Room In the Roof
Around 25% of heat is lost through the roof in an uninsulated property. When the loft is being used as living space it can be very uncomfortable if not insulated correctly. Room In The Roofs tend to be extremely hot in the summer and freezing cold in winter. If the property was built or the room converted before the 1980’s it is likely to have very little to no insulation present. If you are unsure if your property has sufficient insulation, book a free survey and our trained surveyors will confirm this for you.
Typically Room In The Roof Insulation might cost around £4000 HOWEVER many homes in the UK are eligible for government grants which could make it 100% FREE (Subject to survey). Most benefits entitle you to a government grant, take our GOVERNMENT FUNDING ELIGIBILITY CHECKER now to find out if you qualify.

A standard installation will take 3-4 hours. All work should be completed externally unless any hard to treat area’s have been identified at survey stage to be installed internally. The install teams just need access to a power supply and running water throughout the install. Once completed the team will clean any dust and debris created during the install making sure that your property is left in the best possible condition.
There are several elements that make up a room in the roof. The small upright walls (dwarf walls), sloping ceilings, flat ceiling, gable end/party walls. Each room in roof is different and so we confirm the works required at survey stage. All sloping ceilings and solid brick walls such as party walls all have to be insulated internally using a thermal plasterboard. On average you lose 65mm from the size of the room which is hardly noticeable in most cases. These area’s are then re plastered and any skirting boards will be replaced where required. The flat ceiling and stud walls are usually treated as a loft space and loft insulation is laid to achieve the appropriate depth. The install team will use dust sheets on any area’s where they will be working. Once completed the team will clean any dust and debris created during the install making sure that your property is left in the best possible condition.
