Room in Roof
oom in Roof Insulation grants are available to pay for the entire cost of having loft or attic rooms insulated. If you receive a benefit that qualifies, then you should be entitled to a 100% grant to pay for Room in Roof Insulation, depending on the type of heating system you have installed.
Many older properties that were originally built with a loft/attic room or ‘Room-in-Roof’ were not insulated at the time. If insulation was installed, it is often inadequate by modern standards. Loft conversions that were carried out more than 30 years ago are also likely to be poorly insulated, if at all. Many loft rooms are therefore cold and difficult or impossible to heat.
What is Room in Roof Insulation?
Insulating batts are secured to the walls and the sloping part of the ceiling. Slabs of insulating material are fitted between the batts and plasterboard is secured over the insulation. The room is then skimmed ready for decoration. In some circumstances, insulation boards can be pushed up into the roof behind the sloping part of the ceiling and also secured behind the walls.
If there is a traditional loft space above the rooms, this will also be insulated by laying rolls of glass fibre insulation on the floor of the loft. There is little disruption and the whole process is usually completed in a day or two.
