Vermiculite Loft Insulation From Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire

So What Is Vermiculite?  

Vermiculite loft insulation is also odourless, clean and easy-to-handle. The material is very effective at stopping heat loss and, in warmer temperatures, is also a coolant.

It is a natural material of thin flakes which are very light and which also contain traces of water. When exposed to heat, i.e., when heat rises into the loft, the flakes expand to provide very effective and high quality loft insulation.

Vermiculite loft insulation does not irritate when touched and is fibre-free. Which is great for all those of you who are fed up with the irritating skin rashes when using fibreglass blankets.

Why use Vermiculite:

Instead of the more common fibreglass blanket loose fill vermiculite loft insulation can be used to insulate your roof space.

This type of loft insulation is growing in popularity as it is not only very easy to use but, because vermiculite is a completely natural product, it is much more environmentally friendly than traditional insulating methods.

Whereas the usual blanket insulation is supplied and fitted in rolls vermiculite loft insulation comes in bags or sacks which are simply emptied and raked into the gaps between the joists and the ceiling / loft floor.
