Most of us want to use our loft for storage but they can be unsafe and dangerous places. Older Homes built before the 1970s onwards often have water tanks, pipework and wiring in the loft as well as the loft insulation. The Joist spacing is often irregular and uneven too making it hard to get a smooth floor surface.
Other Loft Boarding companies cannot board a loft properly as they often try to use timber to raise the floor with. This is insufficient for the purpose and is no longer acceptable under the 2013 building regulations. It squashes the loft insulation, and any pipework and wiring must be worked around often leaving an irregular floor height and gaps. It is also far too heavy for your loft structure.
Fortunately we’ve installed our raised loft boarding in hundreds of these homes. Our flooring system will protect your Loft Insulation, electrical wiring and pipework and give you a smooth even floor so that you can use your loft safely without damaging it all… or yourself in the process. It is the ONLY officially BBA approved system for boarding an insulated loft.
