Loft Ladders in Hove | Choosing a Ladder for Your Conversion

While loft conversions are an ideal way to increase living space, it is important to consider your access options. For many homeowners in Hove, constructing a new staircase will take away valuable space but luckily, we have the perfect solution. Richley Contractors supplies and installs a range of loft ladders and advises on the best option for your property. As a building company with over 25 years of industry experience, we deliver reliable, space saving access solutions for loft extensions.

 

As experts in building and carpentry, we provide tailored services for every project in Hove and the surrounding areas. As such, we ensure you get the most suitable type of loft ladder for your property and requirements. When choosing a ladder, it is essential to consider the following:

 

1. Budget

 

Loft ladders come in a range of styles and materials at varying prices. As with all aspects of loft conversions and other home improvements, you must think about how much you can afford to spend and set a realistic budget for your ladder.

 

2. Available Space

 

Many customers in Hove opt for a ladder over a staircase because they have limited space available on the floor below the conversion. Consequently, it is important to consider how much space there is for a ladder. As a building company committed to meeting the needs of our customers, Richley Contractors can supply ladders with a very small footprint for loft extensions.

 

The available space inside your loft is also a key consideration. For example, if you have a small loft, you will need a ladder that takes up a small amount of space when retracted.

 

Furthermore, it is essential to measure the distance from floor to ceiling to ensure loft ladders are the correct size. With many years of experience in building and carpentry, we provide expert services and solutions to ensure the perfect fit for your home in Hove.

 

3. Users

 

It is vital that your new ladder meets the needs of your household, so you need to think about who will be using the ladder. For example, if children or elderly persons will need access, consider more stable models with wide treads and handrails.

 

4. Materials

 

As a dedicated building company, Richley Contractors supplies loft ladders in a range of materials and styles. The best option for you depends on your taste, the style of your property and the purpose of loft conversions and ladders.
