The type of insulation that you should choose depends on the type of roof that you have. You have two options if you have a pitched roof (warm or cold loft insulation) and three options if you’re after the best insulation for a flat roof (warm deck, cold deck, or inverted roof).
The simplest and most affordable type of roof insulation is the classic cold loft option, while the warm loft insulation option is also available as an alternative.
You can always consult a professional to help you decide which type of roof heat protection will work best with the kind of roof and home you have.

Roof insulation is one of the biggest savours of heat waste, reducing energy-usage, and your carbon footprint and lowering monthly bills. Many homeowners across the United Kingdom are quickly realising the importance of installing insulation in their roofs.
With quality insulation, you can greatly reduce the percentage of heat that is lost through the roof, and keep it inside your house instead. This means you will use less energy on heating your home, and that equates to saving more on your monthly energy bills.
Roof insulation reduces the amount of heat loss, which reduces energy consumption to either heat or cool your property. By minimising energy consumption you release less carbon emissions and reduce your carbon footprint.
Insulation has become a standard in most properties, especially when people are looking to buy or rent. Due to the high expense of energy bills, having a home with new and updated insulation can add value to your property.
As heat rises and escapes through the roof, it can quickly make your home uncomfortable to live in, with irregular temperatures and draughts. By investing in insulation solutions, you can avoid these issues.

If you have a flat ceiling and pitched metal or tile roof, batts or blanket insulation are great choices. The range of batts and blankets that are suitable for your ceiling insulation includes versions made from polyester, natural wool, glass wool, and rock wool.
It isn’t typically recommended that you insulate between rafters or beams, because attic spaces should be ventilated and the insulation you install there will lie between two unheated spaces. Instead, you should add insulation to the floor where it will be more effective.
The recommended depth of blanket style, glass, or mineral wool insulation for a loft is 250 to 270 mm. If you have already had insulation installed, but it was several years ago or more, then it’s worth checking the depth of the product you have. Just a few years ago, the recommended depth of warm flat roof insulation was 200 mm, and before that, it was as low as 100 mm, so your existing insulation may not be as thick as it should be.
Effective ceiling insulation is your best barrier against extreme weather conditions and can help save you up to 20% on heating and cooling energy costs. For most Victorian homes, there will already be some form of canopy shield. However, chances are, it’s been there for a long time and so it’s no longer as functional as it should be.
If you’re remodelling your current home, spray foam is the best insulation option for maximum energy efficiency. You can also opt to spray loose-fill cellulose or fibreglass into existing structures.
If you’re trying to decide between the floor or roof as the best way to insulate your unused attic, the right answer depends on what you intend to do with the space. If you have plans to furnish your attic in the future and use it as an additional living space, you may opt to insulate the pitched roof and have it as a ceiling leakage defense at the same time.
