Installing Insulation.

Installing loft insulation over the joists at ceiling level is an easy job if you have the right training and skills. All our operatives are fully trained and experienced installers, fully aware of the all the Assessed Risks that come with the job.

Older houses will have a small amount of insulation lying within the joists, slightly newer houses will have more. Of course this may have been topped up over the last few years. Modern houses must have at least 300mm, or equivalent. The minimum we would recommend is 270mm, but we recommend you install as near to 400mm as possible.

The insulation is made up of 2 layers, called cross laying. Depending on the thickness of the joists, a suitable layer of insulation is laid over the existing insulation to bring it to the top of the joists. A further layer to bring the combined depth to 300mm is cross laid at a 90 degree angle. This results in less gaps and a more efficient insulation..

An air gap must be left around the outer perimeter to allow airflow. We also insulate and seal the loft hatch and make sure it has some sort of locking mechanism. We don’t want draughts coming through, or all your heat escaping through a badly insulated hatch!

As part of the service we make sure the risk of fire is mitigated by ensuring sufficient air gaps around ceiling level down lighters. Should you wish we can supply protective caps to ensure no one moves insulation on top of the lighting at a later date. Down-lighters run at very high temperatures, and special care has to be taken as if not done correctly they will pose a serious fire risk. Don’t take the risk, have the work done by professionals!

By keeping more heat inside your home, your loft space will become colder. As a result tanks and pipes need to be carefully protected and insulated to ensure they do not freeze in winter. We ensure everything is taken care of and leave your home the way we found it.

Contact us today to see what funding is available and how little a loft top up could cost you if you don’t qualify. All our quotes are free and no obligation, and we wont send a salesman around. Using professional Insulation installers is cheaper than you might think.
