It’s not uncommon for your loft to be the most neglected place in the home – but it doesn’t need to be. Loft board installation can provide a cost-effective storage space for all your boxes and memories you have no room for elsewhere but don’t want to part with.
Increase the value of your home with expert Raised Loft Board Installation
Getting raised loft boarding installed in your home can be a cost-effective way of increasing the storage capacity by adding up to 50% more floor space when compared to non-boarded homes. The more storage you have, the more your home will be worth as one of the big things prospective buyers look for is storage space. The cost of boarding a loft will be more than covered by the increase in value to the property.
Traditionally, the only space available for your possessions is balanced precariously across the joists. While the fastest way to board a loft is to place the boards directly onto the joists, it isn’t suitable for most lofts, especially if you have insulation, wiring, and pipework installed.
Raised loft boarding is the perfect solution to combat this, as it allows you to create extra storage space while protecting the insulation beneath it. It does this by building solid and safe cross-beam platforms held up by the engineer-grade tri- and uni-supports. Capable of holding 500kg per square metre, it effortlessly exceeds the minimum floor load requirements for the British Standard building regulations.
How raised loft boarding can reduce your energy bills
A significant portion of heat loss in a home is lost through the roof, making loft insulation essential to retain the heat and keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Raised loft board installation can be a great way to facilitate additional storage space whilst also ensuring your insulation is protected and working optimally. It is a cost-effective solution for those looking to reduce their energy bills and save some money. It will pay for itself in energy savings by adequately protecting and enhancing your insulation, creating extra storage space and adding value to your home.
The raised system prevents the insulation beneath it from being compressed and squashed, creating an air gap that allows the air to flow under the loft flooring. The air gap prevents problems with condensation from forming, which could lead to more dangerous issues such as mould and wood rot. Damp insulation can reduce its effectiveness, and if your boarding rots, you endanger damaging your belongings.

The compact supports are 159mm compared to the 279mm of the original, so it is suitable for those happy to have reduced insulation up to 100mm. Since newer houses usually have more insulation than this, StoreFloor Compact is thus mainly used in older properties.
