Straight Flight Loft Staircase

This is a partial example, from a staircase installation in Warrington, Cheshire. The pictures show the basic skills and technique used when creating a straight flight of stairs for an existing loft/attic room.

Loft stairs only

The example shown was completed to a high standard - plastered and finished, however the pictures demonstrate only the key stages in building a loft staircase.


Procedure (How to..)

  1. The ceiling aperture is created by removal of boarding and floor joists - the existing joists are reinforced to prevent any ceiling sag and to take the weight of the stairs.
  2. Installation of the stair strings - these are the key supports to the steps. Accurate planning and measuring is essential because building regulations cover stairs, and if the strings are not aligned exactly the same then the steps will appear and feel unbalanced and awkward (a trip hazard)
  3. The position of all the treads (horizontal) and risers (vertical) are marked out
  4. The stair frame is installed to distribute and support the weight on the stairs
  5. The treads and risers are installed
  6. The stairs are enclosed and boarded, corner beading attached and given a plaster skim
