    Attic insulation

    Loft Specialists

    I want to have insulation added to my attic but it isn’t tall enough to stand up in. Will this be an issue? Is there anything I can do to take it easier to work in? Will this likely affect how long the work will take and the cost of the job?

    "The cost will depend on the ridge height minimum. Below 1.5m is a problem for standard insulation but there are alternative insulation methods."

    "No, it won't affect the work. However you can add insulated plasterboard, this should be fine."

    "Ideally, your loft insulation should be 270mm thick according to building guidelines."
