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

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.

Looking for a cost-effective option for a loft ladder and boarding in Worcester?

Let’s face it, at this time of year there are plenty of demands on our money. In fact, many of our customers want a loft ladder and boarding to prepare their homes for Christmas, but are on a tight budget.

We are always happy to advise on how to help cut the cost of loft boarding and fitting a fixed ladder without compromising on quality.

Aluminium ladders offer the best value. What’s more, they are strong whilst being lightweight, so they are easy to unfold and put away. We use a trusted trade supplier, so whilst this option is cost-effective, we can also testify to its quality. In fact, aluminium is the most popular ladder choice – we must have fitted hundreds over the years, all for extremely satisfied customers.

A further consideration is what area of the loft do you need boarded. Many customers like to board right up to the eaves and for us to fit the loft boarding around any supports. However, it is equally popular to simply board a central section. This can provide more than ample storage space, as well as room to move around to access boxes and other items.

So if you would like to create extra storage in your home, whilst keeping the costs down, make it simple with an aluminium ladder and boarding of a central section.

Full board or half board – either way goes for loft improvements in Wellesbourne and Stratford-upon-Avon

Full board or half board? Not the choice you make when booking your next holiday, but the decision on whether to create storage in your loft by using all, or some, of the space available to you.

The choice is individual to the home and homeowner as illustrated perfectly by two loft boarding jobs that we carried out this week in the vicinity of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.

Part loft board in Wellesbourne

The first was in Wellesbourne, a village between Warwick and Stratford, where the owners wanted a part-board of their loft. They decided that for their storage needs and budget, a partial board was adequate and we were happy to oblige.

Before and after – you can see the difference boarding makes

Full board in Stratford-upon-Avon

Later that week we were in the town of Stratford itself, carrying out a full board of a garage on the south side of the river on the new development at the top of Loxley Road. The owner wanted to maximise the storage potential available in this sizeable area. They were delighted with the neat finish around the roof supports. The continuation of boarding up to the edge of the loft means that any unsightly insulation is kept out of sight, making the loft a nicer environment without those prickly fibres.

If you are unsure about whether to board the entire loft or only a part of it, we are always happy to provide a quote for both options. Contact us now to find out more.

Partial loft boarding keeps customers in Chipping Campden and Redditch on budget

We’ve been pretty busy this week providing loft improvement services. There seems to have been a common theme with customers choosing to board part of their lofts.

This has been the case at jobs in Chipping Campden and Hunt End in Redditch. It’s a sensible choice. These customers have thought about what they want to achieve within their budget and decided to board the central section of their loft space.

Chipping Campden new-build loft

In Chipping Campden we boarded the middle section of a new-build property. This was a large four-bedroom detached home and it made sense to only board part of the loft as this would provide ample storage space for the customer’s needs. We also fitted an aluminium ladder, which was lightweight, easy to use and within budget. The delighted customer couldn’t wait to start using the new space– in fact, we even moved her belongings up to the loft for her.

Redditch part board

In Hunt End, Redditch, our next job was in a 1980s three-bedroom home. Once again, a useful storage area was created by boarding a central section.

Before we started, the space in the customer’s loft was unusable with only the joints to stand on between rolls of insulation.

Boarding and ladder options to suit your budget

“If you would like your loft boarded, it is worth talking the job through with us,” comments Stuart Dyson, owner of Stu’s Loft Ladders. “We can work to your budget by boarding an area of your loft. An average cost of £35 per square metre will give you a good idea of what to expect. If you want to add a ladder, we have options to suit your budget.”

Stu’s Loft Ladders works throughout the West Midlands in a 20-mile radius from our base in Studley. We are always happy to provide a no-obligation quote. Call us now on 07712 327889.
