Installing roofing blanket insulation in your home could cut down your power bills by as much as 35%, improve moisture control in your roof cavity and reduce unwanted noise. Roofing blanket insulation is typically made from glasswool or polyester with thousands of tiny air pockets trapped between the fibres. These air pockets help break up the flow of heat, making blanket insulation an excellent thermal product for regulating temperatures inside your home all year round.
Some roofing blanket products also come with a reflective foil facing. This helps reflect radiant heat from the sun away from your home in summer while providing effective condensation control in winter.

Moisture Control For Metal Roofs
Condensation issues are a real risk for metal roofs, particularly in the colder months as moist warm air from inside your home meets the colder metal roofing materials. Uncontrolled condensation can lead to ceiling damage and stains, timber rot and health risks due to mould and mildew.
Roofing insulation installed directly under a metal roof is one of the most effective ways to control condensation and protect your home from the risks.
Metal roofs are also prone to transferring noises into your home, such as aircraft noise or noise from heavy rain and hail. A glasswool blanket under the roofing material will reduce the transfer of unwanted noise, keeping your home calm and quiet inside.
The Environmentally Friendly Choice
Thermal insulation is one of the best ways to improve passive heating and cooling in your home, cut down on your energy use and reduce your environmental footprint.
At Pricewise Insulation, we supply a wide range of environmentally friendly roofing insulation products made from recycled materials using bio-based binders and free from nasty chemicals like formaldehyde.
