Loft Boarding For New Builds

We can assist you in converting your loft into a spacious storage area, providing a secure and clutter-free solution without affecting your new-build warranty

Will loft boarding in my new build avoid my warranty?

At Loft Ins Space, we understand the importance of maximising your loft’s storage potential in your newly built home without compromising your valuable warranty. Our BBA-certified Loft Boarding for New Builds is expertly designed to protect your loft insulation, ensuring it remains intact while providing a safe and durable storage solution. Our professional installation team guarantees that our solution complements your warranty, offering you peace of mind and clutter-free loft space in your new home.

Unlocking space in a compact new build loft with loft boarding

In some smaller loft spaces, support beams can limit the usable area. However, this doesn’t render your loft space unusable. Truss shelving is an excellent way to optimise storage space, making use of previously unused areas while providing convenient access points. Our truss shelving is exceptionally sturdy and capable of supporting a wide range of items, including suitcases and more.

As one of the leading Loftzone installers in the UK, we prioritise strength and safety in every aspect of our installations. Whether it’s loft flooring, loft ladders, loft lighting, or truss shelving, we leave no room for uncertainty!

What are the drawbacks of opting for standard, budget loft flooring in new build homes?

Standard loft boarding involves installing loft boards directly onto the loft joists or a timber subframe. This approach, often considered a DIY method, is not suitable for insulated lofts, especially in newly built homes. The use of a timber subframe to elevate the floor height can compress the insulation and introduce excessive weight that the structure wasn’t designed for. Additionally, it can result in issues like dampness and condensation. It’s important to note that standard loft boarding has not been recommended for lofts since 2013, and even before that, it was considered less favourable.

We had Loft in space come to give us a quote, and from the start we knew we were dealing with a very professional company, the man who came to see us was very knowledgeable, we were booked in for a week later, the four boys that turned up were on time, very friendly and knew what they were doing, they were there a few hours, a little noisey at times which can only be expected, then cleaned up and left, had a curtesy call too to make sure it was as we expected, thanks to all of you for a vey pleasant experience.

Thoroughly recommend Loft Ins Space! From meeting Mike (owner, lovely and friendly) for the free quotation, to Scott and Carl fitting our loft ladder, the whole process was seamless. We were advised on the time of fitting which was agreed in advance. Great care was taken of our house (cream carpets protected) and everything was meticulously cleared away once completed. We were contacted by Mike once the ladder was fitted to make sure we were happy. What a service!

We had our loft done 7 months ago by Scott. The job was done brilliantly. we had a small issue with our light not working but Scott was fast to come the next afternoon and fixed it right away. I can confidently know they offer a brilliant service thank you for your work and sorry for the delay in the review :)

Great experience. They moved the loft hatch, installed more insulation, built flooring and installed a drimaster. Michael was great at responding to questions about the job and quote. The guys who did the job were friendly and efficient. Whole job was done in about a day and a half, to a high standard, and they left the place spotless on completion. Very happy. Thanks.

From when we arranged for Michael to come and give us a quote to have a loft ladder installed and flooring and shelving fitted in our loft to having the actual work completed the customer service we received was excellent. The team did a very good job. They were friendly, professional and very respectful to us and our home. We knew exactly what they were going to do on the day as they took us through the whole process when they arrived on the morning of the installation. They were punctual and arrived at the agreed time and just got stuck into the job. They were very neat workers and when finished they cleaned up after themselves. Everywhere was cleaned to a high standard. We have so much more storage space now which is now much more accessible with the loft ladder.
Lofts In Space us an excellent loft installer. Michael visited us and his team installed a wooden loft ladder cutting out a new hatch. We had a minor problem with it and they returned promptly to fix fuss. It has made our lives safer and easier. Thank you .

Lofts Ins Space did a fantastic job! The work was to an excellent standard and any mess was cleared away immediately. I am very grateful to them for sorting out a potentially tricky job so smoothly. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. Many thanks to all the team.

Very good communication from the staff and once at our house we're very respectful and kept all mess to a minimum. Once finished a full explanation of what works were carried out were given and made sure we were completely happy before leaving our house. Won't definitely recommend.

Excellent work carried out by the Loft Ins Space team, I am really happy with how it's turned out. Michael and his team were recommended to us by my father, who had also had loft boards and a ladder put in. Michael visited over a lunch time in order to make measurements to give us a quote. He then patiently talked us through exactly what they could offer us. A week later, the team arrived and it took about 4 hours to fit loft boards, truss shelving, widening of the loft hatch, a ladder and new hatch and fitting two lights (which involved running electricity). The team were quick and clean - laying carpet protector before they started and hoovering up after they'd finished. Would absolutely recommend.

What is the significance of proper ventilation in a loft space?

With the improved insulation levels found in modern homes, more heat is retained in the rooms below, resulting in lower temperatures in the loft space. Additionally, modern appliances like washing machines, tumble dryers, and showers release moisture into the air, leading to higher humidity levels in our living environments. This increased humidity gradually seeps into the roof space, creating a cold and moist environment. Maintaining proper airflow becomes crucial in such conditions.

When loft boarding is directly applied to the joists or a timber subframe, the air doesn’t have sufficient opportunity to cool down before reaching these structural elements and the boarding itself. These components then act as thermal bridges, collecting interstitial condensation and moisture. Over time, this can lead to rotting and structural issues, affecting the safety of the loft. It is therefore recommended to have an airflow gap of at least 50mm between the boards and insulation, a requirement that standard loft boarding cannot easily meet.
