How much will it cost to buy enough insulation for a 5 bedroom new build in the UK?

The cost to buy enough STEICOtherm insulation for a 5-bedroom new build in the UK would depend on several factors, including the size of the building, the thickness of the insulation required, and the supplier from which the insulation is purchased.

To provide a rough estimate, we can assume that a 5-bedroom new build in the UK would have a total floor area of approximately 150-200 square meters. Assuming a standard insulation thickness of 100mm, we can estimate that the total area of walls and roof requiring insulation would be between 300-400 square meters.

Based on these assumptions, the total amount of STEICOtherm insulation required for the building would be between 300-400 square meters multiplied by the thickness of the insulation required (100mm). This gives a total volume of insulation required of between 30-40 cubic meters.

The cost of STEICOtherm insulation can vary depending on the supplier, location, and quantity ordered. However, as a rough estimate, the current cost of STEICOprotect dry insulation in the UK is around £30-40 per cubic meter.

Therefore, the estimated cost to buy enough STEICOtherm insulation for a 5-bedroom new build in the UK, based on the assumptions above, would be between £900-£1,600. It’s important to note that this is a rough estimate, and the actual cost can vary based on specific project requirements and supplier pricing.

In order to give a more accurate estimate of the cost of Steico Flex 036 insulation for a 5-bedroom new build in the UK, we would need the following information:

  1. Size of the rooms: The dimensions of the rooms, including their height, width, and length, would help to determine the amount of insulation needed.

  2. Thickness of the insulation: The thickness of the insulation will impact the cost, as thicker insulation will require more material.

  3. Location of the build: The location of the build, including the city, can impact the cost of the insulation due to shipping and transportation costs, as well as local labour and materials costs.

  4. Other materials and tools needed for installation: Any additional materials or tools needed for installation, such as adhesives, sealing products, or cutting tools, can impact the overall cost of the insulation.

With this information, we would be able to provide a more accurate estimate of the cost of Steicotherm insulation for a 5-bedroom new build in the UK.

However, it is still important to obtain quotes from multiple suppliers and to consult with a professional insulation contractor to ensure that you receive a comprehensive, and accurate estimate.

What are the installation requirements for Steico wood fiber insulation?

The installation requirements for Steico wood fiber insulation will depend on the specific product being used and the intended application.

However, here are some general guidelines to follow:

  1. Preparation: The surface where the insulation will be installed should be clean, dry, and free of debris. Any necessary repairs or leveling should be done before insulation is installed.

  2. Measuring: Measure the area to be insulated and calculate the amount of insulation needed. Steico wood fiber insulation is available in different thicknesses, so be sure to choose the appropriate product for your needs.

  3. Cutting: If necessary, cut the insulation to fit the area being insulated. Steico wood fiber insulation can be cut with a sharp knife or saw.

  4. Placement: Place the insulation between the studs or joists and ensure a snug fit. If necessary, use staples or adhesive to secure the insulation in place.

  5. Sealing: If desired, seal any seams or gaps in the insulation to improve its effectiveness. Steico offers a range of sealing products specifically designed for use with wood fiber insulation products.

It is recommended to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and installation instructions for your specific product and to seek the advice of a professional if you are unsure about any aspect of the installation process.
