Spray Foam Insulation
The attic insulation that we offer is spray foam insulation. Spray Foam Insulation is an expanding foam that is sprayed between the rafters of the attic. Once the spray foam is set, it will last 25+ years.
We use both open and closed cell foam. Open cell spray foam is most popular for attic insulation in domestic homes. It is easily retrofitted to existing homes. Open cell spray foam is a popular choice for domestic homes, old and new. Closed cell spray foam is mostly used in commercial builds/farm sheds or on old slate roofs.
When insulating the attic roof, the idea is to cover every nook and cranny. It is important to use vent cards to ensure that the wooden lats can breathe and to avoid moisture build up in the attic space. Vent cards are placed between the tiles, and the spray foam insulation, to create a 50mm air gap as required by building regulations.
