Picking the right attic ladder

With hundreds of ladder options, it can be tempting to just pick a ladder that looks nice and call it a day. But working with trusted experts like Roof Space Renovators, means you’ll find a ladder that not only looks great, but that will make using your attic a joy.

Some of the things we consider when coming up with options for your attic ladder selection includes:

  • ceiling height
  • frame width to fit between trusses (ceiling joists)
  • intended use (occasional or regular)
  • timber or aluminium
  • ceiling composition
  • Budget
  • ladder fold-out
  • stand-out measurements

What do you need to decide?

There are potential pros and cons for every ladder, and it depends on what you want to use the space for. Having a clear idea of what you want to use your new-found roof space for will allow you to start making decisions about access.

Ask yourself the questions below and we can find a ladder that’s right for you.

  • Is the warranty important?  Or is where it is manufactured more important (Australian vs import)?
  • Is the material it is made out of important to you (timber or aluminium)?
  • Is the budget important? Our saying is the cheaper the steeper.
  • For some, the tread width and depth is the most important. 
  • Weight load capacity 

Come and have a look and try them out in our showroom today.
