Buying the best pull-down attic stairs 101
First up, we recommend checking out one of our previous blogs for the 8 essential factors to consider when buying an attic ladder, but here’s a quick recap:
- Location and space
- Size and angle
- Load Capacity
- Opening mechanism
- Frequency of use
- Physical abilities
Pull down attic stairs for your budget
Think of this blog as
a part 2, and the way to take the eight factors above and apply it to your budget.
The big three things to consider are load, frequency of use, and physical ability.
1. Budget/Basic range: $500 – $1000
If you only plan to venture into your attic occasionally, the budget range is perfect for you. But, don’t be fooled by the term “budget” – it doesn’t mean compromising on quality!
These cost-effective ladders are perfect for attics you visit a few times a year, like when stashing your seasonal decor.
In this range, you’ll find sturdy wooden ladders that can bear loads of around 150kg and span up to 3.2 m. While they get the job done, they tend to be steeper, with small handrails and are less comfortable to climb. Which is okay if you are not climbing it very often.
2. Mid-Upgrade Range: $1000 – $2700
Are you a frequent attic visitor, going up there more than a few times a month? If so, a mid-range option might be your best bet.
Ladders in this price bracket have wider designs and can handle more significant loads, typically between 150kg and 410kg.
Here’s where you’ll start to see some of the “bells and whistles” come through, including being able to customize your options. Ladders can easily be manufactured to 5m+, have robust handrails for that extra bit of safety, and include nifty articulated hatches.
In this mid-range, you’ll also cross paths with some sleek aluminum options. So, if you’re ready to level up your attic experience, this might just be your sweet spot.
3. Premium Range: $4000+
If you’re looking to make a statement and invest in a stylish, electric, concertina aluminium ladder, the premium range is where your search ends.
These ladders are the epitome of convenience with automated features, good looks, and durability. With a focus on aesthetics, high-tech features, and strength, they’re perfect for those who want only the best.
