Vaulted Ceiling Insulation Requirements: All You Need To Know

Vaulted Ceiling Insulation Requirements

Vaulted Ceilings can be a beautiful addition to a home - however due to the nature of the room it can be very costly too warm up and to maintain the warmth! This article will run through all you need to know about vaulted ceiling insulation requirements and how we as a company can help you.

It’s important to keep your home warm and protected from the elements outside. Those with older properties and large homes often struggle with costly and ineffective home improvements to keep things comfortable.

Thankfully, when it comes to your vaulted ceiling insulation requirements, there’s a new innovation on the market: spray foam insulation.

This multi-purpose product is ideal for vaulted ceilings, as it can be sprayed and applied straight onto the roof between rafters. An industrial foam, it is mixed with water in specialist equipment, and sprayed directly onto the roof.

The foam expands to fill the area around it, before drying out. After a 24-hour period, the foam is completely solid, creating a barrier directly on the roof against the cold outside.

The spray foam can then be either left as is, visible, or can be covered to create a new ceiling material. However, many people leave it open as the foam is an off-white colour and won’t attract dust, so remains bright… and is a good conversation starter as well!

Spray foam insulation makes for such a good insulation as the nature of it is that it fills any space, creating an effective seal against the outside world.

With that in mind, here’s our guide to vaulting ceiling insulation requirements, and how spray foam can help you effectively work around them…

Vaulted Ceiling Insulation Requirements

The installation of spray foam can be completed within a few hours, and after a 24-hour period will be completely dry. Our team of expert installers agree to only make recommendations appropriate to the property, and to stick strictly to budgets

Why Spray Foam Does It Better

If the vaulted ceiling is in an attic space, traditional insulation lines on the floor of the room rather than against the ceiling. Opting instead to have spray foam insulation applied straight onto the roof reclaims the floor space but also the whole room – as it won’t be ‘above’ the warmth of the insulation.

Installing spray foam doesn’t require any planning permission or third-party administration, and, in some cases, it can offer structural support to the property.

Properties with vaulted ceilings can be extremely expensive to heat, due to the nature of the roof. However, effecting a proper seal against the outside world combats the need for constant heating and cooling.

Existing customers of spray foam insulation report saving up to 40% from their household energy bills immediately. The average UK household will therefore make back the investment made for installation in less than three years!

Less energy usage in a property has a large impact on energy efficiency, and spray foam insulation has been proven to be the most eco-friendly on the market.

If a property is listed either for sale or for rent, an Energy Performance Certificate must be graded and granted. With Icynene applied, the energy efficiency grading will be improved, making the property more desirable to potential buyers or tenants, and easier for estate agents to manage.

As a chemical spray rather than adhesive panels, spray foam insulation should only be installed by specialist technicians. Technicians must be British Board of Agrement (BBA) accredited and sign up to a code of conduct.
