If your loft is converted into a habitable place or a room, the whole roof space should be enveloped in insulation.
This will not only give the effect of loft insulation to the rest of the property but also diminish heat loss from the newly converted room.
The process is quite different from the normal loft insulation; insulation is added not only to the floor but also to the walls and ceiling.
All internal surfaces are then boarded, skimmed and made ready for painting which you can chose to do yourself or hire a professional decorator if desired.
The majority of heat gets wasted through the roof of an uninsulated home due to warmth being able to rise.
So, keeping your attic, loft or flat roof well-insulated is an easy and efficient method to minimize heat loss and lower your heating costs.
Room In the Roof Insulation is excellent for lofts that are used as a bedroom that allows you to insulate the sloped surfaces of your roof by using sheets of insulation instead of insulating the floor.
Loft insulation is the method of placing insulation between the joists in your loft. This stops heat from leaving in winter and prevents it from entering your living spaces in summer.
Benefits of Room In Roof Insulation
A room in the roof (loft space) or attic space is defined simply by the existence of a staircase fixed for access to the room.
Many older houses were built with a roof that were not properly insulated in the past. If insulation was used but it was not sufficient according to modern standards.
Loft conversions completed in the past 30 years are also more likely to be inefficiently insulated or even not at all which means that the rooms could be extremely cold and hard to warm.
