What You Need to Know About Insulating a Pitched Roof

Proper roof insulation is essential if you want an energy efficient home. A poorly insulated roof can result in a fair bit of heat loss from your home during the colder months as warm air rises upwards.

Luckily, you can stop this from happening by getting your pitched roof professionally insulated. If you’re currently considering getting a pitched roof installed or renovated, now would be a great time to look into it. Here’s what you need to know: 

An insulated pitched roof will keep your home considerably warmer

Your entire household will be glad that you got your roof insulated as we get into the chillier months! Effective insulation material will work to retain heat within your property and prevent heat loss through the roof.

UK Building regulations now require that pitched roofs are insulated

This can differ depending on where you reside, so take a look at the rules for your region when getting a pitched roof insulated.

Insulating your pitched roof is great for reducing your energy bills

An uninsulated roof can be a major cause of heat loss in a property. Keep your heating bills on the lower side by investing in pitched roof insulation. It should be seen as an investment as you won’t need to do it again for a few decades and it’ll pay itself back with the money you’ll save on energy bills.

Can you insulate a pitched roof yourself?

Pitched roof insulation is not an easy DIY project and we’d recommend hiring a professional with years of experience to carry out the task safely and effectively.
