About Us

The Market Leaders in Loft Storage Solutions

Midlands Loft Boarding was created from a general property maintenance company in 2010. Run by husband and wife team, Andy & Andrea Greenhalgh. They spotted a gap in the market for a quality loft storage specialist. So, in 2010 with a van and a bag of tools, the company was established as a loft boarding specialist. (In 2016 they formed a limited company known as UK Loft Boarding Ltd, to group all the area branches they have in the UK so they are all under one umbrella.
They now operate their business from their head office and warehouse in Accrington, Lancashire.
They specialise in providing top quality loft storage solutions all over the North or England, and in 2020 they have huge plans to expand throughout the rest of the UK. Starting with just the two of them, they now boast a strong team of 30+ professionals, four branches and of course, 3 dogs.
Everyone at Midlands Loft Boarding are fully trained and experienced in loft storage solutions and are always ready to help you create a safe strong top-quality storage area in your loft.

How did they get to be so successful?

Well, quite a few reasons really. They pride ourselves on only using the best quality materials they can source, and they've spent a lot of time sourcing supplies to pass on any discounts to their customers.
Also, the installations are always consistently to the highest standards possible. They also carry out random inspections on their approved installers to ensure that they never cut back on quality or quantity just to compete with non-compliant companies. They do everything they can to keep their reputation as the UK's leading loft storage solutions provider. Their reputation as a loft storage company is second to none, they set the bar when it comes to standards. Lots of investment in training and monitoring installer progress.

They recently conducted some research into other companies to check out these facts, and the results were no surprise really. No one is coming close, but a lot do try to emulate them. we check daily on the competition and see what latest products or ideas are about.
Midlands Loft Boarding are the largest and most professional installer of loft storage products and solutions in the UK.

The Process

From the minute you call or email, our professionally trained advisors will be ready to help you. From the information you have given, we can determine what will most likely be the best loft storage solution for you. We have our very own bespoke enquiry management software, which helps our advisors keep a track of every step right through to installation and guarantee records. Initially you will be sent relevant information on your requirements pending an appointment with one of our trained and experienced loft storage surveyors, who will provide a detailed on-site written quote. This is a fixed price quote so no hidden extras, the price we say is what you pay. The surveyor will present you with a presentation pack with loads of information on loft storage and the solutions we can provide. So you know exactly how we do things, you can see how we are far superior to others in the same industry. Value for money whilst retaining high quality products, services and professionalism.

HONEST & PROFESSIONAL FROM START TO FINISH

Being a market leader, we have to take ourselves very serious in this industry so that you, the customer, get a quality job at the right cost. We advise never to accept a quote by phone or email alone, as this is not a professional way to quote for a job. Seriously, how can anyone quote over the phone or by email when we haven't even been in your loft?.
At any stage of the survey process, you are not under any obligation to accept the quote. All we ask is to compare like for like; sometimes things may look the same at a glance, but we are completely different in quality and quantity when looked at in detail. Please, if you have any questions just ask, we are here to help. We also guarantee we will beat any LIKE for LIKE quote. This is providing we are using the same make and model of materials, not cheaper inferior products and the same method of sub-frame system. If you accept the quote, we will book you in for the installation at your convenience, and as soon as possible. On the day, you will be greeted at your home by uniformed, well turned out installers arriving in liveried vans. Also as an added extra, something that no other company does is our installers are randomly spot checked by our installation manager, for you added peace of mind that our high standards never drop.

The installers will use protective boot covers and sheeting in the working areas, so to protect your carpets from any dust and debris. Once we have finished, we will clean up and give you a full demonstration. We do advise that the person requiring the work attends on the day of installation, so you can receive the full demo and instructions on your new loft storage solution. Any issues occurring in the next 10 years just simply call us on 0800 8799967 and we will get one of our service vans to call to take and look and sort out any issues. Once an installation is complete you will get a 10 year written guarantee emailed to you.

In House Staff Training & Development

In house loft boarding staff training

It is very important to us that each member of the team is fully trained and their training is updated on a regular basis, to keep up to scratch with the latest boarding techniques, products and regulations.

Any new staff joining us are subject to 6 - 8 weeks of training, on-site working with other Qualified
Installers and in the classroom, until we are proficient in the art of loft storage.


I bet you're thinking right now that this seems all a bit OTT for loft boarding? Well no, we are just serious about what we do and we are setting examples to other loft boarding companies across the UK. Our proven training program and skilled workforce, is what made us the market leaders in loft storage solutions in the North of England. The methods we are now using to launch our UK network are our tried and tested ways of ensuring the best experience for our customers.

As simple as boarding a loft may seem, we are still part of the building industry, so have to adhere to rules and regulations just like every other good building company.

We regularly hold meetings and training days, so we can all get together and talk about what products are best, and what are the best techniques for installing safe, strong and raised sub-frames for loft storage. We keep bang up-to-date with health and safety, and make sure all our staff have their full PPE kits, fire extinguishers and first aid kits in their vehicles and including Covid compliance PPE. In fact, all our installers are regularly randomly spot checked every week to make sure no standards are dropping. No other loft storage company does this.

"We live and breathe lofts; we just can't help it."


We also work with all building regulations, and comply with the latest health and safety requirements and guidelines where applicable to our trade.

Andy Greenhalgh, the Managing Director commented:
I come from an old-fashioned self-employed background. As a child, I watched my parents perform in their business giving great customer service and never giving in to selling cheap alternatives to compete. we had one of the best reputations in Lancashire for quality products and great service. Because of this, I carried this tradition on into my business, I believe in being honest and giving the customer the best quality products and a great service at the best possible price.

Midlands Loft Boarding joined forces in 2014 with the manufacturer of one of the main loft storage products the company uses in its installations. LoftZone Raised Loft Floor, which allows the construction of a raised loft floor above the insulation level to avoid squashing or removal of the insulation in accordance with building regulations part  L.

In 2019, we launched our own loft storage floor raised supporting leg LOFT-E®. Although other products are great for creating a raised loft storage platform, because this industry is very new its still evolving at a considerable rate and we had issues with some older modern build houses that have variable joist heights. The only way to resolve the height difference between supporting legs was to insert packing pieces. Our installers thought there had to be a quicker and more professional way to solve this.
Our design and management team got together, and we came up with an adjustable height leg, so adjustments could be made for each support on the fly. This product was to be made from coated metal and be very strong.
The LOFT-® raised loft leg was born. Now we install 1000's of these legs a month. we are only fitted by qualified and factory approved installers and are not available to the general public as a DIY product.
