Insulating sloping roof/ceilings
Have a chalet bungalow with 2 bedrooms and an ensuite upstairs. All have sloping ceilings and floor cupboards into the eaves. Rooms are extremely cold in winter probably because as a 1967 build, there is little or no insulation under the roof tiles. I've read on this site that materials like kingspan (?) and another (celo-something) can be fitted between rafters under roof tiles but this involves either removing the roof tiles or removing the ceilings and replacing and all that entails. Which method is preferable and which method is the cheapest? I'm a single pensioner and would be paying someone to do it. Which leads to another question: do I get quotes from builders or roofers or specialists?? Also, would the hoped for results be noticeable enough to warrent the cost? Thanks very much.
I'm doing a job next week with exactly the same build. Fortunately for my customer I can blow insulation down the slopes without removing any tiles, felt or ceilings, saving him a four figure sum. I would try to contact a local insulation installer, and if you are lucky they may have the know how and the will to help you out.
