Interested in installing attic boarding? Not sure where to start? Look no further, the team at LoftZone has you covered!
Here are 4 handy things for you to consider before Installing Attic Boarding:
The Attic Area
Consider how you plan to use your attic. For example, how much storage space do you need? Could you benefit from boarding your whole attic, or just a smaller section around the attic hatch?
When you have your planned area, measure it (twice!) to ensure that, whether you are installing it yourself or having an installer complete the build, your measurements are accurate.
Thinking about installing it yourself? We have a StoreFloor configurator tool which can provide you with an approximate calculation of the StoreFloor parts you will need for your particular attic.
The Current Insulation
Assess your current attic insulation. Could you benefit from adding more or replacing it? The StoreFloor system allows for up to 13″ under the raised floor, without compressing it. So, it would be a great opportunity while boarding your attic to upgrade your insulation as well.
If you’re fitting the insulation yourself, rolls of “blanket” insulation are usually the easiest option. They can be bought from many DIY stores and come in pre-cut rolls. But blown-in insulation works fine too.
Do you currently have access to your attic?
Do you already have an opening for an attic hatch? Will you require an attic ladder? Could you improve the access to your hatch with a suitable attic ladder?
Ladders are readily available online and can be fitted DIY. Our installers can also supply and fit them for you. If you need a new, larger, or moved hatch, then our installers can do this for you.
DIY or Installers?
Our DIY kits are lightweight, strong and simple to use with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. Perfect for DIY projects.
If you’d prefer not to fit the deck yourself, then we have installers who are fully trained and insured to fit StoreFloor in your attic.
