What we do

The Loftman Company has over 25 years’ experience in this industry, providing efficient and competitively priced services to help property owners in the Nottingham area adapt their loft spaces.

We operate across the whole of the Nottingham area, so whether you’re based in Basford or Clifton, Lenton or Radford, we can help. 

Adapting your loft not only makes the space usable for you and your family, but it also increases the value of your property and can make your home more energy-efficient by retaining warmth. This often-under-utilised area of your home can be put to better use, simply by altering a few details.

Loft Services

We offer several services to enable customers in Nottingham make better use of their home’s available space:

Loft boarding offers several benefits for property owners. You may want to make the space more accessible and safer for storing items, as a cost-effective alternative to relocating to a larger property, or maybe you want to make your home more energy efficient. In choosing loft boarding Nottingham residents can prevent heat loss through the roof while also increasing floor space by as much as 50%.

Our loft hatch services range from altering the size of the hatch, relocating it to a different location for easier access or simply upgrading an old or damaged hatch to something more modern. However you choose to modify this area of your home, our loft hatches are high quality, draught-proof and fire-rated, for extra safety. We install loft hatches Nottingham residents can depend on for many years to come, and we offer additional services such as insulation, ladders and more to make the best use of the space.

You need a loft ladder to safely access your loft. We supply and install high quality, durable loft ladders, with sizes and styles to suit all requirements. Whether you’re using your loft a few times a year or regularly accessing this space, having a well-installed loft ladder makes the process of using your loft so much easier.

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

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.
