Loft Boarding for New Build Houses

Looking for information on loft boarding in New Build Houses and whether this is possible?

You’ve come to the right place!

With such high levels of insulation now required in New Build homes, which is of course a great thing, it can be difficult to imagine that loft boarding is at all possible. In fact, standard loft boarding directly onto joists isn’t recommended, will VOID your New Build Warranty, compromise your insulation, SAP ratings and could even cause lasting damage to your home through damp. Discover the ONLY approved way to board your New Build Loft with Instaloft.

Can you board a loft in New Build Houses?

Yes! Instaloft offer the ONLY approved way to make the most of your New Build Loft space, and that is with the LoftZone Raised Loft Boarding system that has been specially developed to sit ABOVE and PROTECT your insulation. Find out more below and view many examples from our recent loft boarding installs, which have been fitted for our customers across The Midlands, Staffordshire and Shropshire.

What’s wrong with cheaper standard loft flooring for New Build homes?

Standard Loft Boarding is floor boards attached directly onto the loft joists which squashes loft insulation and stops it from working. Squashed insulation causes condensation, which if left will cause serious damp issues in your roof. Once damp sets in, it can go on to affect the entire structure of your house and cost thousands to repair – this is why standard loft boarding will void your home’s warranty. Standard Loft Boarding has not been recommended for lofts since 2013. Even prior to then it was becoming frowned upon. Please note even timber raised subframes will risk your warranty.

How to board a loft WITHOUT VOIDING your New Build Warranty

The LoftZone Raised Loft Boarding system is the only approved way to board your new build home without voiding your new build warranty. This is because the award-winning flooring was specially developed to protect high levels of loft insulation and creates a strong safe deck for loft storage or to create a loft access walkway for workman that may need access to your pipework, boiler, solar panel equipment etc.

How it works:

The Loftzone loft boarding system is comprised of supports made from extremely strong engineering grade plastic and galvanised steel cross beams. As you can imagine this creates a very strong and safe platform in your loft that surpasses the British Standard 6399-1:1996 for minimum imposed floor load requirements. It is the ONLY loft boarding system available in the UK to carry parts with the CE kitemark for British Standards. Loftzone Storefloor hold up to a MASSIVE 500kgs per square meter (independently tested by www.ceram.com).

No loft is too complicated for Instaloft.

In many new build homes, we often see a complex arrangement of roof support beams which would faze or even seem unworkable for some boarders but not for Instaloft! The adjustable support beams on the sub frame allow us to work with even most uneven of joists and beams. The photo examples here show the high level of craftsmanship put forward by our skilled installers on even the most complicated loft spaces to get the maximum storage space possible for our customers. As the Leading Loftzone Installer in the Midlands we ensure all parts of our installations are strong and safe. From the loft flooring to the loft ladders, loft lighting and truss shelving, we leave nothing at all to chance!

How to Maximise Space in a Small New Build Loft:

Some New Build loft spaces don’t have the biggest square footage with support beams limiting the usable space even more, however this doesn’t mean your loft space is unusable. Truss shelving is a great way to maximise storage space, utilising previously redundant space while also creating easy-to access storage points. The truss shelving installed by Instaloft are extremely strong and will support nearly anything you wish to store, including suitcases and much more. As the Leading Loftzone Installer in the Midlands we ensure all parts of our installations are strong and safe. From the loft flooring to the loft ladders, loft lighting and truss shelving, we leave nothing at all to chance!
