Loft Insulation

A quarter of your home’s heat can be lost through its roof. Insulating your loft or roof space with heat-trapping material can cut back on heat loss.

What is loft insulation?

Heat rises, so it makes sense that a poorly insulated roof would be the cause of up to 25% of your home’s total heat loss. Effective modern roof insulation is affordable, long-lasting, and can lead to significant savings on your heating bills and a more cosy home.

How does loft insulation work?

A layer of insulating material is fitted either between the joists in your loft (the horizontal beams – insulating the living space below the loft) or between the rafters (the roof support beams – insulating the loft itself). We use high-quality Knauf Insulation or Isover Spacesaver materials, which are great at conducting heat to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They’re also sound-dampening and non-flammable. Having a professional install loft insulation for you is essential, as insulation materials can be dangerous to handle without specialist equipment. Our loft insulation installs are guaranteed for 3 years.

In terms of the environmental benefits, having good loft insulation also helps you reduce your home’s carbon footprint. That’s because the better insulated your home is, the more efficient your heating system will be – reducing emissions as well as saving you money on bills.
