The first step is having an attic specialist thoroughly inspect your existing framework. Most attics are designed solely to support ceiling drywall and insulation. The wood joists often cannot handle flooring or heavy storage items without reinforcements.
Our structural experts can determine load capacity by evaluating your joist size and spacing. For instance, joists smaller than 2x8s typically cannot support decking. If your attic needs structural improvements to handle a remodel, our team can install new joists or sister existing ones to provide adequate support.
Transforming your attic into a storage room involves adding flooring over the joists so you can walk around and place boxes. The specialist will ensure the framework can handle the weight before laying sturdy plywood or OSB decking.
You’ll also need an easy way in and out. Hatch ladders or pull-down staircases can be installed to access attic storage rooms. Just be mindful of temperature extremes before storing valued items. Consult the technician on insulation and ventilation to maintain a safe storage environment.
Do you dream of adding a bedroom, playroom, or office in your attic? The right structure and design can make this possible. Attic specialists determine the feasibility based on your existing framework. If deemed structurally sound, the next step is planning essential amenities like heating, cooling, plumbing, and electricity.
Skylights and dormers allow natural light while preserving a cozy, secluded feel that is perfect for living spaces. Proper insulation also helps regulate temperature. With some creativity, your attic can gain a whole new purpose.
Almost all attic remodels require installing adequate electrical circuits and lighting. Most attics lack enough power, even for basic storage lighting. Upgrading breaker boxes and running new wiring must be handled by licensed electricians. They ensure all circuits meet codes and are grounded for safety.
Consider adding outlets, switches, recessed lighting, and ceiling fans to make attic living or storage spaces fully functional.
Before framing new walls or laying flooring, attics will be sealed and sanitized to prevent rodents from getting in. . Inspectors check for signs of squirrels, bats, rats, or other wildlife nesting in attics. Any droppings or contamination must be safely removed to prevent disease.
Entry points like gaps along the roofline get sealed shut to permanently block access. Attics may also be fogged or deep cleaned as needed before remodeling.
Typically, attic walls and floors are framed with exposed joints and rafters. To finish these surfaces for living spaces, technicians first reinforce the framework. This prevents sagging or instability in walls and ceilings later on.
If your attic has trusses, the inspector checks that the webbing remains intact. Compromised trusses require structural repair. With framework corrections, drywall and flooring can be applied over solid, reinforced surfaces.
