What is Room in a Roof insulation?

Prevent heat loss with Room in Roof Insulation.

When it comes to insulation, most people think of the attic. However, there is another important area that needs to be insulated – the room in a roof. This space can be used for storage, a home office, or an extra bedroom.

If you would like to use your loft as a living space, then we recommend that all the walls and ceilings are insulated! Retrofit room insulations can be installed by over boarding existing substrate with 62.5mm thick plasterboard.

Some of the benefits of Room in Roof Insulation include:
