When attic stairs are installed, a large hole (approximately 10 square feet) is created in your ceiling. The ceiling and insulation that were there have to be removed, leaving only a thin, unsealed, sheet of plywood.
Because your attic space is ventilated directly to the outdoors, the attic space can be very cold in the winter, and in the summer it can be very hot. And what is separating your conditioned house from your unconditioned attic? Only a thin sheet of plywood.
Try this yourself: at night, turn on the attic light and shut the attic stairway door. If you see any light coming through, it means your heated and air-conditioned air is leaking out of these large gaps in your home, 24-hours a day.
An easy, low-cost solution to this problem is to add an insulated attic stair cover that seals the stairs and stops drafts and energy loss. Add the desired amount of insulation over the cover to restore the insulation removed from the ceiling.

All kits include durable stair cover and weatherstripping. All kits easily install in minutes with no tools!
How To Determine Correct Size To Fit Your Folding Stairs:
Pull down cord – measure length and width of the hinged door (between trim).
21″ wide x 52″ long = Model 22×54
24″ wide x 52″ long = Model 25×54
Please purchase the correct size to fit your ladder – a larger size will not fit a smaller ladder correctly.
Dimensions are approximate so PLEASE email or call if any questions! Please note our Best kits ships in 2 boxes.
