Attic Insulation

If you have inadequate insulation in your roof, up to 30% of your heat can escape, costing you money.

Attic Insulation

What does the installation involve?

To insulate your attic, fibreglass or mineral wool is rolled out over the ceiling of your home – to a depth of about 300mm (12 inches). The water tank and pipework will also be insulated.

A walkway to the water tank will be installed. Ventilation may be installed if required.

With the new insulation, if extra ventilation is required, Kingdom will install either soffit vents in your fascia board or vent tiles on your roof. Kingdom will assess the best method and discuss this with you before the work begins. Where your roof is insulated at ceiling level, adequate attic ventilation is very important; it reduces the risk of condensation build-up in the attic space, which can reduce the effectiveness of your insulation and cause damage to your roof structure.

Rafter Insulation

What does the installation involve?

Where sloped ceilings are present, this will be insulated by means of fixing an insulated board to the slopes section, skim coat or tape and joint completed over this, and finally a coat of white undercoat paint. With the new insulation, if extra ventilation is required, Kingdom Installation will install slate or tile vents on the roof.

What you should expect during the works?

  • The contractor will require the attic to be completely cleared before works commence.
  • Depending on the size of the attic, installing the insulation may take more than one day.
  • If roof vents are being installed, your contractor may need to erect scaffolding, which may be in place for 2-3 days.
  • Pipes and tanks above the level of the ceiling insulation will be insulated and a walkway will be installed to all tanks.

If your home requires rafter insulation, you may need to vacate the rooms where the work is being carried out.
