Would I be ok using plastic shims? (instead of wood shims). Any reason why one is better than the other in this case?
Asked by: blackbeardrrr
There should not be any problems using plastic shims. It might even be easier. They won’t split with a nail or screw. I’ve used both over time. Good luck.

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 4.4 out of 5 by 522.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it !! Love it !! My husband is in his 70's and every time I ask him to get me the ladder out to climb up into that attic area he always says the same thing. " The older I get the heavier this ladder gets". So I decided that before I get to old ( I'm 63 ) I will install this ladder. My husband held the regular ladder and I climbed up and followed all the instructions on line and also read the outside of ladder wrapper. It took me no time at all to prepared the opening. Anyone that can read a tape rule can do this. I called my Pastor and ask him to come and help lift it in place. He did most of the liffting (with our help) this does take 2 people but it fit great. Then we opened the ladder up and lag bolted it fast. Since Pastor was here he did that for me. But I could of done it ! After bolting we opened the ladder measured to the floor added our feet and the ladder was complete. Later we bought 1x3's and made a frame around it. Gave it some paint and done

Other than that a good ladder. Feels solid when it is extended for use. More solid than the Werner wood ladder it replaced. I especially like the pistons instead of the springs because it gives more shoulder room when entering and is much quieter. It does close a bit too quickly unless you hold onto the string. I dropped two stars because I don't think it will insulate as advertised without adding weather stripping. If I didn't think it can be fixed I would have given this 1 star because of the extra cost. In my images you can see the light shining through. It's especially bad along the edge where it opens (opposite the hinge) but the sides also have gaps where you can see the light coming through. The frame is square so it is not from being askew. If they used the same design as the older ladder where the door fit over the entire frame it would be much better and have a cleaner look. For this price I expect a seal as good as a refrigerator door.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good ladder I bought this ladder to end the nightmare of climbing a very large stepladder and then pulling myself up into a very small opening to gain access to my attic (it's in the garage with a 10' ceiling). Since I spray the attic twice a year, it was getting dangerous getting up there - my wife refused to let me do it unless she was there to hold the ladder. I had the attic ladder professionally installed, which took about 2 hours to completion which included trim. The only reason I gave 4 stars for quality was after going up the steps I realized the last portion of the steps are against the plywood door. Therefore it is impossible to get solid footing on the last few steps, as only the toes of your feet can rest on each step. Also there is no handle to grip at the top like there are on other models. But I knew that, I just wanted the insulated ladder. Other than these points, it is an excellent ladder which feels very study. At last I can gain access to my attic without the fear of falling. I just wish I had made the purchase several years ago.

I was impressed with the thick insulated door with weather seals that keep out attic heat. But the hinge assembly appears to be misaligned in the drilling process when built in factory, not allowing the seal on one side to contact the inside of the door, visibly off center, whereas the other side rubs the outer frame wall. I called the company and was promised a call back with some solution to no avail. An easy fix for now would be to shim out the seal attachment strip at this point. And the folding arms that support the ladder when fully open, are rather flimsy and will bend and catch, and even keep the door from opening fully without prying inside the edge of door with a long screwdriver to release. I was expecting a vast improvement over the original contractor grade wooden attic ladder, but these problems are a disappointment. The ladder itself is very nice, but there is not much foot insertion space against the door, only allowing front of the foot to reach into ladder rungs, a risk of foot slippage. Installation instructions are very good and if you follow precisely it installs securely and safely. You will at one point need 2 people, one should be up in attic.

Note: on a 9' 3" height ceiling, the completed installation is at the height and strength limits of an average women. Pull handle is a bit small and uncomfortable - should be larger. BIG CRITICISM: Requires the installer to separately source/provide two 32x4x1" planks and screw them to the edges of the gap for safe installation. Instead of wasting the installer's time, Werner should increase the price by a few dollars and include the two planks with pilot holes plus screws in the kit. In addition the recommended 52.5" distance between the plank edges is only marginally safe; we decreased the installation risk by reducing this to 52". Finally, follow the advice to adjust/shim the two diagonals to be equal before lag screwing the assembly into place.

I purchased this product at my local Home Depot and made arrangements we a carpenter friend to install it. When he arrived and unpacked the item, we discovered that it had mold on the wood frame and door. The ladder frame also was not square. The inside of the packaging showed evidence of having been wet (but was not wet/damp at the time). Because I had my installer there and because the store I bought this at was 45 minutes away, I could not ask my installer to wait over an hour and a half for me to return this item for a new one (with no guarantee there was a "clean" item in store). We applied straight bleach to the moldy area and my installer worked like a champ to get the attic ladder in place and secured. I went back to the store where I made this purchase and the service personnel advised me to write this review and post pictures. I am happy with the product now that it is up and usable. I am not happy with the quality of this Werner product as packaged and delivered to my local Home Depot.

Good instructions made do it yourself installation easy to do by 2 senior citizens. The unit is exactly 22 inches wide so I had to use a hydraulic jack to widen the space between my ceiling joists by 1/4 inch. That was the only difficulty. I found that the seal at the non-hinge end did not quite overlap the door when closed so I added a 1/4 spacer behind it and everything works well now. CAUTION: the lag bolts provided assume that you have the standard 22.5 inch hole; if yours is narrower, be careful not to thread the screws into hidden wires on the other side of your joists. The door is made with a nice smooth plywood which was easy to paint. We find this ladder easy and comfortably safe to use.
