Room in Roof Insulation for Residential Properties

About Internal Room in Roof Insulation?

This type of insulation typically includes installing insulating materials between the rafters, under the floorboards, and on any vertical walls.

By properly insulating these spaces, you can reduce heat loss, maintain a comfortable temperature year-round, lower energy bills, and increase the overall energy efficiency of your home.

By addressing these spaces, homeowners can create usable rooms that stay warm in winter and cool in summer, enhancing the overall energy efficiency and livability of their homes. Professional assessment and installation ensure optimal results tailored to each home’s specific requirements and construction type.

Good work all round, all questions answered promptly and thoroughly, folks knew their stuff and were careful to check the best possible result given existing bits of broken polystyrene in the back wall. Larger than average 3 bed semi done in about 3.5 hours once they were set up. More aesthetic than practical, but I was particularly pleased with how well they matched the morter to the existing one for filling the holes at the end of the job. 25 year warantee was a particularly nice touch. Came sooner than booked due to a cancellation which was a bonus. Really noticing the difference already.

The 2 engineers did an excellent job of keeping the drilling holes to a minimum and cleaned up very well afterwards. In addition to the cavity wall insulation, they also had to fit a new vent due to our wood burner in the living room. They checked with us throughout the project that we were happy with what they were doing and asked for feedback at the end. Very professional and polite guys. We will hopefully learn over the hot summer and cold winter how effective the work has been. Well done team!

Terry Dunford did the surveying for our property he was very knowledgeable and gave very good advice which we check and was correct in everything he said. The men who came do the cavity wall insulation were also very good, they respected us and our home,they explained what they were going to do and warned us about the noise. They cleared up after they had completed the work and asked us to check that we were happy with the way they had left our property which we were. We would highly recommend this company to anyone thinking of having any cavity wall insulation done .

Are there any Restrictions for Room in Roof Insulation?

Yes, there are some restrictions on what qualifies as a ‘room in a roof.’ We recommend a pre-installation survey to ensure you choose the right insulation for your home. Key requirements include:

  • Fixed Staircase: The room must have a fixed staircase that’s accessible enough to walk down facing forward, so attic ladders don’t qualify.
  • Room Height: Ensure the room isn’t just another storey. At least 50% of any vertical walls should be under 1.8 metres in height.
  • Ventilation: Adequate ventilation, especially for the rafters, is essential to prevent condensation.
  • Roof Condition: The roof should be in good condition, free from damp, mould, rot, flaking timbers, or unreliable electrical connections.
