    Construction and Framing of Attics

    The majority of attics are made with the sole purpose of framing your house’s ceiling. Before deciding to turn the attic into storage space, you will need an attic professional to inspect all the attic’s joists to make sure they can handle decking. Most attic joists were not made to hold more than just ceiling drywall.

    If you have attic joists sized as 2X6’s pr 2X8’s, they are inadequate to support any type of flooring. Even if your joists are slightly larger, they still are unable to support the additional weight. An Attic Projects technician will inspect your home’s joists to see if they have the ability to hold additional weight. If they can’t, our technician will add structural support to bring it up to code and support more weight. Before you remodel your attic, be sure to contact an attic professional today.

    Attics as an Additional Storage Unit

    If you want to use your attic for storage, an Attic Projects specialist will work with you on making sure your joists are secure enough, then lay down the proper decking. After the decking is down, the technician will work with you on what kind of access you will need to enter your attic. Most attics only have a small opening, but many lack a ladder for easy access. The technician will provide you with advice on which method is best for your attic.

    Temperatures in attics can drastically vary depending on insulation and airflow. You may not be able to store certain items without risking damage to them. Our professionals will inspect the temperature and humidity and then give you advice on what items can be stored there.

    Attics as Additional Living Space

    Ever thought about converting your unused attic to a bonus room or an extra bedroom? Attic Projects will work with you to determine whether the current structure of your attic will be able to support the extra space or not. They will also give you a detailed quote on what the project will look like and cost.

    There are lots of factors that go into converting attics into living spaces, including the current structure of the attic. Is it feasible to convert? Will you need heating, cooling, or ventilation?

    • Electrical Work

    Most attics don’t have electrical wiring for living spaces, or even for storage spaces. With Attic Projects, we will make sure that you are completely set up with any and all electrical work. Any time you need electrical work done, leave it to the professionals as it can be extremely hazardous.

    • Proper Insulation

    Not only will our professionals remove old insulation, but they will also properly install new insulation. Making sure there is proper insulation will help control the temperature for the new room, but also it will lower your electrical usage for your entire home. Once this is complete, your temperature will be much easier to control during summer and winter.

    • Attic Walls and Floors

    Because attics are typically not built for living or storage areas, the walls and floors are nothing more than framing and typically have visible joints. Many modern attics are built with trusses, but if you remove or cut the webbing, it will weaken the trusses. If this happens, you will damage the safety of the living space.

    Our professionals will inspect all the conditions of your walls and floors so we can understand the safety of your attic. They will scout for weak spots so we can accurately say that the drywall and flooring will be restored correctly and will hold the weight.

    Before Framing Your Attic

    Before we frame your attic, we may need to properly clean and sanitize the area. Some attics have unknowingly been home to rodents, pests, or other small animals. Our professionals will remove them, proof your home, and clean up any mess they left behind.

    When we clean up the waste, our professionals will use varieties of fogging and vacuuming techniques to get rid of the area of waste, properly dispose, and sanitize the area from hazardous germs and bacteria.

    Then, we will inspect the area and seal up all cracks and holes where the rodents can enter. 

    Finally, the professionals will recommend whether your attic should be professionally sanitized before you start your construction for your new attic.
