Insulating bedroom floor and sloping roof.

Post by doodmeister » Tue Apr 30, 2013 11:24 am

Hi, one of my bedrooms is partly within the main building with the loft insulated above and the floor over the hall below but more than a third of it also goes over the garage and there is a sloping roof as part of the ceiling. The garage is particularly cold and obviously there is not much natural insulation where the sloping roof is so the room can be cold. There is a radiator on a wall over the main building of the house but it's not sufficient and I guess i am losing much of it's benefit. Can anyone recoommend any options for improving the insluation in the floor area over the garage and the sloping roof? Thanks very much, John :-)
