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.

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 or call/text 07712 327 889.

DIY versus calling in the professionals for loft boarding and loft ladder fitting in Henley-in-Arden

We are all for Do It Yourself when maintaining our homes but there are some jobs where it just makes sense to call in the professionals. Loft boarding is definitely one of them!

Firstly, measuring up for the ladder has plenty of pitfalls. The ladder will need to fit the height of your ceiling and also fit into the loft hatch when folded. You will also need to take into account any clearance or pivoting space in the loft for the ladder once stowed.

Lofts are awkward spaces – we should know as we spend our working days in them. Generally speaking, lofts are full of wiring, pipework and odd angles. To accurately cut the boards to fit, you will need the appropriate power tools and be prepared to work in a tight space. You will also need to think about lighting and a temporary working platform so you don’t fall through the ceiling! You will also need to work around insulation, taking care not to compress it, which will reduce its efficiency and reduce air flow around the timbers. Stus’s Loft Ladders can raise the level of the floor and board over the insulation.

Less than a day to board the loft

When looking at the cost of DIY versus a professional job you should also factor in your time as well as the cost of materials and tools. Our experienced team can board most lofts in under a day and we take away any mess!

A timber ladder, in combination with a larger loft opening, makes going up to the loft a doddle.

Our wooden loft ladder is ever popular amongst older customers who value safety over all when accessing the loft.

Looking for a loft ladder in Stratford-upon-Avon?

We simplify the choice with three options for fixed ladders

Sometimes choice can be overwhelming, particularly when you are not sure of the full range of options. When it comes to choosing a fixed loft ladder, we keep it simple. We have fitted hundreds of ladders over a decade of trading and have selected three of the best quality ladders that will offer years of safe and easy loft access.

Aluminium loft ladder

The most popular option for a good reason. Our aluminium loft ladder offers fantastic value with no compromise on quality. Providing strength and stability, aluminium is also lightweight, so pulling the ladder into position and stowing it away after use offers no strain. We fit aluminium ladders into all types of houses, from new builds to period properties.


If your budget is a little larger, or you will be taking bulkier items into the loft, then consider timber. With wide, sturdy treads, wooden ladders allow you to carry up large items without worrying about placing your feet easily as you ascend. Many customers also choose our timber loft ladder for aesthetic reasons: they simply like the look of them and are going to be using them frequently.


Our telescopic loft ladder is perfect for awkward spaces or those where space is tight, either in the space on the floor below the loft or in the loft itself where the ladder will be stowed. Telescopic ladders slide easily into position and lock, so you can have peace of mind that it is completely safe. Customers are often surprised at how sturdy these ladders are.

Whatever your budget and space, contact us for a no-pressure quote and advice about accessing your loft space. Call us on 07712 327 889 or email

Loft Boarding Installation

Demand for loft ladder fitting in Redditch led to creation of Stu’s Loft Ladders

And it’s kept us in business for over a decade

It is over a decade since Stuart Dyson formed Stu’s Loft Ladders from his base in Studley, near Redditch.

Stuart was a carpenter working for house builders on new-builds when he saw a demand for value-for-money loft ladder installation.

Since that time, the business has expanded to fit loft boarding, but Stuart still runs the business with a small team covering Worcestershire and Warwickshire.

Stuart’s carpentry skills are central to the service the firm provides and enable them to offer customers made-to-measure extras such as loft shelving and safety rails.

Customer recommendation has ensured that the firm has remained busy boarding lofts and fitting loft ladders, even through the pandemic, as soon as restrictions were lifted.

Jubilee provides time to reflect on busy year boarding lofts in Warwickshire

We don’t often take a four day weekend at this time of year. We are usually too busy working away in customers’ lofts to create storage or fitting ladders so that they can access their loft space.

So, the jubilee celebrations have given us time to pause and reflect on what has been a particularly busy period. Despite the squeeze from inflation, people in the Warwickshire and Worcestershire area have continued to invest in their homes. The memory of lockdown looms large and customers in Stratford, Warwick, Alcester and Redditch are still wanting to make the most of the space they have by creating storage space in the loft.

This means that the team at Stu’s Loft Ladders has been busier than ever boarding and fitting fixed ladders. Aluminium remains our most popular option for loft ladders and for good reason; it is the most cost-effective ladder and offers strength combined with ease of use, thanks to its low weight.

Our team is taking a well-deserved break over the jubilee weekend.

Thank you to all our customers – we wish you a happy jubilee bumper bank holiday, whatever you are doing.

Choosing a loft ladder in Redditch

We have been fitting quite a few loft ladders in Redditch and the surrounding area lately. Customers always ask for our opinion on which is the best loft ladder. The reason that we like to visit a property before quoting is because the right ladder for the job will depend on multiple factors which in turn will impact on the price.

Aluminium, wooden or telescopic loft ladders

We have three ladder options, all of which are of the highest trade quality from our trusted supplier. We can fit wooden, telescopic and aluminium ladders depending on your budget, space and strength requirements. 

Other factors to take into consideration are the position and size of your loft hatch, the space around the hatch, and your personal preference. However, we can move the position of the loft hatch if you prefer.

As general guide, telescopic and wooden ladders are sturdier and stronger whilst still being easy to use. An aluminium loft ladder is our most popular option, which may be down to the fact that it is the most affordable whilst also being strong and light.

So, if you would like to find out which loft ladder is best for your needs, then email us at
