Attic ladders, also known as loft ladders or attic stairs, serve as a vital link between the living space of a home and the often underutilized attic area.
 These retractable staircases provide convenient and safe access to the attic, allowing homeowners to maximize their storage potential or access mechanical systems, such as HVAC units or water heaters, located in the attic space. 

 

Attic ladders come in various types, including folding, telescoping, and sliding, each offering unique benefits and suitability depending on factors such as ceiling height, available space, and personal preference.

Choosing an Attic Ladder

When choosing an attic ladder, homeowners must consider several factors to ensure optimal functionality and safety. 

These factors include 

  • the type of ladder,
  • material
  • weight capacity
  • insulation,
  • and ease of installation.

Proper installation is crucial to ensure the attic ladder’s stability and structural integrity, as well as to prevent accidents or injuries during use. Whether opting for a budget-friendly option, a standard attic ladder, or investing in a premium model with advanced features, selecting the right attic ladder can significantly enhance the accessibility and usability of the attic space while adding value and convenience to the home.

Attic Ladders - Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to install an Attic Ladder and floor installed?

Costs can vary depending on certain aspects such as the space you wish to utilise in your attic, the type of attic ladder that suits your needs and amount of storage space you want.


Most of our rooms are costed on a transparent square metre pricing structure so there are no hidden costs. A truss roof attracts a slightly higher rate, but we will advise of this right from the start.

Do you build complete lofts and living areas?

Sorry no, we only install storage areas and ladders to access your attic, which are completely different from living/habitable areas and cannot be used as such. 

Do you have a showroom?

As an owner operator I keep costs down by not having a showroom, however this means I have competitive pricing and a premium & honest service! 

I also have made a YouTube channel to help demonstrate the wide range of premium ladders I sell, check it out by clicking.

I have ducted air conditioning - can this we worked around?

Yes, in most cases we can re-route the ducting if required. This is a common task as the ducting is most often run on a direct route to the outlet running across the path of the most usable storage area. 

If I only have a small roof, can I still use it as storage?

If you can crawl comfortably in your attic, you’ll be able to comfortable fit things in your attic! With flooring installation available, your attic space can be utilised even if it is small.

How long does it take to install an attic ladder?

I install the attic ladder the  within 2 weeks of quoting the job . Have peace of mind that when I’m finished with the installation, I’ll leave your home just as clean as when I arrived!

What are the ladders made of?

Our Attic Ladders range from timber ladders to full aluminium ladders. The quality of our ladders are guaranteed for your peace of mind! 

Is my existing roof structure strong enough?

Yes, depending on the weight. We build a sub frame on top of your existing ceiling joists upon which we securely screw down our flooring which is engineer approved to hold 75 kg per square metre, plus your own weight. 

Do you charge to come to my house and quote?

An appraisal is completely free and without obligation. Most of the time I’m also able to quote over the phone if provided with a clear picture! However sometimes I need to visit the site in person, completely free of charge.

    Thank you Owen for a great installation of our attic stairs in the garage. Wished we had thought to do this sooner, rather than trying to lift myself through the manhole I think all houses should be built with them in. Very happy with everything, thank you !

    Very impressed with our new storage area, it has made such a big difference to how we can now store all the christmas decorations and items we don’t use regularly. After we had eoin over for a measure and quote he was very informative about the hole process, the installation was very professional and we couldnt recommend eoin highly enough

    Owen is a great worker, diligent and thorough, he did a job for us and I can say we were so happy with his performance. He went way beyond what a normal tradesman would do. He also kept to his quoted price and kept us informed when he was on site. I can recommend Owen for ladders, floors, roofs and sheds safe in the knowledge that you too will be happy with his work.

    Very happy with the attic ladder eoin install at our Queenslander home. The ceiling was particularly high so i was worried about the usability of the ladder, but it is very simple to use and of the highest quality. Its great to deal with an owner operator like eoin, he was the only point of contact during the whole process.

    After we recently bought a house the first thing we had an issue with was lack of storage. After we saw eoin on facebook we had him around for a quote. We were very happy with how he explained the whole process. His quote was very reasonable and we are so happy with the finished result

  • So happy with our new attic storage area. We had been struggling for years with for storage. After a quote from eoin we had him around to install a Kimberley attic ladder and storage flooring. We couldn't be happier with the job he done and how he did a few extra bits of work at no charge. Highly recommended

    We loved Eoin’s work. He installed 2 Illume solar powered skylights to brighten up our days, a clever attic ladder and floor and a solar powered roof fan which is really cool. He is a genuine, hard-working, reliable guy who knows what works. He provides real value for money and we wholeheartedly recommend him.

    Eoin installed an attic ladder for me, a difficult install in an old Queenslander with 3.5m ceilings. Communication before the install was fantastic. Eoin was always punctual and did a professional and tidy install. Couldn't be happier with the result. Very happy to recommend Attic Ladders and Floors.

    I rang Eoin today to organise a repair or a replacement of my currently old but functional attic ladder. A visiting tradesman had bent it and it would no longer close. Eoin took me through the options and offered to drop by on his way to another job for a look to see what best to do. I asked if I should send some photos to help him out in preparation for the repairs/replacement. I sent them through and whilst talking to him, he proceeded to tell me how to fix my problem from the pictures over the phone. He said ring me back if it doesn’t work and I will come as arranged. So 10 minutes later, attic ladder all fixed and no need for repair or replacement. Eoin did himself out of a job, by being a decent bloke. I can’t speak to his work, but if it matches his integrity and decency, it will be top notch. The minute my current arrangement actually breaks, he is the only person I will call. Give him a ring, you won’t regret it.

    I did alot of research and chose Owen over the competition due to his vast knowledge on various solar vent products, attention to detail, and excellent service. He is 2nd to none - highly recommended. Also, the solar vent works fabulous - so much heat is removed from the roof cavity, we can run our A/C less often.

    10/10 would recommend Eoin from Attic Ladders and Floors! Due to our expanding family we've had Eoin out twice to install two attics and have been more than thrilled both times. Eoin was punctual, curteous, professional, very well priced and did an excellent job

    Had such a great experience dealing with Eoin. We had a really old attic ladder that needed to be fixed and he kindly came over to have a look at it and even taught us how to repair it in future. Extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommend his services
