About this deal

These 150mm diameter holes were cut for the adjoining bathroom extractor fan (bottom), a tumble dryer vent (centre), and the utility room extractor fan (top).

Flat hatches Cut the self-adhesive foam tape to size and stick it directly to the frame facing upwards (into the loft space). Well, this is actually a design feature and is not a fault of the housebuilder (or because there’s an unseen hole somewhere in your roof! The insulation will both slow heat loss and add ballast to the hatch to improve the seal at the weatherstripping. Insulating your loft hatch can massively improve your overall insulation levels, lowering heating costs and carbon footprint and keeping your living areas warm and cosy.The ideal way to seal these service penetrations is with an airtight "grommet" built into the wall construction. Out of interest, the joiner told me to fit an extra catch on the door so it doesn't drop down accidentally. But, if that's not enough, I've rounded up 20 ways you can exercise and get fit without spending a penny, both outdoors and at home. They have various options and for people wanting a top quality, and energy-efficient, sealed loft space.

So, can anyone recommend an insulation strip that will offer flexibility to allow the catch to work as well as offering a similar level of insulation. If you’re lucky this only causes heat loss in the winter and brings attic heat into the home in the summer. The first stage of draughtproofing is to identify any areas where air is entering or leaving your home.

One of the most common deficiencies on a Home Inspection Report is a poorly sealed and insulated attic hatch.As for insulating the loft side of hatch, you can simply glue/silicon on a slab of solid foam insulation, Eg. If your Wizz Air flight has been delayed or cancelled in the past six years AND the airline refused to refund you for additional costs incurred, such as replacement flights, you may now be able to get your money back. The best method is to add soft "brush pile" seals around the contact surfaces, however this is a specialist job that involves dismantling the window and can be expensive. When more than one property shares a loft, the GL251 Lockable Drop Down Loft Door prevents access to the roof space.

The loft ladder supplier Fakro (from who we get most of our ladders) have a fantastic range of ladders that actually include the hatch and casings all attached together. All featuring an adhesive backing down one side for easy installation, they're compliant with British Standard 476-22 having been fully tested, and have all the relevant approvals.

If you intend to insulate the loft and draught-proof the hatch yourself, it is imperative you take safety seriously.
