Loft Insultation

Loft and Roof Insulation in Kent

Loft and Roof Insulation in Kent

It is estimated that on average a poorly insulated roof can lose up 30% of your household heating, in other words for every £100 you spend on heating up to £30 could be wasted warming up the birds feet that are sitting on your roof!

Without proper insulation, a lot of the valuable, expensive energy you have used to heat your home will be lost through the loft. The government have recently changed legislation to ensure home owners increase insulation when carrying out re-roofing works.

The recommended depth for mineral wool insulation is 270mm, however there are other materials such as high density insulation boards that can be fitted between the rafters creating a warm roof so your loft space is not inundated with itchy fibreglass material.

Did you know?
If everyone in the UK installed 270mm loft insulation, over £500 million could be saved and there would be nearly three million tonnes less of CO2 emissions into our atmosphere. That’s enough to fill Wembley Stadium nearly 380 times.

Is loft insulation for you?

Generally speaking, your home will be a perfect candidate for loft insulation, if it has an accessible loft with no damp or condensation problems.

If you do have condensation or damp problems in your roof, Ballman Roofing can overcome these for you by installing cross ventilation systems to eliminate air moisture condensation issues.

What could you save?

Loft insulation is effective for at least 40 years, and it will pay for itself over and over again in that time. The insulation will begin to pay for itself in as little as 12 months and can save ££s every year from then on.

If you have a loft space you need or would like to use, call one of our team for a loft insulation and boarding quote, and between the rafter insulation sheets, to create valuable storage space to keep your heat in at the same time.

What are the benefits?

Loft insulation is an effective way to save energy and money at home. A well-insulated house takes very little energy to heat and once warm your home will stay warm for much longer. It also helps the environment by using less fuel, thus reducing emissions.

So, insulating your loft – or topping up any insulation you have already – will help to heat your home more efficiently, use less energy, reduce carbon dioxide emissions (CO2 is one of the biggest causes of climate change) and save you money on your bills too. It really is a no brainer!
