DIY Vs Professional Loft Boarding

When it comes to boarding your loft, there are two main options: doing it yourself, or hiring a professional. If you’re handy and have some experience with home improvement projects, doing it yourself can save you money. But if you’re not confident in your abilities, or if the project seems too daunting, hiring a professional is without a doubt the best option.

Should you board your loft yourself?

There are a few things to keep in mind if you’re planning on doing the project yourself. First, make sure you have all the necessary tools and materials. You may find the initial cost of these tools alone will already take out a substantial chunk of your budget if you was to simply hire a professional.

Take the time to familiarise yourself with the process before you start; there’s no need to rush into things and make mistakes.

As the saying goes, time is money. Completing a loft board conversion yourself would take twice as long as a pro so you will need to work out if your time is most efficiently used here.

finally, be sure to work safely, using proper ladder safety techniques and taking other precautions is necessary.

Our final thoughts

When thinking about boarding your loft, it really just comes down to time & money.

Choosing to convert your loft yourself may save you some money, but what you save in money, you lose in your time, buying new tools and learning the ropes. Additionally increasing the risk of doing the conversion wrong, to poor quality or worse, risk injuring yourself in the process.
