Don't Hesitate: Insulate!

Although we are only halfway through September, you could be forgiven for thinking that winter has begun a little early this year. Dark nights have well and truly taken hold, rain and high winds are battering the UK and temperatures, particularly in the evening, have plummeted. This has led to a rise in slipped tiles, roof leaks and in the number of cases of condensation whilst simultaneously causing people to think about how they can keep their home warmer for longer at a cost-effective price.


Energy bills typically peak during winter so it is important to reduce the cost. Damage to the environment must also be considered. It is a well-known fact that heat rises and consequently most of the heat lost from any building occurs at roof level: the need for proper insulation is clear. Making sure that the minimum of heat can escape is essential to maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature at a reasonable financial and environmental cost.

Here at Greengate’s, your local builder’s merchant, we offer several different types of insulating materials, as well as the ancillary products needed to make it secure. Our range includes:
