Seal it first; develop it later

The roofs of newly-constructed houses must be insulated as stipulated in the Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEv). Should you not (or not yet) wish to develop your attic storey as living space, you can insulate the attic floor instead of the pitched roof. This can be done quickly and inexpensively. Modern attic insulation solutions even allow you to access the attic afterwards, and use it as a storage space. A special thermally-insulated attic ladder helps you to maintain the good insulation values.


Well-advised with mineral wool insulation materials

Insulation mats made of mineral wool are lightweight and easy to lay “from the roll”. Prior to this, a vapour barrier should be applied to the base floor in order to protect the insulation layer from rising damp from the house interior. The insulation mats protect the storey beneath them against cooling down in winter and against the effects of heat in summer. They improve the fire protection and sound insulation in your home. 

Inexpensive attic insulation

Insulation felt made of glass wool can also be used to fulfil the insulation requirements laid down in the EnEV easily and inexpensively. If the attic storey is not utilised, insulating felt can be laid on the storey floor. If the attic storey should remain permanently accessible, the insulation material is positioned between the supporting beams, the height of which accords with the insulating material thickness and onto which, for example, running boards are laid. When laying thermal insulation, all connections must be made thermal bridge-free. Here, too, a vapour barrier should first be adhered across the entire surface and sealed to make it air-tight.
