What is Room-in-Roof Insulation?

A room in roof Insulation is typically (but not always) a property which has had a loft conversion that is accessed from a fixed staircase, but it can also be an original building feature. Normally a room in the roof will have sloping ceilings, and dormer or sloping style windows on the upper floor.

A room in the roof can have multiple different heat loss elements, these include sloped ceilings, stud walls, dormer and gable walls and a flat ceiling.  If these elements of the roof if not insulated correctly, heat will be escaping causing the room to be cold and a higher cost to heat. The room in roof insulation creates a thermal barrier that prevents heat from being lost. It is important that each element of room is insulated is appropriately considered and incorporated into the system design to prevent thermal bridging and maximise the energy efficiency gains.

How does it work?

Roof-in-roof insulation works by using a unique type of insulation that fit into the gaps of the joists, rafters and the walls created. Creating a protective sheet of insulation keeping the room warm in the winter months and cooler in the summer months. The insulation is needed for properties with loft conversions or houses with a dormer-style roof.
