Loft Boarding, Ladders & Hatches - Cambridge

The Loftman Company

The Loftman Company specialise in providing loft access and storage solutions for domestic customers. Your loft is such a valuable area of your property, from storing seasonal items like Christmas decorations to family keepsakes, old furniture and appliances or kids’ toys. We work with homeowners in Cambridge and the surrounding area to provide a cost-effective way of storing and safely accessing this area of their homes. 

What we do

Storage space is sought after in virtually every home in the UK, particularly in the current climate where upsizing can be so expensive and impractical for many people. At The Loftman Company, we provide a cost-effective solution to create more storage space in your home, turning your disused loft into a clean and accessible space. 

Adapting your loft with boarding, insulation or a new loft hatch ensures you can use the space above you safely and easily, but it also increases the thermal efficiency of your home. Our extensive experience and talented team of accredited installers enable us to provide a professional service and great results for your home in Cambridge. 

Loft Services

We provide a range of services to help our customers maximise the space in their homes. 

We provide loft boarding in Cambridge homes to help customers transform their loft into a safe, clean and insulated space that’s functional and aesthetically pleasing. Loft boarding not only creates a safer and more practical loft in your property but it also helps to make your home more thermally efficient, preventing heat loss through the top of your property. We use 18mm thick, moisture-resistant boards that are durable, high performance and sturdy. 

We install loft hatches you can depend on, with draught-proof and fire-rated hatches that are built to last. Whether you need a new hatch installed, an existing one relocated or you want to upgrade an old or damaged hatch, we can help. We work to the latest building regulation requirements and can assist you in choosing a hatch and a location that is practical and suitable for your needs. 

You can’t access a loft safely without a loft ladder. At The Loftman Company, we can help with the supply and installation of durable loft ladders Cambridge homeowners can use for many years to come. We have a great deal of experience installing loft ladders in all sizes, so we can help you find the right solution for your home depending on the height of your ceilings and the size of the loft hatch. A well-installed, durable loft ladder makes all the difference when it comes to accessing your loft. 

We also offer additional services, such as loft lining, loft insulation, Velux windows and electrics. Why not contact our friendly team to talk through the options for your home?

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.
