Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimK Should have bought this long ago
We have a HUGE 17x36 loft above our new garage but plans call for a standard stairway someday to reach it. After 4 years of using a ladder to access it for storage, it dawned on me to use an attic ladder until the day when we get around to a full stairway system. This was such an easy cure to our access problem. I reduced in size our stairway opening to fit the attic ladder and only needed a 2nd person when it was time to lift the unit up into that area. Once in place, it bolted right up nice and tight. Our whole family loves being able to use our loft now. Great product. Directions were spot on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by arboruser13 Nice, sold, sturdy ladder.
We replaced a 20+ year old wood ladder. This one is so nice and sturdy. The only thing I noticed I thought was odd was the wood 'door' the ladder is on is about 1/2 the thickness of our old attic ladder. My contractor said it was a sturdier type of wood, but as 'female' of the house, I would have thought thicker is better, regardless. Either way, LOVE the ladder. Even I will use it now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kate Really sturdy attic ladder
We wanted to replace our builders grade attic ladder with something more sturdy since we are big people. We are thrilled with the quality and sturdiness of the ladder. We did not install it ourselves, but the installer said it went in really easily (we paid $225 to have it installed). We did use the Werner videos to know how to measure the existing hole and make sure we bought the right the ladder. I know the video covers the whole install process, but it was beyond our abilities.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blue Great buy. Rated for higher weight
We looked at cheaper alternatives, but this one ended up being the best purchase. it was lighter, it was the wider entrance, which will accommodate us when we run things up to the attic, but also accommodated our construction crew as they traversed up and down into the attic. The higher weight rating (375 lbs) was crucial because we had to bring down large sections of old cast iron vent pipes.
Only con, a couple lag screws were hard to reach during installation...but a bit patience and elbow grease got the job done.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by staticgenerator Wow, what an improvement!!
I just finished the installation of my new attic ladder and I am thrilled with the results! In my case I was able to install it by myself, but I would not recommend this unless you are tall (I'm 6'4")and able to lift the ladder up into the attic and then ease it down onto the temporary supports. To do this required the use of a 6 ft step ladder and the removal of the ties holding the ladder in place, not a task for the faint of heart, because once the ladder is being carefully lifted into the attic there is no turning back without eating a rather heavy attic ladder. Installation was very straightforward. I needed quite a bit of shimming on the sides mostly just to fill the gaps between my framing and the ladder framing, but it was easy to square. I used spray foam to fill the gaps. After installation was complete, I trimmed around it with 1x4, primed the whole exterior and painted to match my ceiling. I didn't use the provided pull cord but instead installed a large cabinet knob. It was so nice to finally replace the old, wobbly, concrete counterweighted nightmare that was original to our house. A great deal at a great price!!

I had to replace hallway attic ladder door. Make sure you measure the opening door. Being a single woman I thought one size fit all.Not the case.I orginally purchase the smaller opening and had to pay 10.00 more for this one. I really like this latter versus the wood.. It seems to be very sturdy..I don't have to worry next time a big guy has to go up my attic..The price was the best. It took 2 pros 3 hours to put up and that includes taking the first door back to home depot and paint..Lastly make sure you paint before you install.Thanks Home Depot for a great latter at a great price.
