Yes, depending on the height required to build the sub-frame storage floor above any cables, light fittings, pipes, or loft insulation we use either a timber raised double self-supporting sub-frame, which is mainly for houses 50+ years with a purlin style roof or for more modern properties (Within the last 50 years) with a truss-style roof we use LOFT-E raised storage floor system. This raises the new storage floor to a more suitable level to avoid loft insulation compression, especially in newly built properties with government-recommended insulation levels being 270mm high.

 

Compressing your loft insulation is a bad idea. It will reduce your home’s energy efficiency considerably and may even cause damp and condensation issues. Removing it is not an option either as this will leave an area that will lose heat quicker and start to cost you money on your heating bills.
