Floor Insulation

When installing flooring, whether you’re renovating an existing building or room or working on a new build, ensuring that you have effective and high performing floor insulation is essential. By installing floor insulation, you improve the thermal envelope of the building, creating a complete seal around the building and reducing the potential for heat to escape. As well as reducing heat loss, installing floor installation can also help to minimise sounds created by floorboards, reduce drafts and create a warmer floor surface.

Take a look at our guide to insulating a floor to find out more about the steps involved and which products are best for your project.

Floor insulation boards

Insulation boards are some of the most popular forms of floor insulation available. Most floors are suspended floors, meaning there is a gap between the floorboards and the surface below – the boards will be resting on joists. If this is the case, there will be voids between the floorboards and the surface below, which can massively contribute to heat loss and energy costs. Filling these gaps with insulation boards can not only keep your home warmer, but can also help keep energy costs down.

Insulation boards are most popular for flooring insulation because they come in rigid boards that are easy to cut into the shapes required. Additionally, insulation boards are incredibly lightweight and relatively thin, whilst still providing high levels of insulation. 

There are a number of ranges of floor insulation board available to choose from.
