Room in Roof
Room in roofs can become frightfully cold during winter whilst become their own oven during the summer. This can lead to a variety of issues such as damp.
Please note, a loft conversion is different to a room in the roof. This is distinguished for example if you use stairs to get access to the loft, central heating system and is habital as well as the necessary requirements to be called a room in the roof.
Before we insulate your room in the roof, one of our surveyors will arrange a day to visit your home and, on that day, we will review your loft to make sure you qualify for the room in the roof insulation. This generally takes around an hour. If you’re happy to go ahead, we can arrange a day of installation. This is a no obligation site survey whilst being free of charge for coming out. Our team will be all ID’d and you will know the name of the person who will be visiting before they visit.
On the day of insulation, we insulate in 5 sections. Each element gets installed differently. Some points of the insulation are, we overboard the walls with 50mm boarded insulation cladded onto the walls. Behind each of the stalls, we lay loft rolls which are 100mm. The flat ceiling, we install with 300mm of insulation. Some of the insulation we lay is condensed insulation so for example, we lay 50mm insulation but this is equivalent to 100mm of insulation. This is due to the ever-evolving nature of insulation and the efficiency it brings with it.
Once the main bulk of the insulation is complete, we make sure to tidy any mess and take away any waste left due to the insulation. We also make sure any plug sockets are put back in correctly. The end result will be a shell which will allow you to decorate from scratch.
Insulation generally takes less than a day to complete.
You may qualify for this type of insulation!
