Posted on 26th November 2020 at 10:02
The basic need of a loft ladder is to get you up in the loft without any accidents or incidents and that is why you need to have a practical loft ladder. So, when do you decide that it is time to upgrade to a better version?
Does your loft ladder sound and feel rickety when you ascend and descend?
Do you feel that your ladder is not designed to carry heavy loads?
Are you having trouble carrying bulky items?
Perhaps the ladder you have at home is not meant for frequent heavy use, and you recently realised the need for a sturdy ladder that you can use confidently.
Some people change the positioning of their loft after a while and hence they would need a different loft ladder once they switch positions. So which category do you belong to? Are you looking for a loft upgrade or a ladder upgrade?
Changing the entire loft position is not part of a major home renovation and you can get it done with the help of a competent contractor, and then buy the loft ladder from a reputed seller. All you need to be sure about is the measurements needed for the new ladder.
If you are going for an upgrade, then you need to have a general idea of how much space the new one would take. However, it would be a good thing if you could do some research on the various kinds of ladders available in the market, and how, buying one of them would satisfy your essential needs. It is also important that you conserve space in your home when you are staying in a small apartment, and so you need a ladder that would allow you make the best of available space.
