Maintaining Home Insulation This Winter

Maintaining home insulation this Winter

With the weather getting colder and more harsh, it’s important to make sure that your roof is well equipped to keep you warm this Winter. After all, a quarter of heat is lost through the roof in an uninsulated home. Here is our guide on how to guarantee a cosy Christmas with high quality home insulation.

Do Your Checks

If you already have insulation installed in your roof and it’s easily accessible through your loft, you can do a few checks to see if there are any issues. Check to see if there is any light creeping through from any gaps or whether the insulation is damp in any way. Highlighting any issues early can allow for a quick fix before the winter season puts it to the test. If you’re unsure about any issues, getting a professional out to inspect would be a good idea.

Discover Your Options

If you just have a small repair job, our team will be able to discuss your options going forward. If you’re considering a new roof altogether, and prioritise home insulation for energy efficiency, a warm flat roof could be perfect for you.

Warm flat roofs have an added layer of insulation added during the construction process which warms the structural supports of the roof itself. This keeps the loft area to a similar temperature to the rest of your property, ensuring a good level of home insulation. As a result, it’s a much more energy efficient option than a traditional ‘cold roof’, where the insulation is added in between the rafters rather than over them.

Well suited to the UK’s climate, warm roofs are now widely accepted as the best roofing structure in the country. Not only are they great energy savers, but thanks to being a breathable roof construction, they can prevent any damp and decay issues too.
