Top Attic Ladder Installation related questions

How does an attic ladder work?

An attic ladder is a foldable ladder that sits inside the opening to your loft. When you open the hatch of your attic, you can fold down the ladder for easy access.

Can I install an attic ladder myself?

While some people choose to DIY their attic ladder installation, it’s a job best left to an experienced handyman. That’s because loft ladder installation requires a range of tools and expertise in building so that the ladder not only looks perfect but operates safely.

Does a contractor need any specific qualifications to install attic ladders?

While attic ladder installation doesn’t require any specific qualifications, many installers are qualified carpenters with advanced skills in woodworking. If you need any electricals done as part of your installation, however, you will need to engage a licensed electrician to install them.

How do you measure for an attic ladder?

You’ll need to measure the opening to ensure it’s the right width for your ladder to fold into, plus measure the height of the ladder once it’s extended from floor to ceiling.

How long does it take to install a loft ladder?

The time it takes to install a loft ladder will depend on whether your technician needs to cut a hole in your ceiling and whether you need a loft ladder and hatch installed, or just the ladder. Most installations will take 3-6 hours.

How much does it cost to install an attic ladder?

The cost of loft ladder installation is usually between $176-$375 when you book your service on Airtasker. But this price may be higher or lower depending on the type of ladder you’ve chosen, whether you need any extra services, and the time it takes to install it.

What does an attic ladder installation include?

Attic ladder installation includes everything from cutting a hole in your ceiling to measuring the height of the ladder and fitting the ladder in place. They’ll carry out each step of the installation with care and precision, including:

Step 1: Measuring and cutting

Your loft ladder installer will start by measuring the space, checking the hole in your ceiling to make sure it’s big enough to fit the ladder. They may cut a hole in your ceiling if you don’t already have one or extend your current hole if needed. They’ll check to make sure there are no cables or plumbing pipes above before making any cuts in your ceiling. If there are panels above where your attic access is, they’ll cut these panels (provided they’re not structural panels) to make a gap, allowing your ladder to fit.

Step 2: Fitting the ladder

Once your space is measured and prepared, your attic ladder installer will fit the ladder in the hole. This will include temporarily installing the ladder to make sure everything fits, and that the hatch can be opened and closed properly. They’ll also check that the ladder can be folded up into the ceiling before they drill all the pieces in place.

Step 3: Adjusting the height of the ladder

The final step of your loft ladder and latch installation is to measure the length the ladder needs to be. Most attic ladders come full length and need to be cut down to suit the height of your ceiling. Your technician will extend the ladder fully and measure how much needs to be taken off the ends before cutting it to the right length. They’ll add stoppers to the ends to protect your floors from sharp edges. Once your ladder is installed, your technician will test the ladder themselves and do a final check to make sure it can be pulled down and accessed with ease.

Install attic ladder


Carindale QLD, Australia

2nd Apr 2018

I need an Werner AH2210AZ aluminium attic ladder to be installed. It will be going into our laundry room, where there is presently no manhole. The roof material is gyprock (i.e. no asbestos). Ceiling joists are running in the right direction and have the right separation to install the attic ladder in between them. However there is a piece of wood running on top and perpendicular to the joists (near the top of the photo, running horizontally) - I am unsure it significance but expect it will need to be cut and replaced. The electrical cables in the photo have sufficient slack to run around the area. Nail up trim to cover gaps once ladder is fit. I'll be on hand and can assist with lifting etc. if required. Pretty flexible with timing - ideally sometime in April.

Greg was friendly and obliging, and he did a very thorough job.

Install attic ladder and lay formply 30 sheets


Glebe NSW, Australia

31st Jan 2019

This is NOT an attic conversion into a room, just storage space. I have purchased an excellent used Junior Columbus Ladder and second hand 30 sheets of form ply. The ladder has timber noggins around the frame of the ladder. I would like the ladder installed in my hallway ceiling and 30 sheets of form ply nailed to the floor. You will need to cut a hole in the ceiling. Ceiling height is 3.26m. Form ply 2.4mx0.6m My partner can help with moving sheets to the attic. The ladder came off a ceiling 3.9m so we need to remove a few steps off the ladder. The whole house has just been rewired and only the pendant light wiring remain in attic. All power point wiring have been relocated to the side of the house.

On time, reliable and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend to use him again.

Repair to Attic Ladder


Marrickville NSW, Australia

11th Dec 2020

This job really requires a builder/carpenter who really knows what they’re doing. My attic ladder recent separated from the piece of wood that held it securely in the ceiling. An unskilled handyman made a real mess of a repair and whilst it now works it looks really bad. Unfortunately this job is considered too small for most tradespeople and companies that make and sell attic ladders want to sell me a new ladder as well. So I’m hoping this post might help me find someone with the right skills who is willing to do a smallish job. I cante seem to select the date I need it done by but late Jan would be great.

Soon did an outstanding job. He also was really lovely to deal with. I would very strongly recommend Soon. His attention to detail is a real asset.
