Roof Insulation

Welcome to the MGN Builders Merchants Roof Insulation category, where we dig into the cutting-edge solutions that revolutionize comfort and sustainability in modern construction. At MGN Builders Merchants, we recognize the important role that roof insulation plays in the development of energy-efficient and eco-friendly spaces. Join us as we explore the diverse range of insulation materials and installation techniques.

Is roof insulation the same as loft insulation?

Roof insulation and loft insulation serve distinct purposes but both contribute to energy efficiency. While loft insulation typically involves insulating the floor of an attic or loft space, roof insulation is installed within the roof structure itself. Each method prevents heat loss in colder months and heat gain in warmer months, but they are applied differently.

What are the benefits of insulating the roof?

Insulating the roof offers numerous advantages, utilizing products like fiberglass insulation, roof insulation rolls, and PIR insulation boards:

  • Energy Efficiency: Reduce heat loss with products like fiberglass insulation, leading to lower energy bills and decreased carbon emissions.
  • Comfort: Maintain consistent indoor temperatures year-round with effective insulation products such as roof insulation rolls.
  • Moisture Control: Prevent condensation buildup with moisture-resistant options like PIR insulation boards, reducing the risk of mold and dampness.
  • Noise Reduction: Act as a sound barrier using materials like superquilt insulation, minimizing external noise penetration.
  • Long-Term Savings: Increase the lifespan of the roof with durable options such as roof insulation boards, protecting it from temperature fluctuations and moisture damage.

What is the best insulation for roofs?

The best insulation for roofs depends on factors such as budget, space constraints, and desired thermal performance. Options include fiberglass insulation, roof insulation rolls, roof insulation boards (such as PIR insulation boards), and superquilt insulation. Among these, PIR (Polyisocyanurate) insulation is often preferred for its high thermal efficiency, moisture resistance, and fire-retardant properties.

How much does it cost to get a roof insulated?

The cost of roof insulation in the UK varies based on factors such as roof size, insulation type, and installation requirements. On average, homeowners can expect to pay between £1,000 to £4,000 for professional roof insulation installation. However, this cost can vary significantly depending on the specifics of the project and regional pricing differences.
