✔ Blocks Airflow, expands as it dries to seal any cracks or gaps
✔ Cab be applied almost anywhere.
✔ Can reach places other insulation can’t.
This is one the most common type of insulation we offer. There are a number of different options when it comes to insulating your roof. You could choose to insulate in the rafters, or you can insulate the floor of your attic. We do suggest that unless you actually plan to use the attic for extra rooms in your home, that you insulate the ceiling. This will keep the heat underneath, rather than wasting it in an unused attic.
When you actually use your attic for rooms, it is even more important to insulate effectively. The rooms at the top of the house can lose heat rapidly if not insulated correctly. We ensure that the walls and ceiling are well packed so that the heat stays inside your house.
As mentioned, 25%-30%of heat can be lost through the walls. Chances are, there are large gaps of air in your walls. This is particularly true with houses built before the 90’s. We use our special system to fill these cavities with premium quality insulation.
When you have a solid wall, the insulation must be applied to it, either internally or externally. Internal insulation, or dry-lining is where we fix a layer of insulation to the wall. This generally has a plasterboard finish, ready to be decorated as normal. This is generally very popular in older houses, where solid blocks have been used to build walls. The lack of cavity means that the cavity wall insulation is not an option.
There is the option to remove floor boards and insulate under them. This can also help to eliminate draughts. If you are unsure where your home is losing the most heat, call us today, we will be happy to do an evaluation.
This contains extremely fine glass fibres and is one of the more well-known types of insulation. It typically comes in rolls, or blankets. It can also come in more rigid boards. It can be irritating and dangerous if breathed in. We feel there are more friendly materials to use. We do offer a service to replace fibreglass in your home.
This is made from natural materials, generally basalt or diabase. Mineral wool contains more recycled materials. Again it is available in blanket or loose fill format. It can be packed tighter than the fibreglass material, making it denser.
This is made from recycled paper products, like newspapers etc. It uses almost all recycled materials. It can be packed very tightly into cavities. It is treated to make it fire resistant. This type of insulation can be done dry, or damp and sprayed into cavities.
This is made from recycled plastic, like milk cartons etc. It is treated to make it fire resistant, but it does melt if it touches flames.
This can be any natural material, cotton, hemp etc. This is non toxic, and again, fibres are treated during manufacturing. This is to help make fire resistant and prevent mould.
This is used to make foam board or beadboard Insulation, or small bead insulation. This is very lightweight and the density can vary.
These are layers added to the surface of the insulation. You may have seen insulation boards with foil etc covering them. This helps hold the material together and also offers further insulation or protection.
