Loft Boarding, Ladders & Hatches - Leicester

The Loftman Company

Providing a 5-star service and 25 years’ experience in loft installations, The Loftman Company is the leading loft specialist in Leicester, and the UK as a whole. We offer many different loft installation services including loft boarding, loft hatches, loft ladders and fully NICEIC certified electrics.

Our team of installers are qualified and trained in all aspects of fitting and health and safety and will complete the work quickly and with as little disruption to you as possible. Plus, we use energy-efficient materials to make sure your new loft does not have a negative impact on the environment.

What we do

Increased storage and better access are our mantra for our loft services. Loft boarding can increase the useful capacity of your loft, as well as giving you a much more stable surface to work with and keep your belongings safe and secure. 

Replacement loft hatches and loft ladders ensure that access into and out of your loft is a breeze, but without causing a breeze as they are made of thermally-efficient materials and airtight fixings to actively keep the draughts out.

Additionally, we can add insulation of varying thicknesses, electrics and a velux or keylite roof windows to make your loft a much more enjoyable space to use.

Loft Services

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

Having your loft partially or fully-boarded can make a huge difference to how you use the space in your Leicester home. A flat and steady floor makes for easier storage and you can negotiate your loft more effectively when you are looking for something you have stored up there. 

Our loft boarding is 18mm thick and made of a high-density high-quality moisture-resistant material that lends itself to withstanding the general wear and tear that goes along with loft use in Leicester. 

All our loft boarding supports come with a lifetime warranty giving you additional peace of mind. Another advantage when using our approved service is we won’t void any new build house warranty that you currently enjoy, displaying both our quality and commitment to our high class service.

Small loft hatches are no good to anyone in Leicester and we make it our mission to provide access that is suitable for people of all shapes and sizes and any items they might want to keep in their loft. We can measure, cut and fully install a loft hatch of any size, regardless of how big or tiny your current hatch is. 

We use drop-down non-obtrusive loft hatches for all our installations, which makes it simple and quick for you to get into and out of your loft with ease and minimal effort.

We have a range of pre-manufactured and bespoke loft ladders in either aluminium or wood, designed to suit the requirements of our customers across Leicester. Whether you want a ladder that folds up into a compact space or slides along and is flat against the floor of your loft, we will find a ladder for you.

We can include handrails for added safety when climbing up and down the ladder, and have a variety of rung widths to choose from so you won’t lose your footing and can carry items up and down without fear.

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.
