Room In Roof Insulation

If your loft has been converted into a habitable space then standard loft insulation is not suitable

Room in roof insulation comprises insulation boards that are placed in the spaces between the rafters (the diagonally sloping timbers that make up the roof). This is normally carried out by fitting rigid insulation boards, such as celotex or kingspan. Plasterboard is then applied on top of the insulating material to create the walls and ceiling of the room.

An alternative to using rigid insulation boards is to have foam insulation sprayed between the rafters, although this is not recommended for many properties as it does not allow air to circulate around the timbers, which can result in condensation and damp problems.

It is important that all areas of the roof are insulated, including gable walls, stud walls, party walls and chimneys. If any of these areas are left uninsulated then heat can will be able to escape and can potentially cause cold spots and damp issues.
