One common installation defect is that members of structures such as rolls or floor beams are cut to accommodate the stairs.
Members of the attic floor structure should not be removed, coated or cut without proper reinforcements installed. Most of the attic stairs are designed to fit between the floor blocks but when the floor beams need to be cut, professional evaluations should be made to strengthen the floor structure. Often hardware, screws and nuts that hold the ladder hinge are lost or loose. All fasteners should be installed and everything should be tight so as to avoid danger. Missing bolts or nuts should be replaced to avoid serious injury.
