By around the turn of the 18th century, large houses in mainly European and American society had slanted rooftops that mimicked the style of Grecian facades. The space created in between the ceiling of the highest floor and the cornered roofs became spaces for storage or spare rooms for housekeepers. Now, we refer to these spaces as attics.
More recently built houses have attics that are accessible via a small staircase, but this may not be the case for a majority of houses with attics. Because originally the intention of attics is for them to become hidden storage, their entrances were often merely small squares, and are closed off to look like there was nothing there. And when people needed to retrieve something from the space, there was a need to use tall, unsafe ladders.
With engineering today, Attic Access Ladders don’t necessarily have to be literal ladders. They can be built-in, foldable, stair-like structures that unhinge when the entrance is pulled open. They can be built to look large and easily accessible, or they can be designed to blend in seamlessly into the house.
But finding a contractor, an engineer, or a designer that has expertise with building attic access ladders may be tricky. Not all contractors or designers may have had experience with building one before, and may not be able to properly advise you on the best type of ladder for the house or building that you need it for.
