Location – Surbiton, Surrey

A good morning from us and its off to the lovely Surrey.  This valued customer has had a timber loft ladder in his home for over 20 years and now and it is in desperate need of replacing.  In step team Loft Shop to replace with their three section timber loft ladder.

As timber loft ladders come complete with their own hatches and frames, we had to be very careful with the removal of the old product to ensure the ceilings stay right.

Lets get to work…

Firstly here is the old timber loft ladder

Our fitter seems deep in thought!

Time to gently remove the old loft ladder, this was done piece by piece.

Now that its all removed, we have a nice hole to use to replace with the new timber loft ladder.


We took the old loft ladder outside and the fitter had one last look and wondered if he could use the wood to make himself a shelf (turns out not).


Time to get the new timber loft ladder ready.

Before installing, we made sure the opening was correctly lined and neat, ready for the new loft ladder.


Time to get that timber loft ladder into the loft and screwed into place.

All in place, time to get the loft ladder cut down to size to ensure the height is correct.

Close it up, lets have a look (looks messy now, just keep going).


Time to apply architrave to neaten up those edges…
