Loft flooring and storage
Once your insulation has been increased, as many homes in Scotland have already, the storage space in the loft is often lost. It is important you do not store items on top of the loft insulation as not only will this decrease the effectiveness of the insulation, but it can be dangerous if you have ceiling down lighters in your property. Disturbing the insulation can cause lights to become covered, overheat and cause fire!
We can install insulation at rafter level, rather than laying over the joists. Insulating the roof rather than the floor will allow much more heat to pass into the loft, creating a warmer space. If you plan on using the loft space, you should consider rafter insulation. We can use insulation boards, or the latest silver YBS Foil-tec wafer thin insulation to provide a top quality finish with a thermal conductivity as low as 0.13w/m2K! (equivalent to 300mm of insulation).
If your property has dormer windows then you won’t have a full normal loft across the entirety of your home. This is known as room in roof insulation. It is slightly more complex to install but doesn’t cost much more than standard insulation to fit. DMS can survey, quote, guide you through funding options, and install Room in Roof insulation to the highest standard. Contact us today to arrange a free survey.
It is entirely possible for a confident DIY enthusiast to insulate their own loft. There are plenty of online guides to help, but we strongly advise against it. Plenty of accidents happen in lofts even before the joists are covered by insulation! Our advice is, leave it to the professionals. And we are fully insured for £10,000,000 if something should go wrong.
We use only top quality insulation products, and the expected lifespan of our insulation work is 42 years. That is a lot of savings over the years! We can supply any brand of material should you have a specific preference. However, our main suppliers are Superglass Insulation for 100% locally recycled and manufactured “multi roll 44” fiberglass wool insulation, and YBS for the latest technology in Multi-Foil Insulation for use in insulating rafters, solid walls, underfloor and a variety of other applications where space and performance are at a premium.
