If you would like to use your loft as a living space, then we recommend you make sure that all the walls and ceilings are insulated. Retrofit room in roof insulation is installed by over boarding the existing substrate with 62.5mm thick insulated plasterboard. The room is then plastered, ready to be decorated afterwards. Any residual eaves are also insulated with loft roll insulation
Are grants available for room in roof insulation?
Yes, there are. If you or a member of your household is on a qualifying benefit, you may qualify for free room in roof insulation through the government Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme. Check out our grants and funding page for further details on the various schemes available.
New government driven standards
New government driven standards, that came into effect from the 1st of July, mean that householders who sign up to funded energy efficiency measures through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, will benefit from a new requirement to install additional ventilation in their homes, where required.
