For most properties built pre 1975, a modern raised boarding system isn’t a viable method due to the lack of headroom. We’ve found lofts in older properties are generally stronger structures, meaning it can be more cost-effective and suitable to install standard loft boarding. The Attic Guys provide traditional systems to enhance your property and allow you to reap the benefits.

Traditional cross boarding still allows the loft insulation to breath, and won’t negatively impact your home’s energy efficiency, in fact, it could promote it! Different base units are added as a foundation and the upper level of boarding is heavier. Stilts are used as a base, rather than a lightweight frame and chipboard is then fixed over the stilts to hold the flooring in place. But we don’t expect you to know the ins and outs of the process, which is why we’ll guide you through each step of the project, from start to finish. Speak with our team today to learn more.

Every home is unique and therefor has differing requirements. Our traditional boarding systems and techniques can be suited to every property type, regardless of age, size or current state. We’ll first inspect the property to make our recommendations and help you find the right system.

Using quality materials in every installation, we can ensure your boarding can stand the test of time and continue to perform for many years to come. All products are rigorously tested against various standards, so you can expect the best when you choose The Attic Guys.

Our systems allow you to enhance and protect your insulation without paying a fortune for a new installation. Having spent many years within the industry, we know what works. We’ll be able to advise on the right type of boarding for your home, taking into account your property type, budget and reason for purchase.

Noticed an increase in energy use and costly bills? Feel like your home quickly goes cold as soon as the heating goes off? All of that warmth – and your hard-earned money! – could be escaping through your loft. Traditional loft boarding can promote heat retention, keeping your home warmer for longer.

Although I only have a small garden I wanted it to look as good as it could but didn't have a big budget. I recommend Distinct Landscaping without reservation.
