Say Goodbye to Drafts: Insulate Your Roof and Enhance Your Comfort!

To put it directly, a ‘Room in Roof’ is a room located within or beneath your roof. Sloping ceilings are normally apparent in the room, although if there are wide dormer windows, there may be none. A room in the roof might be a converted roof space, such as a loft conversion, or an original design element, such as the top floor in a dormer cottage.

Many earlier homes designed with loft room space or ‘Room-in-Roof’ were either never insulated at all or insulated with insufficient materials and procedures in comparison to contemporary building codes. Insulating existing attic rooms with the latest insulation materials and procedures allows you to use the roof space for storage or additional room space as needed while trapping heat in the house and rooms below.

What is Room-in-Roof Insulation?

Room-In-Roof Insulation is the process of installing insulation boards between the rafters and over the current plaster boards to retain heat inside. These boards are often composed of polyurethane or polystyrene and offer an additional layer of water resistance, preventing rain from seeping in and heat from escaping. Our team at ‘All Heating One’ will ensure that every surface linked to the exterior is adequately insulated. Our installers often complete the task in two days, which is incredibly efficient and leaves little mess.

How Does Room in Roof Insulation Work?

Insulation boards are installed between the rafters in the loft to function as a barrier against the cold outside while maintaining warm air within. The stiff insulating construction offers a full watertight barrier, preventing rising heated air from escaping. If you’ve already transformed your loft into a living area, the insulation boards are cut to the proper size and installed beneath the walls. To get underground, the ceiling or tiles may need to be removed and re-roofed.

A second option is to build another layer to the ceiling that can accommodate the insulation. This may be easier and cheaper, but it is more likely to limit headroom. If you haven’t converted your loft yet but plan to do so in the near future, the insulation boards can be built and plasterboard placed on top.

Are There Any Conditions?

Absolutely, there are some constraints on what constitutes a ‘room in a roof’. We recommend scheduling our pre-installation survey to ensure you select the appropriate insulation for your property. Some important requirements to take note of are: The room must have a permanent stairway leading up to it that is accessible enough to walk down looking forward – no attic ladders allowed. You’ll need to ensure that your room isn’t merely another level, which would not qualify as a room in a roof.

What's the Difference between Room-in-Roof and Simple Loft Insulation?

Loft insulation in the classic sense consists of insulation installed on the loft floor between the joists, with an extra layer laid on top at right angles. This is the most prevalent variety, and it is often manufactured from mineral wool in the shape of soft rolls.

If your loft area is underused and has not been insulated in the previous 20 years, you might consider installing this common form of loft insulation. However, whether you utilize your loft as a living area or for extra storage, Room in Roof Insulation is more likely to meet your demands. Room in roof insulation will not be seen because it is installed between the rafters under walls or plasterboard. Both types of insulation are meant to keep heat from escaping through your roof, which may also help you save money on your energy costs.
