Our skilled and accredited team provides an exceptional standard of workmanship, with a range of services to help you enhance your loft space and create a more functional, accessible space.

What we do

With more than 25 years’ experience in the industry, we understand the need for a professional approach and efficiency. We provide various services to help our customers adapt their loft spaces to suit their requirements, whether it’s a new loft ladder, relocating a loft hatch or boarding out the floor to make the loft usable once more. Our team operates across the Birmingham area, helping customers maximise the space in their homes to reach its full potential. 

Adapting your loft will help you to make better use of the square footage available to you, increasing the value of your property and making it more functional for you and your family. The services we provide can help you make better use of such a valuable yet often under-utilised area of your home. 

Loft Services

We’re passionate about helping our customers in Birmingham make better use of their properties, with services including:

There are several benefits to loft boarding Birmingham customers can take advantage of. Whether you have a growing family and want to avoid moving home, or you want a more cost-effective alternative to upsizing your property, loft boarding can help create extra space in your home and increase the value of your property, as well as retaining warmth in the home. Using durable, moisture-resistant boards, our loft boarding services can increase your floor space by as much as 50% and ensure this area of your property usable. 

Loft hatches come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and the most suitable for your home will depend on the ceiling space available, the location and the type of loft ladder you have. We can either modify your existing loft hatch to make it more suitable for your needs, or we can install a new draught-proof, fire-rated hatch that enhances the safety and comfort of your property. We ensure that we install loft hatches Birmingham homeowners can rely on, and our services can be combined with insulation, loft ladders and more to help you make the best possible use of this valuable space. 

You can’t access your loft safely or easily without a ladder – we supply and install loft ladders in Birmingham, with a range of sizes and styles to suit your requirements. Having a well-installed loft ladder makes all the difference when it comes to using this area of your home, whether you use it regularly or occasionally throughout the year for storage purposes. 

 We can also help with loft lining, loft insulation, Velux windows and electrics. Why not get in touch with our friendly team to discuss the options?

Frequently Asked Questions

Interested to learn more about The Loftman Company and our wide range of loft services? Take a look at our most commonly asked questions below.
For storage purposes, loft boarding doesn’t require you to have planning permission and is totally within your permitted development rights. However, if you’re turning a loft storage space into an actual living space afterwards, then this will require permission and compliance with a different set of regulations to ensure safety and protect your relevant warranties.
The floor joists in a loft can carry roughly 40 kg per square metre, so ensuring you keep your stored items under this will maintain the strength of your joists. It’s crucial to not overload your loft boarding to avoid the chance of any cracks in the ceiling below while protecting the joists from cracking – so try to spread out the weight in your loft as best you can.
It’s very important to us that our team have the required insurance, training and qualifications for the type of work they carry out. Such as Asbestos identification, working at height and managing risk through detailed assessments. This ensures we provide outstanding service and deliver your project safely.
If we wanted to ruin your loft insulation, we’d use standard loft boarding. But as loft experts, we steer clear of nailing loft boards directly onto joists, as this will just compromise the amount of airflow that passes through the layers of flooring and will eventually cause too much damage to the property.
If you are currently using this space for nothing, then loft boarding will almost certainly increase the value of your property. It’s said that installing loft boarding can add up to 50% more floor space, especially when combined with our range of fitted ladder options that fold and collapse.
When fitted properly by trained experts, loft boarding cannot in any way damage a property. On the other hand, if a new flooring system is fitted incorrectly, it can create a world of problems. For example, standard loft boarding can lead to a build-up of damp and heat loss throughout the home.
No, loft boarding is not expensive, espeically when you consider the energy saving potential and reduced heating bills.
Most lofts are perfectly safe, so don’t worry! But if you live in a pre-war-era home or you just need extra peace of mind before going ahead, we offer Structural Calculations and Certificates so you can get an indication of the maximum load limit.
