Attic Insulation is a simple yet effective method of insulating your home. With up to 30% of your house heat escaping through the roof of your home, attic insulation acts as a barrier, preventing the heat from escaping and therefore keeping your home warmer and more comfortable.
The optimum depth of attic insulation is 300mm. It is strongly advised that you top-up your attic insulation to reach this optimum level to ensure your home retains as much heat as possible. Installing attic insulation usually takes up to half a day and the occupants can remain in the house as works are being carried out.

Pitched Roof with loft Space
We use a mineral wool, quilt insulation called Earthwool. The quilt insulation is laid inbetween the joists and over the joists to minimise heat loss. Insulated walk board is then placed on top to give you safe walking access from your hatch to your water storage tanks. Extra insulated walkboard can also be used for storage purposes.
Pitched Roof with Loft Conversion
To effectively insulate a converted attic space, a variety of insulation is used depending on what is most suitable for the space you have available. This includes; quilt insulation, EPS, loose fill insulation such as cellulose and also warmboard. Our expert surveyors will advise you on the best methods for insulation your converted attic.
The most effective way to insulate a flat roof is above the roof deck where the insulated boarding is placed on top of the timber joists. The insulation can be either between the roof deck and weatherproof covering (known as the sandwich method), or on top of the weatherproof covering (known as the inverted method). Our surveyors will advise you on the best method of insulating your flat roof.
