Loft Boarding

Loft boarding presents an easy option to increase the usable space of your home without making significant changes to your loft. However, it requires professional installation to install loft boards and create a fruitful loft space at your home.

At Life Lofts, we have been providing proficient loft boarding solutions for over a decade, including installation, replacement and repairs. Contact us today for a sturdy loft boarding at your home.

Types of Loft Boards We Install

Loft boards can be classified into three sub-types based on their material:

Chipboard: Generally referred to as P5 chipboard, it is a highly moisture-resistant material and is suitable for moisture and humidity-prone areas. These loft boards are typically green in colour and are an expensive option.

OSB: Formed by compressing wood strands and binding them with an adhesive, OSB (oriented strand board) is a relatively new material for loft boarding. It is a durable and high-end material with an initial cost somewhat higher than chipboard.

Plywood: Plywood is manufactured by compressing multiple thin sheets of veneer and binding them with adhesives. It’s the strongest material on the list and has the highest initial cost as well – the reason why it is rarely used.

Benefits of Loft Boarding

Loft boarding offers numerous benefits:

  • Helps in de-cluttering your house by providing more storage space.
  • Creates easy and safe access to the attic and the joists.
  • Helps add more insulation, adding to the home’s energy efficiency and reducing bills.
  • Adds an extra layer of solid materials, facilitating sound insulation.
  • Increases your house’s monetary value.
  • Allows you to execute a full loft conversion and convert your attic into a liveable room.

Cost of Loft Boards

The cost of loft boarding depends on various factors and can vary from project to project. These factors include:

  • Area of the space
  • Scope of the project
  • Insulation requirement
  • Type of loft access

Typically, the basic chipboard flooring can cost somewhere around £30-£80 per m2. You can contact our experts to get a precise cost estimate for your loft boarding project.

Loft boards, if not installed properly, can cause condensation in the loft due to poor ventilation. That is why we recommend you hire our experts to carry out the job.

Yes, you can install insulation under loft boards. It will increase the energy efficiency of your house and considerably reduce your energy costs.

Loft boards come in different sizes. Their standard thickness is 18mm and 22mm, and they have 3 standard dimensions, i.e.:

  • 1220mm x 320mm
  • 2400mm x 600mm
  • 2400mm x 1200mm

In short, yes, but it is subject to some considerations, such as how much load they are already bearing and whether they are installed properly or not.
