Can anyone recommend someone in the Dunfermline area that will be able to enlarge a loft hatch and fit a loft ladder?

Thanks

PK Joiner 07931144846 did a great job on ours. Peter does good work at a decent price and the job he did is exactly the same as you're looking for.

If you live in a more modern build house with pre-stressed engineered roof trusses, it will be difficult to modify the hatch opening. On an older house without factory manufactured trusses no problem to modify the opening.

It's a simple DIY job if you buy 1 which a hatch and ladders to fit into the existing opening.

Surely depends where the hatch is? In a modern house I can almost guarantee the current one will be in the middle and placed between two beams (approx. 600mm wide). A bigger one would require cutting through a beam and reinforcing.
