“Room in roof” is a room within your roof space that is accessed via a fixed staircase. It will usually have sloping ceilings visible in the room. However, if there are full-width dormer windows present, there may not be any sloping ceilings visible.
A room in the roof could be a converted roof space such as a loft conversion or an original part of the design such as the upper floor in a dormer bungalow.
The UK currently has one of the oldest housing stocks in Europe, meaning many houses were built without energy efficiency in mind. This could mean that you are losing the use of valuable space due to certain rooms being draughty, cold, or hard and expensive to heat, you could also be losing up to 25% of the heat in your home through uninsulated roofs.
Free room in roof insulation at no cost to you will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, lower your carbon emission and reduce your heating bill, saving you £100s per year, in some cases £1000s.
