The Better Homes & Gardens team show customers how to create more storage in homes by installing attic ladders to utilise roof spaces. Better Homes & Gardens utilise Attic Ladders ’ products for better home storage solutions.
Houses with pitched roofs often have a large ceiling area that can be used for lightweight storage. For use as a storage space, the requirements for alterations and reinforcements are not that extensive if one is converting the space into a habitable room.
The easiest roof spaces to use are those framed in the traditional way with rafters, ceiling joists, purlins and struts.
Most modern truss roofs with the smaller timbers and W-shaped webs intrude into the useable space more and cannot be altered in any way without the advice of a structural engineer.
For quality roof storage solutions, customers can have the area professionally fitted out, complete with attic ladder, flooring, side panelling, lighting and lining with White-Cell insulation.
