UK Loft Boarding Ltd
started as a property maintenance company back in 2010. Run by a husband and wife team, Andy
& Andrea Greenhalgh.
They 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 and finding the best way to create a safe and strong storage platform.
The workmanship and the quality of some companies was just poor and it needed a company who could fill the high quality and energy efficiency demands customers want today.
So in 2010, they started their loft boarding business.
From humble beginnings running their business from a just tiny back bedroom to now operating from over 6000sqft offices and warehouse in the Northwest employing 30+ people and installing in excess of 4000 loft storage systems a year. They are going from strength to strength, have now expanded to completely cover the North of England.
All their staff are highly trained and monitored and are always ready to help you create a safe strong top quality storage area in your loft at the price to suit your pocket.
HOW DID THEY GET TO BE SO SUCCESSFUL?
Well, quite a few reasons really. They pride themselves on only using the best quality materials they can source, and they've spent a lot of time sourcing simply to pass on any discount to their customers. Also, the installations are always consistently to the highest standards possible. They also carry out random inspections on their installers to ensure constantly high quality workmanship. They also never cut back on quality or quantity just to compete with non-compliant companies. They do everything they can to keep their reputation as the North's leading loft storage solution providers. Their reputation as a loft storage company is second to none, they set the bar when it comes to high standards.
They recently conducted some research into other companies to check out these facts, and the results were
no surprise really.
No one is coming close, but a lot do try to emulate them. They check daily on the competition and see
what latest products or ideas are about.
UK Loft Boarding 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.

HONEST & PROFESSIONAL FROM START TO FINISH
Being a market leader, we have to take ourselves very serious in this industry so that you, the
customer, get a quality job at the right cost.
We advise never to accept a quote by phone or email alone, as this is not a professional way to quote for a job. Seriously, how can anyone quote over the phone or by email when we haven't even been in your loft?.
At any stage of the survey process, you are not under any obligation to accept the quote. All we ask is to compare like for like; sometimes things may look the same at a glance, but we are completely different in quality and quantity when looked at in detail.
Please, if you have any questions just ask, we are here to help.
We also guarantee we will beat any LIKE for LIKE quote. This is providing we 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.
Also as an added extra, something that no other company does is our installers are randomly spot checked by our installation manager, for your added peace of mind that our high standards never drop.
The installers will use protective boot covers and sheeting in the working areas, so to protect your
carpets from any dust and debris.
Once we have finished, we 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 a look and sort out any issues.
Once an installation is complete you will get a 10 year written guarantee emailed to you.

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
Installers and in the classroom, until we are proficient in the art of loft storage. Once we achieve this, they qualify as a factory approved installer with LOFT-E and LoftZone.
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. The methods we are now using to launch our UK network are our tried and tested ways of ensuring the best experience for our customers.
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 meetings and training days, so we can all get together and talk about what
products are best, and what are the best techniques
for installing safe, strong and raised sub-frames for loft storage.
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. In fact, all our installers are regularly randomly spot checked every week to make sure no standards are dropping. No other loft storage company does this.
We also comply to any building regulations, and also comply with the latest health and safety requirements and guidelines where applicable to our trade.
I come from an old-fashioned self-employed background. As a child, I watched my parents perform in their business giving great customer service and never giving in to selling cheap alternatives to compete. we had one of the best reputations in Lancashire for quality products and great service. Because of this, I carried this tradition on into my business, I believe in being honest and giving the customer the best quality products and a great service at the best possible price.
Andy Greenhalgh, the Managing Director
UK Loft Boarding joined forces in 2014 with the manufacturer of one of the main loft storage products the company uses in its installations. LoftZone Raised Loft Floor, which allows the construction of a raised loft floor above the insulation level to avoid squashing or removal of the insulation in accordance with building regulations part L.
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
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
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.
