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.

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!

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.

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.

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. Our expert installation team utilises strong engineering-grade plastic supports and galvanised steel cross beams to create a secure platform in your loft. This system exceeds the British Standard 6399-1:1996 requirements for minimum imposed floor load. With the right materials and professional installation, you can transform your older loft into a safe and functional storage space without compromising its structural integrity.

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.
