Alcester home owner opts for part-boarding of loft

Boarding just a central section of your loft is a cost-effective way to create effective storage in your home.

This photo shows how Stu’s Loft Ladders did just that for a homeowner in Alcester.

As you can see, there is ample storage space easily accessed by a newly-installed timber ladder.

In most lofts, it is not necessary to board right up to the eaves as the most useable space is in the centre. This is particularly true if you are planning to store larger items that would not fit at the edges of your loft where the roof line is lower.

When we visit to provide a quote, we advise on where is best to board to meet your needs and the quirks of the property such as where the loft opening is or can be be moved to.

Keeping busy boarding lofts and fitting loft ladders in and around Alcester

It’s spring and we’ve been busy. Maybe it’s the good weather or maybe just the time of year, but we have been particularly busy this April, boarding lofts and fitting loft ladders in Alcester and the surrounding Warwickshire towns and villages.

The photos below are from a job which shows what we do best: creating functional, easy loft access with no mess to clean up afterwards. For this customer, we fitted an aluminium loft ladder and enlarged the loft opening. The new larger hatch is ready insulated and closely fitting, so no more losing precious heat up to the loft cavity. It leaves a neat finish that blends in and looks as if it were always there. 

Our next job was a loft ladder installation and part-board for a customer in a new-build property in Alcester. Their preference was for a wooden ladder, which, as the photo shows, stows neatly away in the loft space. Part boarding is a popular option as it creates storage space without committing to boarding right up to the eaves, making it more economical.

In this third job, our experienced team moved the loft access from the bedroom to the landing. Not only was this a more convenient location, but we were able to ensure that the loft opening was larger than before, making it so much more useable. No more moving beds out of the way and then squeezing through a small loft opening for this customer.

All in all, three happy customers, even more so as all our work is guaranteed
