Location – Borehamwood, Hertfordshire

This week, we are in leafy Hertfordshire.  This valued customer had a hole in the ceiling already and asked us to come in and trim the hole to size and install a new timber loft ladder.  Our timber loft ladder comes complete with their own insulated hatch door and frame.

Let’s get to work…


This is the hole that was there already.  We set to work trimming the opening to size.

Excellent, the timber loft ladder is in place, we now have to make the relevant adjustments to it.


Now we need to trim the ladder section down to size so its nicely angled to walk up and down.
