Pros: quick and simple, cheaper than buying sheets of timber.
Cons: some where damaged, dont lay at 600mm spacing - 400mm max
" Great product, three boards per pack seems low, but any more and you would struggle to lift into the loft.
works out cheaper than buying complete boards of 18mm T&G, and saves the time having to cut them.
Dont lay at 600mm spacing unless you want a springy floor, 400mm maximum!
Only complaint would be some of the boards seemed to have been damaged in transit. "

Pros: easy to cut and lay, cost effective
Cons: none
" Used in conjunction with lengths of CLS timber, to raise the floor and allow addition insulation to be inserted. The boards are easy to lay and provide a flat surface for convenient storage.
The panels are flat and the tounge and groove interlocking joints effectively join the panels together to provide a smooth expanse. "

Pros: easy to fit with a bit of common sense.
Cons: can break if hit directly with a hammer.
" Used for boarding out a loft to use as storage space.
Goes down easily, though the tongue and groove can collapse if you don't line it up properly.
Recommend using a length of 2x1 for tapping into a tight fit. Don't use a hammer directly on the board as it will break or deform.
It's currently holding the weight of a full loft of general household stuff and is doing well. Can't comment on legevity as only been in place a week, but for the price if it lasts 5 years I'm happy.

Pros: great quality
Cons: none
" Excellent product and unbeleavable service upon collection. The assistant helped me load the panels into my car, after moving them from the warehouse out into the car park, having paid on line the day before collection. First Class panels of a superior quality that cut, drill and slot together effortlessly. When i purchase some more Wickes will be my first port of call. "

" As others have mentioned, this is a great loft board. Easy to take all the 3 up into the loft. I recently had the extended loft insulation of 170mm over the old 100mm, and had lost all the loft space. I got this boards along with Loft Legs and have boarded up most of the area. Used 4 x 40mm screws to secure the loft legs, and then screwed the loft board to the legs with 4 x 35mm screws. Net result is great ! Highly recommended. Rember to rest all the edges on the legs or joists. Dont leave it overhanging from the edge. Because it looks and feels strong, but could just crack. Also dont screw around the edges, leave around 30mm gap or so. "

" A good value product that was very easy to lay due to the t&g joins. Although fairly heavy to handle they are the ideal size to pass through the loft hatch. They seem very strong and care needs to be taken so that they don't hang over a joist! A jig saw will come in handy! Would certainly recommend to friend. "
