How does loft insulation work?

We will determine the current depth of your loft insulation to ascertain whether you require a ‘top up’ or a ‘full loft installation’, in order to do this we will need to have access to your loft area.

We will qualify any tanks and pipes that need Insulating, and any walk ways required to gain access to any live tanks or boilers. We also fit easy vents where required to the loft to allow ventilation in the loft space.
Loft insulation is fitted in-between your ceiling joists and then cross laid to bring your insulation up to the recommended depth.

Loft insulation usually takes approximately one hour to install but the time does depend on the size of the house and other factors, such as access.
Our installers ALWAYS utilize dust sheets, and other floor protection to ensure that your floor and its coverings are fully protected.

What type of insulation is used?

Insulation Solutions Scotland only use products which are approved by the British Board of Agreement (BBA).

 

Do I need to prepare anything before the insulation is installed?

We need to have full access to the loft area to ensure maximum coverage so all larger storage items will need to be removed from the loft area.
