A high specification attic insulation system from Global
Warm your house not your attic
It seems that almost every time you open a newspaper or turn on the TV there is another report filled with doom and gloom about the environment, global warming, carbon footprints and rising energy prices. We are all encouraged to ‘do our bit’ to help the environment by recycling and fitting energy-saving light bulbs. But we all know these measures are not enough. At Global, we recognise that there are many people who would like to do more by installing a high specification attic insulation system in their homes, but are baffled by the choices and need sound advice and reassurance from a company that they can trust.
Be aware of major problems with attic insulation
Attic insulation, if not designed and fitted properly, can cause serious dampness and/or burst pipes. If the insulation is installed over the full width of the ceiling and stuffed into the eaves leaving no space for air to get into the attic, this can cause serious condensation which may not be noticed due to the fact that house holders are only going into the attic once or twice a year. If the insulation is installed with a gap left at the eaves to allow air in from the outside, the uninsulated gaps in the ceiling will be prime areas for increased condensation leaving you with damp spots.
What you don’t see also needs to be insulated
When customers get their attic insulated they don’t realise and are not informed of other issues that can occur. This is where the problems can arise. The majority of companies do not insulate pipes under the new insulation material or they do not use the proper standard insulation for the pipes. The customer is now at greater risk of burst pipes as there is very little heat getting up into the attic space leaving the pipes exposed to extreme cold conditions and the potential risk of burst pipes.
You get the highest standards with Global
We set out 5 years ago to ensure that we put together an attic insulation system that would be worthy of carrying the Global brand. We spoke to many different experts, examined many different products and carefully selected only the best products. The result is a system that we feel will offer our customers premium performance, long term peace of mind and the best value for money.

We fit the highest performing natural insulation materials and it has been tested to last over 60 years. We fit attic ventilation ducts to ensure air flow into the attic which helps to control condensation.

We fit a walkway as standard and insulate the trap door with the option of fitting a folding timber ladder.
