What do you need to know about rafter/loft board insulation?
Around a quarter of the heat in your home can be lost through the loft or attic, so insulating the space is an effective way of reducing your energy bills. Roof spaces that are correctly insulated can upgrade them to Building Regulation compliance requirements, meaning the room(s) would be considered habitable and potentially increase your property’s value.
Materials used for insulation can include wool, rigid boards and reflective foil. This can be carried out either in between the boards or below them. Those who have shallow rafter/loft boards, may choose to apply the insulation materials beneath as this is a much easier way to insulate. However, if your boards are thicker or you don’t wish to lose any more headroom, then it’s advisable to install the insulation materials in between the boards.
Remember to check the qualifications and experience of a tradesman before making a hire, and be sure that they are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities. They should also offer a guarantee in case their work is incorrectly done.
