What is room in roof insulation?

Installing room in roof insulation involves insulation boarding being fitted in between the rafters underneath the existing plasterboard walls.

Room in roof insulation works by trapping heat within your home to create a blanket effect.

This allows you to more easily maintain a warm home without using as much energy to do so, saving you money on your energy bills.


What are room in roof insulation boards made of?

The insulation boards used are usually made from polystyrene or polyurethane which are effective materials for trapping heat.

The boards are rigid and can be cut to correct sizes to create a barrier to stop heat escaping.

They can then be plastered to create an aesthetic finish for your room.
