Why choose room in roof insulation?
If you want to use your loft as a living space, then insulation is a must. Whether your room in the roof is already a much-loved space in the house, or you want to transform your loft into the hub of the home, room in roof insulation is exactly what you need.
Room in the roof insulation can be installed to the roof itself rather than the loft floor. This is typically done by fixing the insulation between the roof rafters. Around 25% of all heat from the home is lost in through uninsulated room in the roof, meaning that adding insulation could transform your home’s energy efficiency.

What is room in roof insulation?
If you are lucky enough to have a vaulted ceiling or wish to convert your loft area into a room, these spaces can be insulated using rigid foam insulation.
Rigid foam insulation comes in sheet form that is then cut down to size before being fixed in between the rafters of your roof area. Engineers must be careful to make sure that the rigid foam insulation is cut to the precise shape of the rafters and that no gaps are present.
The rigid foam insulation is then covered by plasterboard which can also be backed with a similar insulation material if required to provide extra warmth.
Building regulations advice from your local council is often needed before undertaking this type of work.
Is Room in Roof Insulation the Same as Loft Insulation?
Room in roof insulation and loft insulation are not the same thing, although they do share some similarities.
Loft insulation is designed to insulate the floor of the loft, and it involves laying insulation materials between the joists. Room in roof insulation, on the other hand, is designed to insulate the sloping walls and ceiling of a converted loft space, where the roof space has been turned into a habitable area.
