Home visit

If you would prefer us to visit your home in person and survey your loft in order to provide a quotation, we are happy to do so. Your written quotation will be fully itemized and drawn up on company letterheaded paper. You will be quoted exactly the same prices as are used in our calculator, but you will not qualify for a 5% discount. A small deposit will then secure your installation date. You pay the balance of the final invoice at the end of the job when you are happy with everything. Read more about our home visit loft surveys.


VAT and why we charge it

We are a well established VAT registered loft storage company. Every loft storage company should be registered for VAT as the threshold is only 85k and when you are buying materials you quickly go over this. You may have noticed that many of the loft storage companies in the north east aren't charging VAT which may make their quote appear better value. The problem is that if these firms are dodging their legal tax obligations what other corners are they cutting? Are they insured and is their guarantee worth anything? Lofty Solution have been trading for many years and do not believe in cutting corners, so you can have peace of mind that you are using an honest and trustworthy loft firm. Read more about what makes us different to other loft storage companies.

All of the loft ladders we fit require a drop-down loft hatch. Please note: If your current loft hatch is not drop-down, your hatch will need modifying.

You may also want to consider moving your loft hatch to a more convenient, or safer position. For example, if your current loft hatch is over, or backing on to your staircase. All prices include fitting and warranty.

4. Choose your flooring, insulation and shelves

Boarding out a loft includes strengthening the ceiling joists with a timber brace and raising the floor level above the insulation. We construct a new floor using 8' x 2' moisture resistant, humidity treated, PS 18mm floorboards. The minimum area of flooring you can order is 64Ft² or 5.95M².

To calculate the area you want boarding, measure the length and width, enter these into the form and select a unit of measurement.

If you have a modern house (typically built 1970 and onwards) with roof trusses as in the picture below, then the width of the internal span is approximately 8 feet with the trusses set at intervals of 2 feet. This can make it easier to calculate the area of boarding you require. As a guide, the average loft space is 35M². All prices include fitting and warranty.

b) Top up Insulation

If your current insulation is only up to 170mm deep, we use 100mm earthwool insulation to top it up to a depth of 270mm to meet current recommendations.

c) Full Insulation

If you don't currently have any insulation, we use 270mm earthwool insulation to meet the current recommendations, keeping your home snug and warm.








Full Insulation QTY


d) Boarding

Unlike most loft storage firms, we always strengthen your ceiling joists and raise the floor level by building a timber subframe. This ensures that your insulation can peform to it's maximum potential, saving you money on your energy bills. We do this as standard and do not charge extra as this is also the correct way to comply with building regulations when flooring a loft for storage.
