Precautions Before Loft Boarding

Before embarking on your journey of loft boarding project, there are numerous factors that Life Lofts takes into account.

Loft Access: The first thing we ensure is safe and easy access to your loft, and if the ladder will be required to access your loft.

Roof Design: It plays a crucial part in selecting the area of the loft that will be floored. Joist and rafter roofs allow the installation of large boards, while trussed roofs have a limited area to utilise.

Weight and Storage Capacity: Analyse the items that need to be stored in the loft. Your loft must be able to support the additional weight of the boarding and stored items.

Insulation: It is essential to consider the proper insulation in your loft and how it will affect the boarding and storage of your items.

Ventilation: Our specialists keep a keen eye on adequate ventilation of your loft, as it is crucial to prevent condensation and maintain air quality.

Cost: Cost should be considered in terms of boarding quality and selecting an experienced professional for the job. Our company is known to provide market-competitive pricing and reliable loft conversions.
