Loft Boarding For Pre-1975 Homes

We offer tailored loft boarding for pre-1975 properties, creating extra storage space without insulation damage.

Is loft boarding suitable for older or period properties?

Yes, Loft Boarding can be carried out in older or period properties. It’s a versatile solution that can be tailored to various property types, including those built before the 1970s. Loft boarding can help you gain extra storage space without damaging your loft insulation, making it a suitable option for older and period properties as well. Our expert installation team specialises in providing pre-1975 loft boarding packages, ensuring that your older property receives the ideal storage solution without compromising its unique characteristics. Some older or more traditional homes may not meet the current standard for loft insulation. Loft hatches may also be too small for a loft ladder to fit, as well as being less energy efficient than modern hatches. We’ve designed this package with these kinds of homes in mind. This package will help your home become more energy-efficient, keeping you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer – and saving you money on your heating bills.

What advantages does loft boarding offer in older or period properties?

In older or period properties, loft boarding is a versatile solution that can enhance the usability and energy efficiency of your home. Creating a raised loft floor, not only provides extra storage space but also safeguards the structural timbers. This approach allows for additional insulation, which can contribute to improved thermal efficiency, helping to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer while reducing heating bills. Additionally, the installation of a new loft hatch can further enhance energy efficiency. Some older properties feature favourable roof pitches that enable standing room in the loft, unlocking the potential for functional and accessible loft space. Overall, loft boarding tailored to older homes offers a range of benefits that cater to their specific needs and characteristics.

Modified building techniques for homes built before 1975

Homes constructed before 1975 often present unique challenges due to the construction methods of their era. In these older properties, you might encounter uneven joists, limited structural support for the roof, and cramped loft entrances. However, with modern loft-boarding solutions, these issues can be effectively addressed. Our expert installation team specialises in adapting and adjusting construction methods to ensure that your pre-1975 home benefits from safe and efficient loft boarding. We can create a stable raised loft floor, accommodating your specific needs and providing space for additional insulation while maintaining the structural integrity of your home. By modernising your loft space, we not only enhance its functionality but also improve its thermal efficiency, making your home more comfortable and energy-efficient.

Loft Ins Space were recommended to us by someone who had previously dealt with the company. We looked at the work they had carried out and were very impressed, so decided to go ahead and contact the company. From the outset everything was very efficient and everyone was helpful and friendly. Michael came to assess the work and give us a price. (He insisted on wearing over-shoes even though we assured him it wasn’t necessary.) We were happy with the price he gave and decided to go ahead. Three guys arrived at eight o’clock on the chosen day and firstly protected all the flooring with polythene membrane. They soon got stuck in and the three of them worked together like a well oiled machine. They had completed the job by around one o’clock and cleaned everything up and took all the ‘debris’ away with them. No clean up for us to do. Before they left we were shown how the new loft ladder and hatch worked and asked if there was anything we weren’t happy with. There wasn’t. Michael contacted us after about five days to ask if everything was okay and how we thought the job had gone. We weren’t asked to settle the invoice until we assured Michael that we were 100% satisfied. All the work, and the ladder itself are guaranteed for as long as we live at this address - brilliant ! We cannot recommend this company highly enough.

I cannot fault Loft Ins Space. They are very professional and the installation team were on time, extremely polite and nothing was too much trouble. I basically let them get on with the work and it was all done in less than a day. Quite remarkable when the work included boarding the loft and installing a ladder. They even cleaned up after themselves so extra brownie points awarded from the wife 👍 The installation has made such a difference to us. No more traipsing a step ladder through the house to access the loft. Will make Christmas that little bit easier now 😁 I would 100% recommend them.

Excellent service from start to finish. Michael was very thorough and informative when he came to survey the loft and explain the process. I knew from that point that the work would be carried out to a high standard, and it was. The three guys arrived bang on time and were very pleasant and polite. They worked flat out all day and managed to complete the installation and hoover up afterwards! They demonstrated the ladder and made sure I was happy with the work before they left. The installation was completed to a very high standard and I now have a huge, usable and easily accessible storage space. Thank you!

Fabulous job, 45m square, all done in a day. Further planning prior to job start for source of electricity to the 5 power points fitted may have helped. Professional fit, completely usable space accounting for almost the foot print of the house. Very happy.

Is it safe to board a pre-1975 loft?

Boarding a pre-1975 loft can be completely safe when done correctly. These older homes often come with distinctive structural characteristics, such as uneven joists and limited access points. However, the specialised LoftZone loft boarding system, designed for pre-1975 homes, ensures safety and structural integrity.

This system exceeds the British Standard 6399-1:1996 requirements for minimum imposed floor load.

Will loft boarding affect my home’s insulation?

Properly installed loft boarding in your pre-1975 home will not negatively impact your insulation. It can enhance it. Our LoftZone loft boarding system is designed to raise the loft floor above the insulation, creating an airflow gap that helps maintain the insulation’s effectiveness. This means that your home will remain energy-efficient, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. So, when done correctly, loft boarding can improve insulation and energy efficiency in your older property.
