Loft Insultation & Boarding

Around 30% of heat lost in uninsulated homes is through the roof. Loft insulation is a relatively low cost option and is generally effective for around 30 to 40 years and will pay for itself several times over during this time. Loft insulation also helps to reduce heating bill, potentially saving you upto £150 every year; it will also reduce carbon emissions and helps keep heat out of your house during the summer. The installation that KAM Property Maintenance can provide is quick and easy, taking between 1-2 hours (depending on the size of your loft).

When insulating your loft, KAM Property Maintenance’s installers will do the entire process in one visit including (where necessary) ensuring appropriate ventilation to prevent a build up of condensation, insulating the loft hatch and protecting the pipes to prevent them freezing. The entire installation process will generally take no more than half a day and all that’s required is that your loft has been cleared.I am text block. Click edit button to change this text.

In my home suitable?

As long as the house has a loft space which is not boarded it will be suitable, although the type of roof you have may affect your options. It is important to note that if you use your loft for storage, if you installed the recommended level of loft insulation, you will no longer be able to do this as putting items on insulation weighs it down and reduces effectiveness. Similarly you will be unable to lay boards onto the joists (although there are ways around this).

There are options available for your loft insulation but they do vary dependent on your house. Pitched (sloping) roofs have more options available while flat or dormer roofs have more limited options. Our assessor will have looked at every option and the recommendations will be based on what is most suitable for your property.

How much could I save?

Loft insulation could cut your heating costs by up to 30%. The actual monetary and carbon dioxide savings may vary depending on a number of factors such as how much insulation you already have, how hot you have your house in the winter, which fuel you use and how long you have your heating on for, but you could be looking at around £150 per year.
