Did your roof keep you warm this winter?

Layered loft insulation

Spring has definitely arrived here in Cheshire and we’re enjoying the consistent, undramatic weather while it lasts!

With the seasons taking a turn for the warmer, now is the perfect time to take stock of how your home fared during the coldest months:

  • Was your central heating running significantly more often than in the past month?
  • Are you someone who likes to stay toasty warm all year round or do you wait until your teeth are chattering before you switch on your radiators?
  • Have a look at your heating bills from winter, how much did it cost to keep your home at a comfortable temperature?

Bear in mind that we experienced a very mild winter, especially in contrast to previous years, and you may find your answers surprising.

Glass fibre loft insulation

Maxiflow recently installed a new roof on a house in Littleton, Cheshire and we took the opportunity to document the insulation process.

We wanted to demonstrate that insulation is an integral part of a well-constructed roof and should not be an afterthought.

We have worked on many properties where insulation was fitted on its own, and even with top-quality workmanship it can often fall short of the complete coverage provided when installed with a new roof.

We installed rigid PIR insulation, topped with 7 layers of quilt fabric, providing this house with unparalleled heat retention.

So it’s worth considering the effectiveness of your current insulation while the weather is fair, because this winter you could end up saving a lot of money off your heating bill. plus, you’d be doing your bit for the planet by reducing your carbon footprint!
