Roof & Loft Insulation
Loft insulation keeps your home warmer for longer and reduces overall energy usage. As well as keeping the warmth in, loft insulation helps to combat the build-up of condensation & dampness. This is crucial if you want to protect the framework of your roof as well as the items you may store within it.
Loft insulation is a barrier of material in your roof space that traps heat. It can either be laid between the joists (the horizontal beams along the floor of your attic) or the rafters (the angled beams that support the roof).
Either way, it’s like a big cosy blanket that slows down the transfer of heat between your living space and the outside world. Insulation not only warms your home in winter, but keeps it cool in summer.
Insulation between the joists keeps warmth in your living space below, and creates a cold loft. Insulation in the rafters allows you to keep warmth in the roof space as well.
