About

The Loft Boys love lofts!! Our love for all things lofts, is always displayed through the quality and professionalism we apply when transforming dreary attics into usable storage spaces. We like spending our days working in people’s homes, which means we always work in a tidy and considerate manner to ensure we end up with happy customers!

If you need your loft boarded out for storage, we’ll always take the time required to work efficiently and professionally, with a minimum of disruption to our customers. Maybe you need your loft floor raised above insulation, no problem! We’ll fit the government-backed LoftZoneTM StoreFloor system for you.

To gain access to your loft, you’ll need an adequate hatch and a loft ladder to use it. If your loft hatch is a tad too small, we can extend the opening and fit your choice of ladders from our wide range. To find what you’ll be storing in your loft, you will likely need some form of lighting. We can even fit a roof window to make use of natural light.

In spite of unusually extreme heat, this firm managed to complete in the time estimated. To achieve this they arranged for 2 teams of 3 to work, one team frequently taking over from the other, to maintain the level of work required. They did a magnificent job. They were courteous and left no mess behind. Couldn't be happier.

We got the Loft Boys to come and change/fix our insulation and also add more boarding to our loft so we could use it for storage. We were really impressed by the service throughout. After a visit from Sam, we were emailed a quote that seemed reasonable and they don't try to upsell you on unnecessary work. Once booked in, a team of three led by Rhys came to do the work. They arrived on time and worked throughout the day to get the work done and did a fantastic job. The whole team was friendly and gave us updates on how it was going. They cover up/protect the floors as they work and cleaned up well when they were done too. Overall we were really happy with the service and would happily recommend them to others.

We wanted to improve our existing loft insulation, reboard the flooring and replace our dodgy ladder. The whole process with Loft Boys very easy and stress free. Customer service was excellent - always had clear communication. From the surveyor, the guys doing the installation, to those sorting out invoices - really professional. Everything done to time and budget - there was a minor issue with the ladder and it was easy to have it fixed.

I had a new floor and new insulation fitted in my loft. I initially noticed the company through when Which magazine. The surveying process was smooth and faultless. The timescale I was provided with worked for me and is what actually happened. The fitters were very professional, explained the process on the two days the work took to be completed and did a great job. My loft was left clean and tidy and unrecognisable given the state it had been before the work was completed. From start to finish the process was smooth and professional and the price was right for me. No complaints.

After receiving many cold calls from scammers about insulating our loft, we decided to research insulation, but by a reputable company, Loft Boys. The surveyor arrived promptly, made helpful suggestions and quoted to insulate the whole roof (it is a longhouse) and also to board out the large middle section (where the loft ladder is located) for storage. We received the quote quickly and accepted it - we thought it was good value for money. A few weeks later a team of 3 arrived, covered all floors and stairs with sticky-backed polythene so they remained clean. We hadn't been able to lift some of the heavy storage boxes down before their arrival (we're in our 70s) but nothing was too much trouble for them and they quickly bought them down the ladder. The work was finished in one day and they asked us to inspect it before they left. It was immaculate up there. They filled in all the gaps around the edge of the floor, right up to the edge of the roof with both the insulating material and the chipboard flooring. Around the loft hatch they did a professional finish with wide-angle bead which meant no little gaps or traps around the edge. Various pieces of electrical equipment and piping was fixed down in position to the floor, where applicable. They checked the working mechanism of the fold-up loft ladder to ensure it was safe. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. They are a thoroughly professional company and we now have a warm second floor.

The quote was detailed and exact, my amendment was accepted without hesitation. The work was carried out on the agreed date and was completed sooner than I thought. The attitude of the installers was friendly and professional. Everything was tidied up to a high standard afterwards. A reasonable price, a professional installation and every phase of the project well communicated. Thank you Loft Boys.

These guys know their trade. Their experience and knowledge is clear from the outset, you know they are going to do a good job. They are a little expensive but it is worth it for quality and peace of mind. Minor criticism is they offer Saturday appointments but their office is closed so if they have a staffing crisis and cancel last minute by email (which is what happened to us first time) there is no one you can talk to until Monday.

They're present to pick up on potential issues and available for any support should a staff require it whilst on duty. Please accept our apologies you weren't able to get in touch with us, until the following Monday. Thank you once again. If there is anything else you need help with, please let us know! :)
New loft hatch with aluminium ladder & boarding & new insulation
Customer Service

My existing loft hatch was very small. I asked for a new bigger hatch with a loft ladder; for the existing old insulation and boards to be removed; for new insulation & boarding of 24 square metres to be laid. The initial survey confirmed there was no asbestos in the loft and a plan was drawn up with a diagram showing exactly where the new loft hatch would be and where the boarding would be laid. I also asked for a new 6 foot strip light with switch and double power point. I was told the work would probably take 2 days. The work did indeed take just 2 days and everything was completed to schedule and budget. The electrician turned up early before the loft installers and installed the strip light with switch and double power point. Then the two installers arrived. They wore masks and proceeded to put down protective sheets over the stairs & upper & lower hallway. They explained what they were going to do and after removing all the old insulation agreed a slightly smaller (in length) loft hatch with me, taking into account where the main joist was. Two things that made "The Loft Boys" stand out for me was their five year guarantee on the work they completed and the fact that they took photos of all the work they did in order to examine it all for quality control. I was very impressed by their work which has transformed my loft and I would unhesitatingly recommend this company.

The Loft Boys gave really professional service and I'm extremely happy with the outcome. It's a strange name for a company - but I guess it's memorable! Their surveyor came, checked requirements, and measured up. He arrived on time and was very professional. No pressure selling or up-selling, just quoted for exactly what we wanted: no boarding, just insulation. He emailed the quote that afternoon, as promised. It was clear and comprehensively detailed. We agreed the quotation, and paid a deposit. The team arrived on time on the agreed date. They did a professional job - very efficient, clean and tidy. They removed any boards that were in the way (including a couple of extra ones that hadn't been in the original quote - they didn't charge extra for that), and the loft is now fully insulated to a high standard. Each stage of the job has been confirmed via email, with follow-up calls where necessary. They probably aren't the cheapest company in the world - but they have done a really good job, so will rate 5* for value. I'm still not sure that the company name isn't off-putting - but despite that, they are definitely professional and I would recommend them without reservation.

I approached loft insulation with some trepidation, given the number of cowboys out there. Loft Boys were the complete opposite from the outset. A sensible, pragmatic explanation of the options on my first call was followed up by an excellent information pack. The survey was thorough, prompt and absolutely tailored to my needs. I got a really quick fitting date and the team arrived fully informed and ready to roll. I was not convinced they would do it all in a day but they were finished by mid afternoon. I have had a really good look around and the finish was excellent - really neat and well fitted. I was most impressed by the way they fitted the new storage floor around the existing hatch. When my wife got home she thought the cleaner had come on a day early! Great team, friendly, hard working and thoughtful . I have no hesitation in recommending Loft Boys to anyone needing this service.
