Our attic stair services can be standalone or included as part of our attic remodeling services. We also offer attic door installation and repair services to ensure the entire system is up to code and safe.
Once we arrive at your property and review the attic access, we’ll give you a few different options for your repair or installation. For example, some attic stair repairs are as easy as adding new stair treads or a railing. In other cases, the existing staircase may be so damaged that attic stair replacement is a better option. We’ll recommend the best options and help guide your decision based on your budget.
Folding attic ladders have many moving parts. Since they aren’t used often, these parts can corrode and stiffen up. In some cases, a simple tune-up will get your attic ladder back in action. If not, we’ll need to replace parts like springs or roller bearings. If the ladder is beyond the point of repair, we’re happy to source a replacement and install it for you.
Finally, if you don’t have a ladder at all, count on Mr. Handyman for sturdy attic ladder installation.
