INSULATION BOARDS

Room In Roof Insulation is where insulation boarding is installed in between the rafters underneath the existing plasterboard walls to help keep the heat inside. The rigid foam insulation boards are generally made from polystyrene or polyurethane.

Insulation boards are placed in between the space in the loft rafters and provide a protective layer against the cold outside, they also keep warm air inside the building.

This type of firm insulation will create a completely waterproof barrier that prevents the warm air escaping.
