With the current rise in gas and electricity bills, more people are looking at the options of increasing their roof insulation to try and reduce their fuel costs. Around half of all heat lost in a typical home is through the walls and roof. Understandably then it is worth investigating whether your roof is insulated to the current Part ‘ L’ building regulations of Conservation of Fuel and Power. Insulating your roof is a simple and effective way to reduce your heating bills.
The government therefore are offering certain grants, to try and encourage more people to reduce their heat loss and create more energy efficient homes. If insulation is improved to comply with current regulations in conjunction with roofing works, the VAT rate is applicable at 5% instead of 20% for all works carried out.
GUTTERING, FASCIAS AND SOFFITS
Guttering is an imperative component to protecting a buildings foundation by channelling rainwater away from its base into a soak away or drain. Importantly it helps reduce water run-off which in turn reduces soil erosion. The external shell of the building is also protected i.e.. painted surfaces, render, brickwork etc helping keep the moisture out of the walls. Gutters and downpipes can be connected to storage tanks and collect rainwater for later use.
Guttering, fascia's and soffits can be manufactured from a range of materials, including pvc, cast iron, lead, zinc, galvanized steel, painted steel, copper and powder coated aluminium.
