders.

This year, we have worked across Worcestershire and Warwickshire, from Leamington Spa to Droitwich. As life went back to normal and prime ministers changed, we continued providing the same reliable service and focusing on making our customers happy. Thankfully we have remained busy, thanks to word-of-mouth.

With household budgets squeezed, our aluminium ladder continued to be our most popular fixed ladder. Combining strength and ease of use, this is our most cost-effective option and we fitted dozens of these loft ladders in homes from Warwick to Redditch.

We were also very busy boarding lofts – transforming unusable spaces into practical storage areas. The homeowners, whether in period properties or new-builds, were delighted with being able to use their lofts thanks to our boarding services.

Here’s to 2023. Wishing all our customers and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Going up to the loft needn’t be a hassle if you live in Warwickshire

It’s the time of year again for the obligatory trip up to the loft to fetch the Christmas decorations!

If going up to your loft is something you dread, then maybe you should rethink your loft access!

A sturdy, easy to operate ladder makes all the difference. No wobbling around on a portable ladder – with just an easy sliding action, a fixed loft ladder offers safety and ease. We fit models to suit all budgets and spaces and we are always happy to advise on the options available.

Did you know that you can easily enlarge or even move your loft opening? Often loft hatches are too small to accommodate bulkier items or boxes. They are often in inconvenient spaces such as bedrooms or even bathrooms. Boarding up the old opening and fitting a new hatch in a more convenient space can be done without any tell-tale marks – we will plaster and paint so that it looks as if it was always in the new position.

Give us a call for a no-obligation quote on 07712 327 889. We cover most of Warwickshire and Worcestershire from our base in Studley, near Redditch.
