The Loftman Company has been involved in insulating thousands of homes for many years now. As such you can rest assured our experience and quality of work will leave you happy and warm. Loft insulation is a very effective way of preventing heat loss in your home. Around 25% of the heat you generate is lost through your roof so you can easily see why insulating your loft and be so effective at reducing this heat loss.
We offer a wide range of insulation materials. Whether you require your loft to be fully insulated or just a top-up, we have an expert team on hand to advise on the current guidelines to ensure you have the correct level and type of insulation in your property. It is really important to correctly insulate your home as it helps reduce your heat loss, improve your HIP rating (Home Information Pack) and more importantly reduce your energy bill and carbon footprint.
Insulation materials include standard mineral wool insulation which is cost effective and fire resistant. We also offer recycled plastic and sheep wool insulation.

Any items that you want to keep will be placed in your designated location within your home. Rubbish and unwanted items will be bagged up and taken away with us to be recycled wherever possible. We are licensed waste carriers and will always dispose of your unwanted items in accordance with waste disposal guidelines.
Our staff will help you to sort through your items to decide what you want to keep and once you know, they can help you put it all away, either in the loft or wherever else you decide.
