Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave I Good sturdy ladder
I bought one of these a number of months back but am only now doing the review as my friend bought a different brand and his is nowhere near as good. The Fakro one is sturdy and going up and down is a breeze.
Delivered right to door and installation was simple. Was very careful about cutting the length as I didn't want it too short. I've now put some flooring in the attic and have a massive new storage area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by trombino Fakro wood attic ladder is well made. Home Depot delivered on time and provided immediate ship tracking information.
Ladder is well made and sturdy. It appears to be a good value for the price. The hand rail is particularly useful, and the large, L-shaped, "allen wrench type tool" provided makes it easy to open/close door. Nice latch mechanism forces door against a seal, so no heat loss into attic during winter months. Had a contractor install, since ceiling hole in closet leading into attic needed to be enlarged around existing lighting. Attached is photo of completed installation with attic door painted white (review site rotated photo 90 degrees counter-clockwise).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PeteronCapeCod Great!
Highly recommend. Make sure you get the right size ladder when measuring. Just had a cold spell, 4 degrees, and the insulated door was not even cold!

Good quality and easy to install. Would be good if instructions included number of fasteners and size.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by carport somewhat disappointing
The promo for this ladder was great, but the instructions were awful. There was only an IKEA-like picture book with the product, and the online video had many errors. It showed the ladder as being able to be raised up to install the screws, but it did not raise up. This, the mounting with screws and shims was very precarious. There were several cracks in the wood possible due to packing and/or shipping. And there seems to be no easy way to order accessories such as ladder pads.
The product seems to work, but only by the grace of God.

Well made. Like the insulated door. Jamb are wide enough to make install easy. Returned a ladder to get this one, return product was poorly made same price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rocky Dimensions Aren't Accurate
Unit is too large for the space, despite accurate measurements. Home Depot did it's job - arrived in 2 days, unit appears to be great, if it were the size advertised.
