There are lots of benefits to raised attic boarding and it’s becoming a more popular way to improve the storage space in the home. Especially with our LoftZone StoreFloor raised attic boarding system that has been designed to protect the insulation underneath whilst providing a safe deck for storage and access.
When installed correctly, raised attic boarding can open up the possibilities of your attic. Let’s outline the most impactful benefits for both you and your home!
More Home Storage Space
Does it seem like you never have enough storage to keep your home clear of clutter? The attic is typically one of the most under-used areas in the home. So, by boarding your attic you can gain extra, valuable storage space that you probably didn’t even realise you had.
As a result, you can transform your home by reorganizing your storage especially where bulky items are stored. By moving suitcases or boxes up to your newly boarded attic, you’re also creating more handy storage space throughout your home!
Storing items in an un-boarded attic can be a tricky and hazardous task. There is a risk of standing on the plasterboard ceiling, rather than the joists which can lead to injury and repair costs if you fall through. If you store anything in your attic that needs access, such as boxes, gas boilers or solar inverters, then you need to have a safe access platform.
By installing raised attic boarding, you’re creating a safe and secure deck allowing you to easily access your attic. The deck of our LoftZone StoreFloor is strong, it can hold up to an impressive 100lbs per square foot.
Our installers can also help with suitable purpose-built attic ladders. Further helping you to store and access your attic safely. The days of balancing on ladders or attic joists will be a thing of the past!
Reduce Heat Loss & Energy Bills
The LoftZone StoreFloor system is designed to provide room underneath the deck for 11”of attic insulation. Having sufficient attic insulation can help to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. With less energy needed to keep your home warm, it reduces your energy bills too!

Increase the Value of your Home
With sufficient home insulation, you can improve the energy efficiency of your home. Having a high energy performance rating can be an attractive feature when it comes to selling your home.
In addition, home storage space is equally a premium selling point. The more storage space you have, the more value you bring to your home.
No Risk of Damp
Often boxes are placed on top of the insulation in the attic to store them away. However, squashing your insulation can reduce the insulation’s performance leading to issues of damp, condensation and mould as the airflow has been squashed.
Correctly installed raised attic boarding using the LoftZone StoreFloor system creates an essential airflow gap between the insulation and deck. Protecting and ensuring the insulation can work effectively to keep warm air in your home.
