Share this post if you know any heroes!!
So far this year, in only 5 months, through my Community Heroes Initiative, I have personally given back OVER $1800 to Lubbock's community heroes, and I'm just getting started! That number doesn't take into account the money saved or given back from affiliates ( I love my lenders and Hinton Vick of house to home inspections) , the numerous gift cards given out, meals paid for, and donations made. That's all REAL MONEY given back to our Community Heroes when they bought or sold their home. If you are military, veteran, law enforcement, first responder, teacher, or health care professional and you are thinking about buying or selling your home, CALL ME! You will get the expert representation that I, along with the Keller Williams name are known for, and you will get your special thank you! The numbers don't lie. And the best part? It's all LOCAL here in our Lubbock community.
Attic access ladders are often installed incorrectly. Common issues are found that reduce the ladders strength and stability. Often the ladders are installed at heights that are to short or to high. This causes additional stress on the hinges and lessens the ladders ability to withstand weight. Another common issue with attic access ladders is the hardware used to secure the ladder frame to the ceiling. The manufactures recommend to use 16D nails or 1/4 X 3" lag screws to support the unit and resist the sheering off of screws. As seen in the photo above, many access ladder housings are simply installed with wood screws that do not possess the sheering strength recommended. Attic access ladders can be dangerous especially under the circumstances listed above. In summary access ladders are prone to a number of defects, but mostly from improper installation. Care should always be exercised while using pull down ladders to gain access to the attic space.
