Types of insulation used in loft conversions

Essex loft conversions

If you wish to transform existing space that is unused into something useful, loft conversions are one of the best ways to go about it. The prices of real estate are on a hike now. Due to this, it has become extremely difficult for people to buy a new house. The only option left for those on a budget is to make the most out of the space that is already available to them. This creates areas in your homes that are fully functional and imparts a welcoming look. In order to increase the value of your house, loft conversions are one the most increasingly popular ways to expand the floor space of your home.

But one of the concerns that are raised with loft conversion is the loss of heat from a house. The roof is where most of the heat loss takes place. So, in order to keep the place warm and cozy, it is essential to get proper insulation. The roof room regulations were not as good a few years back as they are now. If your place has undergone a loft conversion a few years back then it is most likely that it has poor to very little insulation. The current regulations indicate the importance of proper insulation as well as it has provisions of properly getting a place insulated.

Insulation Of The Sloping Roof

There are two ways of carrying out the insulation of the sloping roof. One way is re-roofing that is installing the insulative material between the roof and the ceiling. If you are re-roofing, it is a wise move to get the insulation done otherwise it will be a burden to your pocket later. A less expensive option is to carry out the insulation internally. Another layer is added to the ceiling. But on the downside, the height of the room is compromised. If you already have it done, room insulations are amazing. But retrofitting is expensive and in many cases, impractical. It is something that might not be possible for everyone to do in the near future, therefore, loft insulation is a comparatively cheap and a practical option.
