Loft Boarding for
Pre-1975 Homes

We Provide Loft Boarding packages tailored to older properties built before the 1970s and can help you gain masses of extra storage space WITHOUT SQUASHING your Loft Insulation.

See how Instaloft can transform lofts in older properties!

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.

A Typical Loft Boarding Package for Older Properties

Over the years methods used in construction have changed. Older Houses often have uneven joists, may or may not have timber supports in to support the roof structure, water tanks, wiring and pipework and often small loft entrances.Our packages for older properties are the perfect answer to solve most of these issue easily.

A Typical package that we are asked to do in this age of property consists of:

A chosen area of our raised loft floor system – You can choose to have all or just part of your loft boarded

An Enlarged Loft Opening fitted with a Hinged Down UPVC Loft Hatch

A 3 Section Aluminium Loft Ladder with operating pole for ease of use – You can also upgrade to a 3 section timber folding loft ladder which comes with an extra large loft hatch built in.

An Enlarged Loft Entrance fitted with an Energy Efficient Hinged Down Loft Hatch

A Single Light and Switch – Or Upgrade to a Fluorescent Tube Light, fitted by our fully qualified electrician and issued with a minor works certificate.

Loft Insulation – Some homes require more loft insulation to bring them up to the recommended levels of 270mm.

Loft Lining – Many people ask us to line the loft roof to protect their belongings from the dusty debris often found in older properties.

All items are optional and you can pick and choose between them to suit your own needs.
