There are a few types of insulation that we at Quality Renovations can provide a service both for fitting or supply and fit.
Depending if you have an attic conversion or not you have a few options to insulate your roof and because you can lose up to 35% heat through your roof we strongly recommend to give your insulation an upgrade. The recommended value for an attic that is not converted is 300 mm of rockwool on top of the attic floor. The downsize of putting 300 mm of rookwool on top of the floor joist is that you will lose your storage space, the rockwool will lose his purpose if you put anything on top. If you plan to use the floor space or convert the attic then there is an other option to insulate your attic by rockwool or kingspan insulation beteen rafters, or for more insulation you can add plasterboard with insulation on top of the rafters depending of the height you have in your attic.
Internal Wall Insulation
Internal Wall Insulation is designed to reduce the heat being lost form your home, and is usually used in old houses built with cavity or solid blocks and in most cases there is a big lack of insulation or the insulation is very poor. To understand better an internal insulation or dry-lining can reduce the U-Value of a treated wall to at least 0.5 W/m² K which represents a 400% improvement in thermal efficiency of a typical solid brick wall. The downsize of an internal insulation is that it will reduce slightly the size of your rooms.
