In order to prevent heat from escaping the roof you can install a mineral fibre wool blanket on top of and in between your loft joists. Based on current standards, a minimum thickness of 250mm (10 inches) is recommended for best results. Fitting loft and roof insulation is really simple and should only take around two hours in most homes.
Loft space often becomes a storage area for homeowners, so it is important to think about this before arranging a survey. Check that access to the loft is clear and that someone can survey all the areas within the loft. This will ensure that your home gets the most efficient loft and roof insulation as possible.
