“Stuffed Loft – Squashed Insulation – Lift Your Loft Stuff”
GBE Slogan: About


  • 80% of homes rely on loft space for storage of possessions and belongings
  • Speculative Housing Developers are regulated to highly insulate roofs (most of the time they do) but not provide loft storage space
  • 80% of homes use their highly insulated loft space for storage
  • 80% of homes let their possessions squash their thick loft insulation
  • 26% of homes do not realise that squashed insulation does not work as well
  • Squashed loft insulation loses over twice as much heat in winter as lofty loft insulation
  • Squashed loft insulation permits solar heated lofts (>40 degrees C) to conduct heat downwards and overheat the top floor rooms in summer
  • Lift Your Loft Stuff and put it on a Raised Storage/Access Deck
  • Let your loft insulation do its thing
  • Close the Performance Gap
