Answer: 
The recommended opening for this ladder is 22 1/2" x 54". There are instructions, in the ladder packaging, that tell you how to frame a larger opening. The 23 1/2" width will have to be shimmed when bolting the ladder into place. The instruction booklet will tell you how to do that as well.

Answer: 
The framework dimensions of the ladder box are 53-1/4 inches by 22 inches. The rough opening requirements are to allow the ladder to be placed in the opening, with room for shimming and adjusting the ladder.

Answer: 
Yes, the instruction provided show where it can be cut. The lower portion has scribe marks for the correct placement. As the ladder is aluminum, a good hacksaw will do the job.

Answer: 
If you go below the specified minimum, you have to cut above the last step leaving the bottom hinged element with no lateral support. I believe you could use it with a 7' or lower ceiling by completely removing the lower segment, but this would require drilling out six rivets and would almost certainly void any warranty.

The height from my floor to the attic door is about 8 feet. Will I have to cut this ladder or does it extend and go in on it's own based on height?

8 ft. - 10 ft., 22.5 in. x 54 in. Energy Seal Aluminum Attic Ladder Universal Fit with 375 lb. Maximum Load Capacity is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 126.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it. The reason this ladder is more expensive than the regular model is because it has a small black rubber gasket around where it seals when your shut/close the ladder. Just make sure you install it nice and square or else it won't seal properly. AND you'll probably have to cut some off the bottom of the aluminum legs to fit your specific indoor clear height. I had to. No biggie though. I would give it 5 stars but no one ever reads 5 star reviews and I wanted you to read this one ; ) Good luck!

After making sure everything was square and level the lag bolts were installed, but when closing the door there is a noticeable air gap where one corner of the door meets the seal. We checked everything to make sure nothing shifted while installing the bolts but it all looked good. After a few measurements it turns out to be a manufacturer defect. The door jam seal is about 1/8" higher on one end causing the door to warp resulting in an air gap. This pretty much defeats the purpose of the more expensive "energy seal" door. I would return it but it's installed now, and I am currently thinking of a way to fix the air gap.

Although the ladder is aluminum it is not as sturdy / solid as I expected it to be it is somewhat flimsy, Yes it will get the job done & it's better than the wood unit I replaced but buyer be aware the ladder is not as wide or as solid as one would expect. With more use I will revaluate just how the unit holds up. Installation is standard by that I mean if your a handy kind o guy it should be no problem but it is a two man job only due to weight and awkward size but this goes for any model of this type o ladder. You will need a finish molding to frame once installed because the pulldown "door" does sit lower than the ceiling finish, what is flush with the ceiling is the "frame" of the unit. As for the pull down mechanism, for the little I've used it, it seems smooth & retracts smooth & tight to the weather seal built into the unit. There are 4 exposed chrome carriage bolts not bad looking but FYI, why there not flush mount or countersunk I don't know.

This was a well constructed ladder and was pretty easy for me to install by myself. Mine fit within my trim work so I didn't have to re-do it. It also has a rubber seal that is supposed to make the seal better for insulation purposes. I live in FL and both Garage and Attic are about 100 degrees, so really doesn't do anything but make the door close quieter. It was the only one in stock so I bought it anyway. Probably $20 more than the next step down? Highly recommend the aluminum ladder over the wood. Holds a lot more weight as you are carrying heavy stuff up. Remember to buy wood shims and 2 3/4 to 3" drywall screws to install. You'll also need two boards the wider than the opening to screw to the ceiling so that you can temporarily hold the ladder in place while you secure it. Watch a you tube video before you do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product. This was the first time I've ever installed an attic ladder. If you've ever installed a door before, this is very similar. Moderately difficult because you're working overhead and in an un-climate controlled attic. Other than that, it was pretty simple.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Product with no Warranty Our contractor purchased and installed this attic door. After it was installed we observed that the door did not seal to warping and poor quality fabrication. Werner claims it was our fault for installing their poor quality product in the first place without a thorough home owner inspection. I thought we were buying a quality attic door but instead it was junk. I would stay away from this product. Also, there is no US service support - it is all in the Philippines. I regret buying their product.

Despite some minor damage to the wooden frame that became visible only after the product was removed from its packaging, the ladder was relatively easy to install by someone with only modest DIY experience. The 22.5 in. width would be pretty narrow for some larger individuals or for moving large items into the attic. Since I've only had it a couple of weeks, the durability remains to be seen, but it seems sturdy enough up to this point. I like the aluminum ladder better than similar ladders made of wood that I have known in the past. The aluminum is just as strong, but much lighter in weight.
