Here are some things to keep in mind before you do:
- While it would be nice to use those extra nails and screws we have left over from a project, they wont necessarily be right for this job as they may not be strong enough to support a pull down ladder.
- Its also important to use ALL the nails and screws provided in a kit (think about why you have nails and screws left over from that previous project)
- What about insulation? A hatch that's not installed properly could allow cold air from the attic to seep into the house and result in inefficient energy usage
- Its very important to make sure that when installing a attic pull down ladder that it is not too short, that it is not missing important fasteners and that it is properly secured.
