Until the early 2000s, regulations did not demand insulation. The result is that the average house consumes 250 kilowatts / m² / year that is to say, three to five times more than the current buildings.
Redoing the roof insulation and replacing windows with double glazing will reduce by 40 to 50% the loss of energy and heating bills.
Isolating the attic is a benefit to all the inhabitants of a house.
We also gain in comfort by eliminating drafts in winter and by keeping your home cooler in the summer.
The Grenelle de L’Environnement confirmed this priority by increasing financial aids for this work:
insulation tax credits, windows replacement... are available depending on your situation.
In addition to isolating the attic, wall insulation is also recommended. In order to avoid losing interior surface and redo its decoration, it is better to make a wall insulation from the outside, for example during a restoration.
When we rearrange the layout of your attic, we take great care of its insulation.
In addition, we also work to insulate the parts of the attic the can not be transformed into habitable space, usually at floor level.> View the catalog special "isolation" in PDF format
