Room In Roof Insulation
Heat rises, and in an uninsulated home, a quarter of heat is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and effective way to reduce heat loss and reduce your heating bills*. *Energy saving trust
Loft insulation is effective for at least 42 years and it should pay for itself many times over.
If your loft is easy to access and has no damp or condensation problems, it should be easy to insulate.
Loft insulation is easy and quick to install using rolls of mineral wool insulation. The first layer is laid between the joists – the horizontal beams that make up the ‘floor’ of the loft – then another layer is cross-laid at right angles to cover the joists and make the insulation up to the required depth.
This is typically done by fixing rigid insulation boards between the roof rafters. Boards must be cut to the correct width so that they fit snugly between the rafters. They can then be covered by plasterboard. Rafters aren’t usually very deep, so to get the best performance you may have to insulate over them as well, using insulated plasterboard. If there isn’t room to do this, make sure you use the highest performance insulation board.
Walls in the roof space and around dormer windows should also be insulated. This is typically done with rigid insulation boards.
In all cases adequate ventilation should be maintained to the rafters.
if there are already damp issues on the property, these need to be sorted before insulation is installed,
During the installation
The room will need to be empty before the work begins. It does not need to be removed before the survey.All fittings and fixtures will be carefully removed and replaced. Some may require slight alterations such as radiator pipework.
The installation of insulation in loft rooms and roof conversions is a specialist task and not a DIY project. There are considerations to be made about ventilation and fire protection.
