|Folding Attic Stairs, also known as folding ladders, are a convenient and easy way to turn
your unused attic space into a useful space. You have lots of storage space in your attic, but
you aren't using it because you hate to drag out a ladder and squeeze through your access
panel every time you want to put something up or take something out. If you're like most
homeowners, you probably need that space. Consider your attic(s). It may be hard to get up
there now, and there may not be a floor, but we can change that.
Folding stairs are intended to provide easy access to an attic. When you need to get into the
attic, you pull down the stairs; when you're done with them, they fold back up into the attic.
Most houses have attic space above the upper level and many have attic space over the
garage. Either place is usually ideal.
After having attic stairs installed, many customers simply use the attic as is. Most attics are
filled with insulation and many have no lighting. You must be careful to walk only on the
support joists, otherwise it is possible to fall through the ceiling below. Lightweight items
can easily be put up there on top of the insulation. However, a better way is to have some
plywood flooring and a simple pull chain light bulb holder installed. Not only does it help you
see what you are doing up there, but the flooring makes it easier to get around and provides
you with a sturdy, solid storage platform.
There are several different models of attic stairs to choose from. They range from
standard duty to heavy duty, depending on your needs. There are also different installation
options. Contact me so we may discuss you needs and put that attic space to good use.
