Simply Boarding

The flooring choice of The Loft Men is Caberfloor P5, which is a stable, durable, high-strength wood particleboard which is engineered for all domestic applications, including new builds. It is also moisture-resistant and is the most widely used particleboard flooring in the UK. It is fitted using the tongue and groove profile, and all joints are staggered to provide maximum strength.

As standard, we raise the level of the flooring approximately 150mm above the level of your existing joists. This is done by securing new CLS timbers to the existing joists, but running perpendicular to them. There are three main benefits in doing this:-
1. A raised floor ensures that the correct level of insulation (see ‘Insulation’) can be maintained throughout the whole loft space. Correct level of insulation can be maintained throughout the whole loft space, and a ventilation gap between the insulation and flooring can also be maintained.
2. Raising the floor enables all electrical wires, fans, spotlights etc. to be cleared with no risk of compressing them
3. The way in which the timber sub-frame is fitted helps to strengthen the floor in the loft as the load is then spread over a wide area, and not concentrated in one place.

Sometimes it may be necessary to raise the floor higher than the standard 150mm, perhaps due to large timbers running at floor level in your loft, or because of an exceptionally thick layer of insulation. If this is required then it is no problem – this can be discussed with one of our technicians at the survey and your options will be explained.

As mentioned previously, we supply and fit raised loft flooring at £32 +VAT per board, with each board being approximately 0.72 sq.m (or 8 sq.ft). So, if it is only flooring that you require then you may be able to get an idea of cost by taking some measurements yourself. For example, 10 square metres works out to approx. £400 +VAT. If you prefer, however, we are always more than happy to arrange a free, no-obligation home visit where one of our technicians will survey your loft space and give you a detailed quotation, usually there and then.

So, all of this is available, supplied and fully fitted for: £32 +VAT per board

With 12 months guarantee as standard on all of our work.
