Don’t let heat escape through your roof!!
Attic Insulation – The Facts
A roof that is not properly insulated could be letting up to 30% of your home’s heat escape which is costing you money.
For homes with pitched roofs and attic space, the most common attic or roof insulation solution is to put down two layers of quilted mineral wool insulation criss-crossing each other on the floor of the attic.
A properly insulation attic can save you hundreds every year on your home heating bills.
