Approved Loft Boarding is a division run by UK Loft Boarding Ltd and started as a property maintenance company established in 2010 run by a husband and wife team, Andy & Andrea.
We spotted a gap in the market for a quality loft storage specialist, plenty of mediocre companies doing cheap and cheerful loft boarding but not someone who actually cares about retaining or improving your homes energy efficiency. The workmanship, the quality, was just poor and it needed a company who could fill the high quality and energy efficiency demands customers want today. So in 2010, we started a loft boarding business.
From humble beginnings running our business from a just tiny back bedroom to now operating from over 4000sft offices and warehouse in the Northwest employing over 30 people and installing in excess of 3000 loft storage systems a year. We are going from strength to strength, expanding in to all areas in the North of the UK.
We are always ready to help you create a safe strong top quality storage area in your loft.
We are a dedicated company to create energy efficient loft storage solutions. Not only do we specialise in loft storage and insulation we install the most energy efficient loft hatches
combined with top quality loft access ladders.
Since 2010 our area of coverage for loft boarding has grown considerably. We now cover pretty much all of the north of england are are expanding south.
How did we get to be so successful?
We pride ourselves on only using the best quality materials we can source, and the installations are always consistently to the highest standards possible.
we will never cut back on quality or quantity just to compete with non-compliant companies, it really isn't worth ruining our reputation as the North's leading loft storage solutions provider.
Our reputation as a loft storage company is second to none, we set the bar when it comes to standards. We recently conducted some research into other companies to check out these facts and the results were no surprise really. We are the largest and most professional installer of loft storage products and solutions in the North of England, and soon to become, (if not already) the UK's market leader.
From the minute you call or email our professionally trained advisors will be ready to help you. From the information you have given we can determine what will most likely be the best loft storage solutions for you.
We have our very own bespoke enquiry management software which helps our advisors keep a track of every process you are at right through to installation.
You will be sent relevant information on your requirements pending an appointment with one of our loft storage surveyors, who will provide a detailed on-site written quote. This quote is a fixed price quote so no hidden extras, the price we say is what you pay. The surveyor will present you with a presentation pack with loads of information on loft storage and the solutions we can provide. So you know exactly how we do things and how different we are compared to others in the same industry.
We can't help it! Being a market leader we have to take ourselves very seriously in this industry so that you, the customer, get a quality job at the right money.
(We advise never to accept a quote by phone or email alone as this is not a professional way to quote for a job. How can anyone quote over the phone or by email when they haven't even been in your loft?)
At any stage you are not under any obligation to accept the quote, all we ask is to compare like for like, and if you have any questions please ask, we are here to help. We also guarantee we will beat any LIKE for LIKE quote, this is providing they are using the same make and model of materials, not cheaper inferior products and the same method of sub-frame system.
If you accept the quote we will book you in for the installation at your convenience, and as soon as possible. On the day you will be greeted at your home by uniformed, well turned out installers arriving in liveried vans and they will be carrying photo ID.
They will use protective boot covers and sheeting in the working areas so to protect your carpets from any dust and debris. Once they have finished they will clean up and give you a full demonstration. We do advise that the person requiring the work attends on the day of installation so you can receive the full demo and instructions on your new loft storage solution. Any issues occurring in the next 10 years just simply call us on 0800 8799967 and we will get one of our service vans to call to take and look and sort out any issues.

In House Staff Training & Development
It is very important to us that each member of the team is fully trained and their training is updated on a regular basis to keep up to scratch with the latest boarding techniques, products and regulations.
Any new staff joining us are subject to 6 - 8 weeks of training on-site working with other qualified installers and in the classroom until they are proficient in the art of loft storage.
I bet you're thinking right now that this seems all a bit OTT for loft boarding? Well no we are just serious about what we do and we are setting examples to other loft boarding companies across the UK. Our proven training program and skilled workforce is what made us the market leaders in loft storage solutions in the North of England.
As simple as boarding a loft may seem, we are still part of the building industry, so have to adhere to rules and regulations just like every other good building company.
We regularly hold seminars and training days so we can all get together and talk about what products are best, and what are the best techniques for designing and
installing sub-frames for boarding. We keep bang up-to-date with health and safety and make sure all our staff have their full PPE kits, fire extinguishers and first
aid kits in their vehicles.
"We live and breathe lofts, we just can't help it."
We also work to all building regulations and comply with the latest health and safety requirements and guidelines where applicable to our trade.
In 2019, we launched our own loft storage floor raised supporting leg. Although other products are
great for creating a raised loft storage platform,
because this industry is very new its still evolving at a considerable rate and we had issues with
some older modern build houses that have variable joist heights.
The only way to resolve the height difference between supporting legs was to insert packing pieces.
Our installers thought there had to be a quicker and more professional way to solve this.
Our design and management team got together, and we came up with an adjustable height leg, so
adjustments could be made for each support on the fly.
This product was to be made from coated metal and be very strong.
The LOFT-E™ raised loft leg was born.
Now we install 1000's of these legs a month. we are only fitted by qualified and factory approved installers and are not available to the general public as a DIY product.
