Pitched roofs have always been by far the most common roof type in domestic buildings. Regardless of the type or slope of the roof, it is the most important part of the building envelope contributing to heat loss and energy efficiency. When you reduce heat loss through your roof, you need less energy to heat your entire house.
The insulation of a pitched roofed building at joist level (cold attic) represents the lowest cost method of insulating a roof. One of the least expensive ways to do this is by installing mineral wool insulation between and on top of the joists. With this method loft insulation delivers an extremely high level of energy efficiency, with the exception of the eaves, where there is practical limit to the depth and thickness of insulation that can be installed.
Paroc pitched roof solutions create safe and sound living environments. Our insulation is durable, flexible and comes in a range of forms, all of which makes it easy to install tightly in timber frame constructions. The porosity of the material creates excellent sound insulation and non-combustibility gives the best possible protection from the fire.
