What Can I Expect From Installation Of My loft Board?

Does The Loft Board Go Up To My Ceiling?
We supply 3.5mm (2mm less than standard ) in-floor high loft boarding. You will need to specify the height of your ceiling before we arrive, so that your loft board fits neatly in the gap between joists. We provide design boards and drill a hole in the floor for you, and, if necessary, have a professional joiner join it to the joists.
Do I Need To Sand It?

Do I Need To Fill The Hole In The Floor?
Yes, all wood is removed from the floor joists and the whole joist can be fit with loft board. If the floor joist is too large, the loft board is too deep, or your ceiling joists are too far apart, we will have to fit a cross-member on either side to support the loft board and prevent it from sagging.

I Have Damaged The Floorboards – What Should I Do?
