Can I double up on the insulation?
Yes, you can do two layers of the EcoQuilt Expert Insulation. We recommend using a 25mm wooden batten over the first layer of insulation and attaching the second layer to the wooden battens. Or if the rafters of your loft are long enough you can recess the first layer of insulation into the rafters and then the second layer can sit across the rafters.
What should I use to cut the insulation?
In this kit, we provide a pair of 10” multifoil insulation scissors which are perfect for the job.
Do I need to overlap the insulation?
Yes, you do need to overlap the insulation otherwise you won’t get the best thermal performance. We don’t recommend taping and sealing the insulation in this application so overlapping the insulation will stop any draughts from getting in and warm air from escaping.
Will the foil insulation cause any problems with damp?
No, actually this will help prevent damp and mould and it’ll help reduce the risk of condensation.
Do I need any specific PPE to complete this job?
No, you don’t need any protective clothing, masks, or safety goggles as there are no harmful fibres in the insulation.
Can I board over this insulation?
Yes, you can board over this insulation by adding wooden battens over the top of the insulation and attaching what you’d like to board over with to the wooden battens.
