We’re pleased to announce that Access4Lofts is now the preferred installer of the ‘Loft Leg‘ system.
The ‘Loft Leg’ system is a unique design protected solution to avoid insulation compression when boarding your loft for storage. It is therefore ideal for use in ‘new build’ properties where the insulation has been installed to the government recommendation of 270mm to achieve a U value of 0.16 (www.energysavingtrust.org.uk).
Access4Lofts and Loft Leg have often been asked whether installing a system such as ‘Loft Leg’ would invalidate the NHBC warranty on new builds and have therefore created a ‘new house information pack’ that separates fact from fiction and gives clear advice on whether installing a raised loft storage system such as Loft Leg would have any effect on the NHBC warranty.
Here at Access4Lofts Stafford, we love transforming unloved lofts into easily accessible, useful storage spaces.
To help you organise your loft, we’ve created these top 10 tips to tidying your loft.

Acording to the National Insulation Association up to a third of the heat in your home could be lost through your loft. The current recommended depth of loft insulation is 270mm (10.5inches).
Don’t worry if you want to use your loft for storage once it has been insulation because Access4Lofts can ensure any storage solution is fitted above your loft insulation.
The following table is taken from the National Insulation Association and illustrates the potential savings you could make by ensuring your insulation is up to current standards:
