Wooden Loft Ladders


Wooden loft ladders have the advantage of being sturdy and more appealing to look at. Timber products have a nicer feel and when pulling a ladder down from a cold loft space the timber rungs will feel warmer than cold metal. Wooden ladders tend to be quieter and smoother in operation than aluminium ladders. If you are going to be accessing your loft on regular basis it might make sense to opt for a ladder that is nicer to use.
