8 tips for insulating your roof or walls

Do you have an insulation project in prospect and are you not yet sure how you want to tackle it? Then don't miss these ten useful tips! We are happy to help you on your way!


Start from the top
Aerolite Soft Touch

With good roof and ceiling insulation you can create a comfortable living space and save up to 30 percent on your energy bill. There are different ways to insulate your roof, depending on the type of roof you have. 
With a flat roof you can consider placing an insulation layer under the roof covering. If you have a sloping roof, you can place insulation material between the roof trusses. You can also easily do this yourself on the inside of a sloping roof

Then look at the insulation of your walls

Walls cover a large surface area and are essential for insulation. If you have a cavity wall, you can place insulation material in the cavity. Don't have a cavity wall? Then you can place insulation material on the inside or outside of the wall and finish with a gypsum board.

Choose the right insulation material

There are different types of insulation material available, and it is important to choose the right material for your specific situation. Do you want an insulation material that combines sustainability with ease of installation and excellent performance? Then definitely consider insulation with Glasswool.

Consider the acoustics

When choosing an insulation material, you probably immediately look at the thermal value. However, the acoustic performance is also important, especially if you live next to a busy street or close to an airport. While most insulation materials only provide thermal insulation, Isover Glasswool insulation ensures a perfectly insulated and quiet home. Are you a do-it-yourselfer? Then be sure to discover our Aerolite® Soft touch, Cavitybatt™ and Cavitylite® solutions

Consider the payback period of your insulation project

An important factor to consider when insulating your home is the payback period. This is the time it takes to recoup the costs of the insulation through savings on your energy bill. The payback period obviously depends on various factors, such as the size of your house, the type of insulation material and energy prices. But if you insulate qualitatively, you will need roof or wall insulation anyway. 

Take into account the increasing value thanks to your insulation project

ably faster than that of homes that perform less well in that area. Your home simply becomes more valuable if you insulate well!
