Attic Stairs vs Attic Ladders
This is ultimately one of the most important decisions when thinking about roof conversion in Canberra. You can get a basic pull-down attic ladder installed for roughly $1000, but of course this will vary depending on the size and type of ladder. Loft stairs are always more expensive, we estimate anywhere between $3000 and $5000 depending on the timber used, the access required and finishing / detailing.
Attic Stairs are much better for the elderly, disabled or injured as they offer far more safety and support, whereas loft ladders are great for kids, but not so good when dealing with elderly and injured etc. It all comes down to your own individual requirements and situation.

Almost every home will need the roof to be re-engineered for creation of a full livable room. This is quite possible and an extension vertically is often more attractive than a horizontal one as it leaves you your yard for your lifestyle.
However, almost every house is suited to some storage space in the attic and this can be easily achieved in most cases. For installation of a top quality folding access stairway allow $ 1300 – $1700 depending on the situation and the ceiling height. Some flooring can be installed in the Attic Space to make storage easier (starting around $700 for an average area).
