Insulation under suspended floorboards in a old house

Ground floor insulation to make floors warm

Insulation isn’t just for lofts!

Living in a Victorian house with suspended wooden floorboards can cold and draughty. Damp air moves up through the floorboards making the room hard to heat.

My research also found that you can save money (click here) on our heating bills if you insulate. In 2013 I insulated inside of our external walls and have really noticed the difference, solving our condensation problem as well (see here).

There are lots of websites showing the process for example (see here). Its a great time to check under the floorboards for anything that could be damaging your building, e.g. piles of soil, rotten joists or even water leaks.

While the floor is up, it is also a great time to add in new sockets and electrics. Need an electrician contact Leon here.

The staircase in your new loft conversion is very important says Richard Jackson

It has a job to do, to look great and blend in

Richard uses bespoke staircases made by local Joiner’s shop. All quality redwood timber. Traditional methods used so no squeaking noise as you step from tread to tread.

Richard also takes great care to match your existing newel posts and spindles, you can have them turned on a lathe, at a local workshop of your style is not available off the shelf. Beach wood is best as it is stronger.

5 star review for Richard Jackson, Jackson Loft Conversion, Brighton

“Complicated job which involved lowering our existing ceilings”

“Communications, was very professional in his approach”

“Rich worked with us over summer 2018 on our loft conversion, a complicated job which involved lowering our existing ceilings. His ideas and input at the start were invaluable in getting the project off the ground, when we were unsure as to whether or not it would be possible. Once work commenced, Rich was very responsive in terms of communications, was very professional in his approach, and the standard of his work was excellent throughout. We would have no hesitation in recommending him!”

This is due to the complexities of the building process e.g. combining steel, timber and roofing disciplines. Knowledge of building regulations is vital.

Insulation controls the temperature of your home

Insulation is a big part of the loft conversion build and can be very time consuming. Your quote will come with standard Celotex insulation, if you require something different this is not a problem. Remember the thicker the insulation the less you will have to heat the room. For a FREE estimate please email Richard through this contact form to organise a suitable time to pop round.
