Nick, an experienced loft converter
in Norwich, needed a cost effective
solution for insulating his client’s
Loft Conversion. With current building regulations requiring a u-value of 0.18 in the roof, the cost of a loft conversion can quickly begin to add up. Finding the most cost effective materials that deliver the required performance is paramount.
After speaking to SuperFOIL ’s technical advisor’s, Nick was given a solution using SuperFOIL SF40 with a 35mm insulated plasterboard for a u-value of 0.18. SuperFOIL’s technical team provided u-value calculations for the building inspector and support finding a competitive discount deal from a local supplier. Nick had the information and confidence of knowing he could achieve his goal and reduce his overall material cost for his customer.
Built in 1871 as a police station with
four cells and accommodation for
the constable and his family; this
imposing Grade II Listed property has
been renovated to combine the best
of traditional materials and craftsmanship, with new technologies.
Caroline and Peter approached SuperFOIL to find solutions for their project and they chose SuperFOIL SF40 to bring the property up to the high thermal performance they required. SuperFOIL offered solutions to exceed the required u-values under building regulations. Caroline chose 2 layers of SF40 in the roof area to achieve 0.14 and a single layer of SF40 in the walls to achieve 0.23 keeping the structure thin enough to retain the period features that were so important to this historic building.
Herefordshire Housing Association is investing £3.5 million over 5 years to increase energy efficiency in their existing properties. Because the houses were occupied, all improvement works needed to be carried out from the outside to minimise the impact on the occupants. With a u-value target of 0.30 W/m2.K, traditional insulation was too thick.
SuperFOIL worked very closely with Hereford Housing Ltd and Merriman Roofing Contractors Ltd to offer a bespoke solution. SF40 was up to the challenge achieving 0.26 W/m2.K, significantly exceeding their target value. A single layer of SF40 provided maximum performance, minimal thickness, improved air-tightness, radiant barrier, huge cost savings and less disruption to the residents.Read More
