Room In Roof

25% of all heat loss is from an uninsulated room-in-roof. You could save up to £400 in fuel costs by effectively insulating the room in your roof. 

A room-in-roof or attic room is defined by having access to a fixed staircase leading to the room. 

How does Room in Roof Insulation work?

Room in roof insulation insulates your original wall and sloping area by adding a layer of the thermal laminate board and plaster. The vertical stud wall and flat ceiling would then be insulated with thick earth wool and tightly secured with netting. Making your additional living space warm and cosy whilst bringing it up to date with current building regulations.

Benefits of Room In Roof Insulation:

  • Create extra habitable space in your home.
  • Create a cosy and warm feeling in your property.
  • Greatly reduce heat loss.
  • Reduce your energy bills.

Why Insulate

A room in roof with poor insulation will lose lots of heat, and in some cases about a quarter of the heat in a home can be lost through its roof. Insulating your room in roof properly can be complicated but it will create considerable energy efficiency benefits and help keep your home warm

Many older properties that were originally built with loft room space were either inadequately insulated or not insulated at all compared to current building regulations. 

  Pitched Roof Insulation– High density batts are secured to the walls and ceilings of the attic rooms, with slabs of insulation fitted between exposed rafters or beams. A layer of plasterboard is then installed over the insulation material and skimmed with plaster ready for decorating. Skirting boards, radiators and light fittings will be removed prior to the insulation and replaced afterwards. 

Dormer Roof– Many dormer room-in-roofs can be too hot in summer and too cold in winter which makes them inefficient without adequate insulation. The process is the same as for pitched roof insulation.

Attic Room – A typical attic room has stud walls at the sides of the attic, squaring off the eaves space to create a box style room. The eaves are accessible through a small hatch for maintenance and insulation purposes. The stud walls are insulated with rock wool that is netted into place on both sides and the ceiling. The eaves area is insulated by sliding insulation boards up into the ceiling void between the rafters
