BBA Approval and NHBC Warranty

BBA Approval

Is there a connection between BBA Approval and the NHBC Warranty?

There has been a considerable amount of misleading information circulating online regarding the relationship between BBA approval and the NHBC (National House Building Council) warranty in regard to loft boarding systems. Some companies misleadingly claim that BBA approval is in some way the only way to comply with the NHBC warranty. However, it is important to set the record straight and provide accurate information.


Firstly, it is crucial to note that BBA approval is only required for products intended for installation during the construction of homes. Since loft boarding falls within the realm of home improvement which often happens once the home is already complete, BBA approval is not a mandatory requirement. LOFT-E® is not BBA approved however it still conforms to the NHBC guidelines, here’s why:


The LOFT-E® Adjustable loft leg serves the purpose of raising the boarding above the insulation hence not affecting what is already in your loft space, leading to improved performance of the insulation itself. By avoiding compression of the insulation, the loft leg ensures optimal effectiveness and energy efficiency. By doing this we confirm to the NHBC guidelines. Boarding directly to the roof joists and compressing the insulation will void your NHBC warranty.


To summarize, it is essential to base your evaluation on the merits of the product rather than relying solely on BBA approval. We take pride in manufacturing LOFT-E® ourselves, using 100% recyclable steel—a superior choice compared to plastic raised legs that become brittle in winter and warp during warmer months. LOFT-E® is designed for longevity and is fully height adjustable to accommodate uneven roof joists. Our product has undergone extensive testing at Lancaster University, and we invite you to explore the comprehensive 80+ Fact Document available on our website at www.loft-boarding.co.uk/loft-e/ for more detailed information.

Watch Out for the Cowboys

watch out for the cowboys

Loft boarding is an excellent way to maximize the space in your home. It provides you with additional storage space, and if done correctly, it can even add value to your property. However, choosing the right loft boarding company is critical. It can be the difference between a job done right and a disaster waiting to happen.

When selecting a loft boarding company, it is essential to look for one that has certain qualities. These include insurance, accreditations such as TrustMark, a registered business, great reviews, and being established over 11 years. In this blog, we will highlight the importance of each of these qualities.

Firstly, insurance is crucial when it comes to loft boarding. Accidents can happen, and you want to make sure that you are not liable for any damages or injuries that may occur during the installation. An insured loft boarding company will provide you with peace of mind, knowing that any accidents or damages will be covered.

Secondly, accreditations such as TrustMark are essential. TrustMark is a government-endorsed scheme that ensures that the companies that are registered with them are reputable, reliable, and trustworthy. Choosing a company with this accreditation means that you can be sure that you are getting high-quality work and excellent customer service.

Thirdly, a registered business is vital when it comes to loft boarding. A registered business is a sign of legitimacy and shows that the company is committed to providing their services for the long term. It also means that they are legally required to comply with certain regulations and standards.

Fourthly, great reviews are essential when choosing a loft boarding company. Reviews from past customers can give you an insight into the quality of work and customer service that you can expect. A company with numerous positive reviews is an indication that they are dedicated to providing excellent service and have a track record of delivering quality work.

Finally, the company’s establishment over 11 years is a clear indication of their expertise and experience in the field of loft boarding. A company that has been in business for over a decade has likely encountered numerous challenges and has overcome them through trial and error, meaning they are likely to deliver high-quality work.

In conclusion, choosing the right loft boarding company is essential. When looking for a loft boarding company, look for one that has insurance, accreditations such as TrustMark, is a registered business, has great reviews, and has been established for over 11 years. These qualities are crucial and will ensure that you get the best possible service and the highest quality work.
