Along with other authorities, we looked at a selection of subjects concerning loft insulation.
Firstly, we gained permission from a West Midlands local authority to survey ventilation and condensation with recent insulation upgrades. Secondly, we commissioned the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne to carry out research into the effects of air infiltration and insulation application defects in ventilated lofts. Lastly, we gained permission to carry out a roof survey of pubicly owned properties so as to assess and record the condition of the loft insulation installed. View the results of all three tests in the white papers below.
