Room in Roof Insulation

If you’ve converted your loft into a liveable space, insulating boards between the rafters can prevent heat loss.

What is room in roof insulation?

Your roof accounts for 25% of heat loss from your home. Converting your loft into a living space can be a great idea, but if the room is poorly insulated, it won’t be a comfortable place to spend your time and will have a knock-on effect on the rest of the house.

How does room-in-roof insulation work?

Room-in-roof insulation is straightforward. We take heat-trapping polystyrene insulation boards, cut them to size to fit between the rafters of your roof, and finish with a layer of plaster to maintain a smooth look. These insulating boards can be fitted behind the plasterboard of your existing loft conversion. It’s important to note that room-in-roof insulation and traditional loft insulation are not compatible, but our insulating boards provide the necessary level of heat retention for your home.
