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.

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.

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.

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!

Looking to board your loft in Stratford-upon-Avon?

September has been a busy month for Stu’s Loft Ladders. As ever, we have been visiting customers across Warwickshire and Worcestershire boarding lofts and fitting fixed ladders.

The photo above shows a recent job where our customer chose the cost-effective combination of a part board and an aluminium ladder.

Aluminium ladders are our most popular option as they are lightweight yet strong – they are also the most cost effective choice of loft ladder.

As in this photo, boarding a central section of your loft, is a way to maximise the storage you are getting for the cost. The central section offers the greatest head height and so this part of the loft is the most convenient for access.

When quoting, we are happy to advise on how to keep the costs reasonable whilst achieving convenient loft access. You can email us to arrange a no-obligation home visit at stuart@stusloftladders.co.uk

Family loft ladder business serving customers in Stratford-upon-Avon area

We know that the cost of living is on everyone’s mind right now. We are an independent local business and providing value for money services is important to us. We provide a first class service, boarding lofts and fitting quality loft ladders, at a reasonable price.

Loft boarding comes in at around £60 per square metre with costs having risen to reflect the cost of the raw materials we use. However, there are some tips to keep costs down when creating loft storage.

What can I do to keep the costs down when boarding my loft or fitting a loft ladder?

Boarding a central section of the loft is a popular option and one that makes sense. For most customers, the central section, as in the photo with this post, provides ample storage. This is the most useful area of the loft as it has the greatest head space.

The other tip for keeping costs down is to choose an aluminium ladder. This is not a compromise on quality as aluminium ladders are strong, as well as light, making them easy to pull down and put away.

We are always happy to visit to provide a no-obligation quote and we can make suggestions about how to stick to a budget. Email us at stuart@stusloftladders.co.uk

Back to school for Redditch families is the ideal time to board the loft and clear the clutter

The summer holidays are coming to an end and the kids will be back in school. If, like most families, having everyone at home has meant an explosion in the amount of clutter, there is an easy solution for claiming back space.

Boarding the loft is a way of creating storage for items that family members can’t bear to part with or seldom use. Our customers generally want to store seasonal items and clothes or sentimental belongings that they don’t want to display.

Loft storage is an ideal solution as it means that items can be easily accessed when required. It all comes down to how you store your belongings and, with a bit of organisation including effective labelling and use of boxes with lids or vacuum packing clothes and textiles, loft storage can keep the items you don’t use everyday safe until you need them.

By adding a ladder that is easy to slide into place, easy access storage is assured.

Stu’s Loft Ladders is taking bookings now for autumn and we are always happy to visit customers in Redditch and the surrounding area to advise on the best boarding and loft ladder package for them.

Loft boarding transforms storage in Stratford-upon-Avon home

From wasted space to room for storage, a recent loft boarding job in Stratford-upon-Avon has transformed the attic space for one Warwickshire homeowner.

Before loft boarding and loft ladder fitting

The photo below shows the original state of the loft, which like most that we board, is made unusable by rolls of insulation between joists and nowhere to walk, let alone store boxes.

After loft boarding and fitting an aluminium loft ladder

We boarded a central section of the loft space and fitted a sturdy, but lightweight, aluminium loft ladder.

Boarding a central section of the loft is a popular option as it uses the budget efficiently by only flooring the most useable space.

The customer was delighted and couldn’t wait to start using all the new storage space.

As house prices in Stratford-upon-Avon rise, invest in yours with loft boarding and a fixed ladder

Despite the cost of living increasing, the cost of properties continues to surge in 2022, according to the latest figures from mortgage advisers and estate agents.

This means, that for those who can afford to do so, there is every reason to invest in their home. When looking at the best value for money, loft boarding is, in our opinion, right up there (pardon the pun). The reason being, that it enables homeowners to make the most of the space they have without the large-scale costs or upheaval of a building project.

It makes sense. By creating a new area for storage through loft boarding and proper access, via a safe and sturdy fixed ladder, it becomes possible to clear other areas in the home of items that you do not need every day. Suddenly, you can clear items into boxes, which when clearly labelled, can be easily retrieved and brought back down as needed.

Many customers find that they use their lofts to keep sentimental items that they do not want on display but cannot bear to part with. Knowing that they are safely stored in the loft enables them to free up previously cluttered space in the home.

The Stu’s Loft Ladder team is always busy in Warwickshire and Worcestershire but we can usually fit in customers in a time frame to suit and always on a day that is convenient.
