Attic and Roof Insulation

Attic and Roof insulation is vitally important when it comes to keeping your home warm. It is the largest area of heat loss in a house, a poorly insulated roof could allow up to 35% of your homes heat escape, costing you money. Depending on the structure of the home, there is a range of options that homeowners can choose to insulate their roof and/or attic. If you use the attic as a living space then this area should be insulated at the rafters (ie, the sloped roof). If the attic is not used as a living area then it should be insulated at ceiling level (ie, on the flat) as it would wasteful to keep the attic heated. By insulating the attic at ceiling level it will prevent the heat rising up to the unused attic space, saving you money on your heating bills.

Types of Attic & Roof Insulation:

At ceiling level, you can lay fibreglass quilt between and over the joists, this is a quick, safe and easy process. If you prefer that the insulation be placed between the rafters of the roof then you can use rigid insulation boards such as Kingspan Kooltherm K7 for pitched roofs. It is also possible to use dry lining insulation boards such as Kingspan Kooltherm K17 for plaster-dab /adhesive bonded dry-lining for or Kooltherm 18 for mechanically fixed dry-lining, when insulating a roof.

We have a wide range of solutions and a highly skilled nationwide team available to complete your energy upgrade at a time convenient to you. It is important that if the attic is insulated at joist level that pipe lagging is part of the attic upgrade process, as the temperature of the attic will be reduced.
