How To Insulate Your Conservatory Roof
Conservatory Roofs are very commonly too hot in summer, and freezing cold in the winter. Our Multifoil Insulation Kits are proven to create an ambient temperature all year round.
This guide will show you how to effectively insulate your conservatory for use all year round using our Multifoil Insulation Kits.
There are two types of Multifoils which can be purchased within the Kits – SuperQuilt Insulation & EcoQuilt Expert Insulation. Both are proven to save cost, space & labour time vs Traditional Insulation (Kingspan & Celotex).
Read our step by step guide below for further information and installation methods.

Installing ThermaFrost (Glass Only)
If the Conservatory has a glass roof, we recommend the use of our ThermaFrost Window Tint. This material will create a white opaque finish which will add privacy and also reduce sun glare by around 30% To view full installation details of this product, please visit the data sheet on the product page. Please note this cannot be used on Polycarbonate Conservatory Roofs.
Installing Timber Battens
Install 25mm wooden battens onto the existing uPVC and Aluminium framework. We recommend the use of our FastFix 50mm Self Tapping Screws. We would recommend to check the depth of your roof rafters as the screws are only designed to go part way through the aluminium frame.
Stapling The Multifoil To Battens
Staple either EcoQuilt Expert or YBS SuperQuilt to the underside of the wooden battens. This will have then created an air cavity between the multifoil and Polycarbonate/Glass Roof. We recommend stapling at 300mm intervals and using our Heavy Duty Staple Gun and 14mm Staples.
Taping and Sealing Insulation
Tape and seal all overlaps, cuttings and the perimeter with our ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape (75mm x 50m roll). We recommend going overkill with the Foil Tape as this will allow the insulation to act as a high performing vapour control layer.
Installing Counter Battens
Install 25mm counter battens beneath the insulation, screwing into the first set of battens. Most commonly these battens are installed horizintally. We also recommend nstalling battens around the perimeter too which the internal boarding will be fixed to.
Install Internal Finish
To complete the installation you can now fit either a plasterboard or more commonly a uPVC Cladding. This can be screwed directly to the underside of the counter battens. If installing Plasterboard we recommend not to use a foil backed board and also to use a 9mm rather than 12.5mm board, as this will help keep the weight to a minimum.
