Why is Multifoil Insulation So Convenient for Self-Build

One reliable way to improve the thermal performance of your house and thus reduce energy costs is through insulation. Insulating your home is an investment in reducing future energy bills. However, more and more self-builders are minimising their costs by insulating their homes themselves.

Their product of choice?

Multifoil insulation for self-builders.

Why is this type of insulation so appealing to homebuilders? The short answer is: Because it is convenient.

If you’re curious to find out what’s the more in-depth answer, then you should keep on reading.

MULTIFOIL INSULATION IS EASY TO HANDLE AND INSTALL

Compared to other types of insulation on the market, multifoil insulation is:

  • Up to 20% thinner
  • Up to 40% lighter

That makes it incredibly easy to work with, even if you are not a specialist. It’s a great option for self-builders who need to retrofit insulation into tight spaces.

We want to make the installation process even easier! That is why we provide an easy installation guide for the entire range of products available on our website.

Why spend money to hire an expert when you can safely install all the insulation your home needs on your own?

IT IS DURABLE AND ENSURES LONG-LASTING PERFORMANCE

All self-builders want to minimise costs. However, they don’t want to sacrifice quality to do so.

That’s one of the reasons why multifoil insulation is so popular with self-builders. Other features that make this type of insulation so appealing to self-builders include:

  • Enhanced airtightness. 
  • Radiant barrier. Reflects heat in the summer and traps it in the winter.
  • Multiple layers provide a high level of insulation.

Also, once you install our insulation products in your home, you won’t have to worry about dust, draughts, pests or osmosis altering your home’s insulation.

Our products last over 50 years with minimal loss of performance.

IT HELPS SELF-BUILDERS COMPLY WITH INSULATION STANDARDS

UK building regulations concern all self-builders. Said rules include insulation standards they need to achieve. To better understand what the insulation requirements are, you should get familiar with U-values.

The type of insulation you will need depends on the U-value you must achieve. The U-value indicates thermal performance measured in terms of heat loss.

As a general rule, you can remember this: The lower the U-value the better the insulation.

Different types of construction projects will require different U-values.

Your building control officer can give you the exact U-value you need to achieve.

However, it all starts with the type of insulation you will choose. Multifoil insulation for self-builders ensures top thermal performance.

If you want to achieve low U-values, we recommend investing in the best insulation.
