What is right insulation for my property?

The two most common types of attic insulation are Floor Insulation (Earth Wool) and Roof Insulation (Spray Foam). The best option for your home will depend on what your future plans for the attic space are and the nature of the construction of your property. Our expert advice will ensure you don’t make a mistake by installing an incorrect system. Please read more for further product information.


Loft Roll (Floor)

Insulating the floor in your attic is the most common and most cost effective way to insulate your attic space. By stopping the heat at ceiling level on the landing you create what we call a cold attic. This method is most efficient as you prevent your heat entering the attic space unnecessarily. This increases your overall comfort and fuel savings greatly and the results are tangible immediately. The day the job is done is the day you feel warmer and your fuel costs get lower.

300mm Kanufwool Loft Roll = U Value 0.11 kWh


Spray Foam (Roof)

Spray foam insulation is recommended if you are converting the attic or planning to in the future. Opposite to insulating the floor, insulating between the roof rafters allows heat to travel in the attic void which is recommended if you are planning to turn it in to living space. If you have no intention of converting the attic in to a room we would recommend Floor Insulation. Spray Foam will too increase the comfort and value of your property.
