Having an insulation like Icynene LD-C-50 sprayed between the rafters creates an attic environment that matches the rest of the property. Rather than leave the old insulation laying all over the floor why not have it bagged up and removed, this includes any insulation wrapped around the water tank. All the particulates will then be vacuumed allowing a healthy foundation to install loft boarding.
It makes complete sense to install loft boarding. As well as creating a healthier environment you can never have too much space in a home.
Instead of the usual 18mm we use the larger 22mm thickness P5 chipboard. Building regulations state that the larger 22mm P5 should be used for anything above a first floor, also the space between the joists should be no more than 600mm.
Note: In the unlikely event that the joists are wider than 600mm then we will discuss on survey what's required to strengthen the area prior to boarding.
Our highly skilled team can install different types of flooring and boarding to suit all kinds of lofts and requirements.
