How to raise the tiles on the top floor of a new building, if the stairs are not ready?
We would like to install tiles (45x90 cm) in the bathroom (13 m2) on the top floor of our detached house, which already has a screed. The tiler says he needs a stairs to do this, which we don't have yet. The windows are already installed, at most we could find a ladder to get from the first floor to the top floor. However, I imagine that carrying packages of tile with a ladder would be quite difficult.
Has anyone already encountered this problem or just have helpful tips on how to get heavy tiles upstairs under these circumstances anyway?
(Waiting for the stairs to show up is not an option).
Simple solution to the question:
The builder provides an electric hoist/ incline hoist that can be used to at least transport materials to floor level.
Ladders can also be installed in a hole in the ceiling for personnel.
But transporting materials on ladders? NEVER!
1. with ladders.
2. with an electric winch
3. with a construction ladder
4. with a protected original ladder
Price/performance I would do 1+2
Why don't you take some wood and quickly screw the ladder on? 1 day's work, a cordless screwdriver and some screws. That's all you need, isn't it?
Otherwise you can't get them up that easily.
Contact your future ladder builder and ask him to make you a construction ladder – I'm sure he'll install something like this for you in no time.
Have you never seen a roofer? – They have these elevators that look like a basketless ladder and a fire truck.
You/your tiler can probably only move the tiles individually. But you will need a ladder for the workers anyway!
Since you want to paint, you may also need scaffolding for the ladder. When will your actual ladder appear?
Since the screed is inside, I wonder how does everyone else get into the attic? How do you get up there to vent?
Even if you have "only" 60x60 tiles, you can hardly do it with a ladder.
