Two Story Attic Access Door

Here's an attic access that is located in one of the bedrooms. This might not be the best place for an attic access because people will place furniture in front of them, blocking them off, which makes it hard for the people that need to go into the attics for maintenance.

The one thing I like about second story attic access, is simply the fact that no ladder is required or pull down stairway to gain access to the attic.

Be careful when exiting these attic access areas, attics are normally dirty and you could track this dirt into the home.

Most homeowners do not like dirt on their carpeting. Always carry a cloth tarp when you run into a situation like this as a home inspector.

Treat the homes you are inspecting better than you would your own and always clean up any mess that you make.
