    Insulating a bedroom ceiling on the cheap?

    Insulating a bedroom ceiling on the cheap? 11th Dec 08 at 1:04 PM
    Okay, looking for any ideas on how to insulate my daughters bedroom ceiling which is located under a flat roof which has no insulation!

    I really don't want to start ripping ceilings down to put insulation in and plasterboarding the ceiling again so close to Christmas and in a moment of madness which must be due to the cold weather we are having up here in the wild wooly wastes of the Northern most reaches of the Highland of Scotland I wondered if it would be possible to staple some form of insulating fabric to the underside of the ceiling to try and keep the bedroom warm.

    The only heating in the room is a radiator run from a woodburner but the room always feels colder than the rest of the house which must be due to the lack of insulation in the roof.

    Any fabrics out there that have good insulation properties, are easy to fix to a ceiling and relatively cheap?

    Would garden fleece be any good?

    This would just be a temporary measure untill next year when the insulation could be done properly.
