Loft Boarding, Ladders & Hatches - Ipswich

The Loftman Company

We work with domestic clients in Norwich and the surrounding area to provide high quality flooring and related loft services, so you can make better use of the space in your home. From loft boarding and hatches to ladders, insulation and Velux windows to let in plenty of light into dark lofts, The Loftman Company is your go-to team for adapting your loft.   

What we do

With over 25 years’ experience, our team provides a competitively priced loft service that enables Norwich homeowners to make the best possible use of their available space. Storage space is in high demand in practically every home, and with house prices skyrocketing in the past few years, it’s not necessary practical for everyone to upsize. Loft boarding can help you increase your floor space without needing to move home, offering an affordable alternative that delivers great results. 

Not only do our services provide you with more space for storage, but they can also increase the value of your property, whilst also and improving the thermal efficiency of it too. It’s an effective way to make use of an often-under-utilised area of the home, making it safer and more easily accessible for you and your family. 

Loft Services

We offer a variety of services to enable property owners in Norwich make better use of their home’s available space: 

If you’re a property owner who is lucky enough to have a loft area, you’ll no doubt know just how useful that space is. But when it hasn’t been boarded out, it’s not always safe or practical to use. Loft boarding offers several benefits. Not only does it make the loft more accessible and safer for storing items, as a cost-effective alternative to relocating to a larger property, but it can also help to make your home more thermally efficient. We provide loft boarding Norwich residents can depend on, increasing floor space by as much as 50%, making a safer floor for storage and reducing heat loss.

We can install a range of loft hatches for Norwich properties which are not only functional when used with a loft ladder, but also improve the look of your loft space. Loft hatches need to be the right size for you to make use of your loft space and easy to open, whether that’s a hinged hatch or a drop-down style that can be opened with a pole. The right loft hatch will be air-tight, keeping warmth in and avoiding your loft from becoming a weak point in an otherwise insulated space.

A loft ladder is essential for safely accessing your loft. We can install loft ladders in Norwich homes in a range of sizes and styles to suit your property and budget. Whether you’re updating a damaged ladder or installing a brand new ladder in a space where there isn’t one currently, we’ll help you find the right solution so you can use your loft more easily. 

We also offer a range of related services to enhance your loft space, such as loft insulation, loft lining, Velux windows and electrics. Please speak with a member of our team to find out more about the additional services we provide.

FAQs

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.
