Installing Access Panels and Ladders

May 23, 2013

Everyone who is in their own home knows that there is never enough space.  There are several way to reach areas of your house that otherwise would be unreachable.  You may want to conceal wiring or create storage areas within your house, expanding your existing area.  Once you choose the area that you will be focusing on, then you have to find a way to conceal the wiring and openings that you create.

Plastic access panels are fairly easy to install, but if done incorrectly then you will be repairing and replacing for a long time to come.  Hiring a professional to install the panels is a good idea if you are not completely confident in your abilities.  The type of access panel door that will choose to install will vary based on the area and need.

While access panels for drywall are the easiest to install, you still want to create a smooth and seamless appearance when the job is done.  As a do-it-yourselfer you could fairly quickly install a drywall access panel in your own home, and in no time you can have access to wiring and ports.  If you are going to do the work then you want to make sure that the wall looks as good as before the work began.

It gets to be more difficult if you have to reach the higher spots in your home, such as a roof and ceilings.  If you are going to target high areas then you need to make sure that you can always reach them when you need to access them again.  Your job will include installing an access ladder so that you can gain access into the panel whenever necessary.  If you are looking to go all the way up into the roof, then you will need to explore roof access ladders.  Because of the hatch location and exposure to the elements, any mistakes made here could mean significant damage.  You will need to access this area again, so make sure that the ladder is accessible.

A professional installer will be able to provide you with the best guidance and recommendations.  Installation will be much smoother if handled by a professional.  You should also plan for all repairs to be handled by professionals as well.  Whether your work is for home or work, finding the right materials and providers will be key in your successful installation of panels, ladders, and hatches.
