To decide what insulation depth your roof requires; our expert surveyors carry out a comprehensive analysis to determine the current condition of your existing roof. Insulation materials stop heat from moving through the material with the matting fibres trapping the air and thus heat within it. As experienced loft insulators, our proficient team understand that the insulation shouldn’t be too overstretched or compressed as this would render its insulating properties ineffective.
Our well-seasoned staff insulate the loft hatch, necessary pipes and tanks whilst leaving you with the access to areas you need, implementing enough ventilation to avoid troublesome condensation and safely considering all the electrical wiring involved.
We efficiently insulate your home from the outside so there’s minimal disruption to your living space. Once the insulation is installed we fit our state-of-the-art Eco-Roof Thermal Blanket so your home remains a pleasure to be in all year round- cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter like a Thermos flask!
