Insulation Installation

FREE LOFT
INSULATION

Without proper loft insulation a lot of the energy you use to heat your home will be lost through your roof.  The recommended depth for loft insulation is 300mm and this could save you around £145 per year on your energy bills if you don't have any insulation at the moment. We are able to 'top up' lofts that have less than 250mm/10inches of existing loft insulation.
