How does Room In Roof Insulation work?

The insulation boards are placed in the space between the rafters in the loft and act as a protective layer against the cold outside whilst keeping the warm air inside.

The rigid insulation structure provides a complete waterproof barrier and means that the rising warm air can’t escape.

If you‘ve already converted your loft into a liveable space, the insulation boards are cut to the right size and inserted underneath the walls. This could mean removing the ceiling or removing and re-roofing the tiles to reach underneath. Or, a second option is to add another layer to the ceiling which could fit the insulation. This might be easier and cheaper, but is more likely to restrict headroom. If you haven’t converted your loft space but you’re thinking of doing so in the future, the insulation boards can be installed and plasterboard placed on top.
