There is a wide variety of insulation on the market nowadays from glass and rock mineral wool for lofts and flooring, to new and innovative solutions for exterior and interior walls and cavities. Nowadays, insulation manufacturers can be contacted direct online or you can visit hardware stores to buy from them.
Different types of insulation
Insulation can be made from a whole range of materials that can make a big difference to the efficiency of heating in your home or business. Most of us are familiar with the blanket rolls that we can put up in the loft to cover the floor, but there is also loose fill and sheet insulation that may well be more appropriate. Then there are solutions such as cavity wall insulation and cladding for exterior walls.
