Hot Hot Hot.....need help with insulating house!

Postby Dustyuk » Sun Jun 27, 2010 9:13 pm


I need help with a 60's house that is way too hot. It's an end of terrace, brick wall ends but timber constructed and timber clad to the upper floor. This on it's own is I think making the house very hot in the summer but to add to the issue the house has no loft space so the upstairs ceilings are right next to the roofline.

Anyone have any ideas on what can be done? The wall cladding needs replacing so is there any product that would reflect the sun/heat but that would keep heat in for the winter?

Any help greatly 2 year old son is roasting the house!
