You are here :: Insulation
|If you are planning to use your cabin in all seasons, you will need to add some kind of heating.|
|To avoid costly heating bills, we would advise you to insulate the roof and the floor of your cabin.|
|This job is best done when the cabin is being installed, as it can be done to a better standard.|
|Cabins have pressure treated foundation bearers of 45mm or 68mm tall which sit on your base to support your cabin.
|Your tongue and groove floorboards sit on top of the bearers which leaves a void in between each beam.|
|You can therefore insulate between your bearers with either 40mm or 50mm thick Celotex type insulation.|
|You could just use thin 25mm insulation, but this does seem rather pointless when you have a larger gap.
|It is not much more expensive to buy 40mm or 50mm and do the job properly!|
|If we are installing your cabin we can also quote to insulate your roof and floor.|
|If you are installing your own cabin we can advise you how to insulate, and estimate materials required for you.|
