Could You Benefit From Loft Insulation?
Lower energy bills & a warmer home...
With about a quarter of all heat loss escaping through the roof, according to the Energy Saving Trust, it can really pay to have quality insulation fitted in your loft.
If you have old insulation in your loft, here’s three reasons it’s worth topping up or replacing it:
1 – It will likely be less thermally efficient than the materials available today. Replacing it with a modern material will make your home warmer and save you up to £225 per year on your heating bills.
2 – It may only be 100mm thick. The current recommended minimum thickness for maximum efficiency is between 270mm and 300mm, depending on the material used.
3 – It may have been damaged over time, for example by water, birds or animals entering the loft space. This will prevent the insulation trapping the warm air it needs to have an insulating effect and in the case of water could be damaging your home.
Unsure whether your insulation is inefficient and out-of-date?
We’d be happy to inspect your loft insulation and advise you on the best solution for your home.
So, why choose Evolve?
As with our cavity wall insulation, we only install loft insulation materials that we know to be thermally efficient and therefore cost effective. The best quality, modern insulation will last for over 40 years with no loss of efficiency and no need for any maintenance. Therefore it should pay for itself many times over.
We install EPS bead insulation using a thermascopic bead lance that can extend up to 7.3 metres in length. This means we can reach previously inaccessible walls without any need for scaffolding or other access equipment.

It may seem wrong to talk about insulation and ventilation at the same time. However, adequate ventilation in your loft is essential to prevent condensation. If condensation does develop and cannot escape, in the long-term you could have more serious problems with damp.
To prevent this we can install soffit or roof vents in your loft if there is no other suitable ventilation.
Remember: as well as keeping your home warm in winter, loft insulation will also help keep it cool in summer.
Keep your home warm and enjoy use of your loft
Along with installing loft insulation we can also:
- Install loft ladders or stairs
- Enlarge or replace loft hatches
- Raise your joists
- Build loft platforms
- Install lights
- Insulate your pipes and water tank
The prices for loft insulation will vary depending on the size of your house and whether there are Eco 3 grants or Council grants available in your area which may cover the entire cost of the insulation or a significant portion of it. The team at evolve will be able to offer local advice to assist you with your enquiry.
Our Price Match Promise: Although we only install the best quality cavity wall and loft insulation, we match the price of cheaper, less effective materials!
