Insulation...

Regency Construction under takes the following insulation works:

Introduction to Insulation

Insulation will help stop heat being lost from your building and help to prevent condensation forming on the walls and ceilings. The installation of insulation could reduce your heating bill and reduce your CO 2 emissions.

Internal Wall Insulation

There are two methods of insulating internal walls.

The first method uses a specially designed plasterboard which has insulation material bonded to it. These insulated boards can be attached to the wall using the drylining method or using wooden battens. The thicker the board the better the insulation.

The second method is to attach timber or metal battens to the wall and filing the spaces between the battens with insulation and then covering them with plasterboard. The method is similar to Stud Wall construction.


According to Government calculations , insulating the internal walls of a three bedroom semi-detached house insulation could save energy of  of around £380 per year and reduce CO2 emissions by 2 Tonnes, compared to cavity wall insulation which would save £115.

External Wall Insulation

Walls of a building can also be insulated from the outside.

One method is the Insulated Render system. Sheets of insulation are attached to the building using either mechanical fittings or adhesive and then coats of render are applied over the insulation to produce a finish.

An alternative to Insulated Render is Cladding. In its simplest form timber battens are attached to the existing wall and the area between the battens is insulated. The battens can then be clad with a variety of materials including timber boards, timber shingles, masonry tiles and slate.

Floor Insulation

The thermal insulation properties of an existing concrete slab can be increased by incorporating a layer of insulation above the slab and then concealed with a new floor finish. The new floor covering could be:

Roof Insulation - Loft Conversions


If the roof space of a building is to be inhabited (e.g. loft conversion) then the roof will need to be insulated. This can be achieved by inserting insulation between and over the rafters and covering the insulation with plasterboard. The exact roof insulation design will depend on the design of the existing roof.

Loft Insulation

It is estimated that in an un-insulated building 25% of heat is lost through the roof. Insulating the loft is a simple and effective way to reduce heating bills. Insulating the loft yourself can be a unpleasant job and if not done correctly can cause problems with condensation.
