When we are fitting your attic stairs, we also offer the option of attic flooring.
We fit high quality tongued & grooved Oriented Strand Board (O.S.B.) flooring. To raise the flooring as not to interfere with pipes, cables and/or insulation, we also counter batten the flooring with additional timbers (usually 2x2”, but we can use larger timbers to raise to flooring more, if needs be but this may incur an increased cost per square metre). We fix the attic flooring down with screws instead of nails, this insures that no damage is done to the ceiling below and also that the flooring can be easily lifted in the event of needing to get to pipes and/or cables.
We have begun uploading regular pictures of attic flooring, which we have carried out, over on our Twitter page. If you click on the Twitter tab below, you will be able to view some examples of our work.
