Insulated ceilings…helping keep you comfortable
An insulated ceiling in your alfresco area is the key to staying comfortable all year round.
Insulated ceilings are a clever way to help regulate the temperature in your alfresco area. Additionally these can enhance the feel of an indoor-outdoor atmosphere. And help keep you and your family comfortable!
So how does an insulated ceiling benefit you?
Extends your alfresco area
Alfresco areas with insulated ceilings allow a continuity of ceiling which eludes to a feel of still being indoors. But with the benefits of being outdoors, i.e fresh air and garden scents.
Insulated ceilings can be flat or vaulted. Whichever you decide, both add instant sophistication and elegance to your alfresco room.
Comfortable all year round
The purpose of insulation in a cold climate is to stop the flow of heat out of the room. That’s why it is worth considering an insulated ceiling for your indoor-outdoor room.
On the other hand, it offers benefits during the warmer months by slowing the rate of heat transfer i.e keeps it cooler.
Ensuring a comfortable temperature all year round will make you more inclined to entertain and relax in your alfresco area.
