When Stetten Home Services began providing weatherization of attics and crawlspaces we were surprised with how eager people would be to utilize these spaces, and how creative they were. All homes are unique, even track-homes, because the owners personalize things. There is a growing trend of people needing more storage. Stetten Home Services has various storage strategies that will be unique to your home and exactly what you need, not only that but we build smart and efficient spaces that you will use for years to come.
Shown below are some of the photos that depict what we commonly offer/provide to homeowners needing more storage space:
We like to add a safety & functionality as we weatherize. Truthfully, attic storage and energy efficiency can be at direct odds with the other. Attic cleanliness is extremely hard to achieve when fiberglass, cellulose, or rock-wool are exposed. There are lots of things to consider.
We do get calls from people who added insulation last week and want new bath-fans this week. and a place for all their luggage. The order of all of this matters immensely to the appearance/performance of the final outcome.
This strategy of attic flooring is simplified. The sheets are delivered ripped in half or into thirds. We scab on new lumber to match the elevation of the platform that existed and it sure feel like it stabilizes the trusses. The weight of workmen will be distributed to all the joists rather than a single joist.
