Roof insulation is important to keep your home cozy, especially if you have chosen to use your attic or loft for living space or as storage. There are a number of things to consider if you want to apply roof insulation to your home, including whether you want a warm or cold loft, the pitch of the roof and the construction method used. You’ll find that there are different options depending on the type of house you have, and what the attic is usually used for. Getting a professional in to discuss the choices you can make is a good way to ensure your investment is not wasted.

These may involve batt insulation, which is added in a roll and then secured using strips of wood. Or you might find a spray foam insulation is better, which can be sprayed into the space for ease and will seal it entirely. In some cases we might choose other options such as foil covered polystyrene tiles - it really depends on the attic itself and how you intend to use it.

Roof Insulation For Your Roof Type
The type of insulation application and material we use will vary according to whether you’re using the attic space to live in or to store sensitive items, or whether it can be left cold - but the roof type is also important. If your roof doesn’t already have insulation fitted we can retrofit insulation, using a materials suitable for the roof design. A pitched roof for example, can be insulated under the roof tiles in the pitch of the roof. However, it’s important to make sure the ventilation in the roof is well managed to stop damp and condensation. Flat roofs can be insulated above or below the roof deck, but you’ll need professional advice to ascertain which is best for your home and your needs.
