A: Attic Dek Universal was perfect to add a walkway to a portion of our attic and a LOT easier than buying 4' x 8' sheets of plywood, getting them cut to fit in our Tesla Model S and 2' x 2' attic access. However it is EXPEN$IVE per sq. ft. so doing 1/2 an attic won't be cheap, but it is a LOT easier to install and weighs a LOT less too.
A: I purchased several of the attic flooring pieces. They are easy to install and sturdy. The only con is that they are expensive if you are trying to cover a large area. My advice on attic ladders is to note the width if you have an air handler or water heater in your attic. Many of the new attic ladders carried by the big box retailers are only 18” wide which are too narrow to allow passage of larger items.
A: resistant to Orlando, florida temperature.
A: NO the Attic Dek Universal (4-Pack) are ONLY made for 16 in. or 24 in. on center joist spacing... Not 48 in (4 feet). 4 foot joist spacing sounds like it was only made to tie your garage roof together... NOT carry weight. I'd suggest you consult with a structural engineer to see if you can simply "double" the joists by adding a joist next to your existing joists... and adding additional joists at 24 in. on center (or 2 joists at 16 in. on center) between your existing joists to increase your garage joist load carrying capacity... and ENABLING you to install Attic Dek to your new 16 in. or 24 in. joists.
A: No. You’re better off scabbing 2x4s to the side of the existing joists, or whatever is in your attic area, then cutting 2x4s to for the floor.
A: Hello, I didn’t end up using these due to pot lights in ceiling being taller than joists. I you have pot lights in your ceilings they won’t work
A: 24" is the longest length and 16" is the shortest length.
