Insulate Difficult Areas
We were first contacted by this home owner in 2013. He added a storey to the family home that created a very large roof space. Traditionally used insulation would not create the thermal barrier needed to combat an area that size. We applied PU Foam directly onto the underside of the tinned roof area. The improvement could be felt immediately and the home owner was extremely thankful. The heat radiating down upon the tin roof and conducting through to the house below could no longer penetrate. The house was able to maintain its ambient temperature all day and night, all year round. Energy saving and efficient.
Fast track 4 years later and we were contacted to insulate difficult areas due to the location and shape of the renovated area. He knew our product would have no trouble being applied here. The angled cavity created by a dormer window and was difficult to access from inside the ceiling. We were able to gain access through a man-hole to inject the foam upwards to insulate difficult areas and completely fill the void. Easy, job done. The new room’s roof area was completely and efficiently insulated.
What was also great for us to see was how the original insulation had held up. As you can see, the insulation used when the home was still a single storey house had lost its shape and shrunk. This creates gaps, airflow and inefficiency.
Additionally, we could see that the foam we applied was still in the same conditions as when we applied it. Even more was to be revealed. The dust that continually settles in a ceiling had all but stopped.
If you notice the picture containing the silver ducting, you will notice tiny specks of white foam from the original installation. There is no dust settled upon the specks of foam at all! Consider this. The space created under a roof would be an extra place to store certain items. With Polyurethane Foam there would be no dust, no damp and or damage from heat. It’s almost like a loft space. The foam is sturdy enough to hold a certain amount of weight upon it or you could put light boards across the beams to create an even flatter surface. Energy efficient insulation and space creation as well. Savings all round!!!
