If you’d like to deep-dive into the exciting world of loft insulation then head over to or ultimate guide.

Below we list the branches disappearing and what the alternatives are if you still want face-to-face banking. Getting something totally free is likely to get a true MoneySaver's heart pumping faster than any cardio workout ever could.Important Note: Please do not send goods back to Roof Giant before speaking to the Roof Giant sales office. Well, this is actually a design feature and is not a fault of the housebuilder (or because there’s an unseen hole somewhere in your roof! However, they reduce the clearance area and sometimes get in the way when I'm putting large boxes up there. I did have terrible condensation in some parts of the loft last winter, dripping down from the roof onto the floor / hatch below (thankfully nothing in the loft got damaged) it wasn't the entire roof, just part of it.

Not to mention the comfort of rooms that have less of a draught, the seals will also block heat and make your air conditioning more efficient. Draught-proofing must complement insulation and vice versa, and one without the other will have a negative effect on your home. This generally requires the floorboards to be removed, and some form of insulation to be installed between the joists, before re-attaching the floorboards or replacing them with a modern plywood sheets. Existing drop-down hatches with attached ladders can be treated in the same way as option 2, but care will be needed to ensure the insulation does not interfere with the mechanism of the ladder.Cut the sheet to size and fix it to the topside of the hatch, with enough overhanging to ensure it lines up tightly with the insulation around it,' advises William Bown, director at Superfoil Insulation. Draught excluder tape is used to seal any aperture fully by filling gaps in frames and protecting properties from the elements. The ideal way to seal these service penetrations is with an airtight "grommet" built into the wall construction.

Even if the rest of your loft has been fully insulated, it is important not to forget the loft hatch.

Victorian houses were commonly built with suspended timber floors which are good for avoiding damp issues, but they allow significant leakage of cold air. Although you'll rarely feel cold draughts coming down chimneys (because warm air rises up the chimney, rather than cold air being drawn down) you can lose considerable amounts of heat through the 'stack effect'. A thermal camera survey is the best way to determine whether you have draughts coming underneath the skirting boards. The cold (blue) areas around the sides and top of the door in the first image are caused by air leakage.
