Understanding Attic Stairs and Door Installation

Attic stairs give a homeowner an easy and safe way to get into their attic. This allows you to take advantage of otherwise unusable space, storing things in your attic and freeing up closet space. When your attic ladder becomes old or worn out, it can be a significant danger. Whether you need to install attic stairs for the first time or you need to replace your existing set, it’s crucial to work with a team you can trust. Mr. Handyman of Princeton and Robbinsville has experience installing attic stairs in Princeton and Robbinsville, New Jersey. Our local team will work with you every step of the way, answering questions, keeping you informed, and getting the job done right. Learn more about our attic stairs and door installation services.

What Kind of Attic Stairs Should I Install?

Most people don’t think about the different types of attic stairs available to them. However, there are several different kinds of attic stairs. Each is suited for certain situations, and when selecting the attic stairs to install for your home, it’s helpful to know the difference between each type. Our friendly handymen will discuss the different kinds and help you make the right choice when they meet with you to plan your installation. Some of the most commonly used attic stairs include:

  • Folding Attic Stairs – This is one of the most commonly used types of attic stairs because of its simple mechanism and reliability. Folding attic stairs pull down and unfold in several hinged sections (typically three or four sections).
  • Telescoping Attic Stairs – When installing attic stairs in a tight spot, telescoping attic stairs are a useful choice. Instead of unfolding, these stairs slide into place and extend to the floor.
  • Scissor-Style Attic Stairs – With chic style and an advanced design, scissor-style stairs unfold in an accordion-like fashion. This gives scissor-style stairs the ability to work perfectly in attics with small or oddly shaped openings.

How to Choose the Right Attic Stairs

When installing new attic stairs, there is a lot to consider. Each attic is slightly different, and you need to make sure that you choose a set of stairs that will work well in your space. At Mr. Handyman of Princeton and Robbinsville, we provide a personal touch. So, we’ll ensure that we are installing a set of stairs that will suit your needs and fit your space. However, there are a few things that you should think about ahead of time, including:

  • The shape and size of your attic opening
  • The distance from the attic to the floor
  • The direction in which you want the stairs to extend
  • The amount of weight the stairs will need to support
