Trussed lofts are a fairly modern roof design that utilise a frame made up triangles to support the roof where there is no wall to support the weight.
Roof lesson aside, these types of lofts are normally considered a ‘difficult’ job by many loft specialists and a great deal simply walk away! Well not here at ecoloft, we’re made of sterner stuff in yorkshire and we embrace a good challenge. We have a few tricks up our sleeve that offer you a couple of options without ever impacting on the structural integrity of your roof We can either board around the trusses to open up the space, just use the middle area by boarding off the rest of the loft or lastly we can create some very handy extra shelving in the ‘v’ of the truss.
Trusses can and often are removed much to our clients surprise. This involves a site visit from our structural engineer to work out the load calculations and a minimum of three steel beams are inserted through a newly created post hole I a gable and placed on pad stones speading the load of the roof evenly. This procedure requires building action.

Was impressed by the reviews, the quote, the confidence that they could sort out our dirty horrible loft in a day (lined package) and couldn’t help but think ‘If something seems too good to be true it usually is’! Well they left earlier today and we’re delighted by the work Ecoloft have done. Great job guys – thanks very much!Denise Yates FURTHER TESTIMONIALS
