I have recently retired into a modest 2 bedroomed bungalow. The previous occupant had recently died (approx 90) so bungalow is “out of date”. I am not DIY inclined, so my guidance would be somewhat amateur.
We have noticed now that the bungalow gets too hot for us, so I will have to spend, but spend on a budget.We have a few options, installation of one/two Velux type windows, presumably “all in “ cost of £2000.00.
Change the insulation (should I remove old?), and replace with Kinsman (My spelling may be wrong-please do correct me), it comes like silver bubblewrap. Do I secure it to the floor? , or the sides of the “A" shaped roof? No, I have no plan to convert it to an extra room, though at a later date that might improve the price.
The attic is about 10% boarded, so may be good to completely board it.
Finally I see no air vent bricks, or no gaps in the eaves, for air circulation.
