GreenStuf Thermal Ceiling Insulation Rolls
GreenStuf’s ceiling insulation blanket is manufactured from 100% polyester thermal insulation rolls, pre-cut to fit common ceiling joist spacings. The ceiling insulation blanket is also suitable to be used between floors.
They are a convenient alternative to the conventional insulation segments, in particular if the ceiling area is relative free from obstructions, as the insulation blanket can then be quickly rolled into place between the ceiling joists.
GreenStuf thermal insulation blanket rolls are designed for the thermal insulation of residential and commercial buildings and are a popular option in New Zealand homes.
It’s not difficult to calculate how many bags of insulation you need for your ceiling. Simply multiply the total length of the ceiling by the total width, to get the square metres area of the ceiling. Then take off 10%, to factor in timber framing, and divide this number by the amount of square metres in a bag. Round up to the nearest bag, keeping in mind that if you have too much insulation, it doesn’t hurt to create a double layer to use up any leftover insulation material.

Small Retrofit DIY Ceiling Installs – Is it a one-man job?
While it’s fully possible for one person to install insulation, before you take the plunge and go it alone, there are a couple of important factors to consider.
Check the size of the manhole and compare with the insulation bag (unopened). If there is barely room to push the unopened bag through and into the ceiling, then you have three possible options:
- Get someone to help you. This is by far the best option, and will make the whole job a lot easier.
- Split open the bag, and load the pieces manually up into the ceiling – this is quite consuming to do alone, and not recommended.
- Load the insulation bags through the roof. This will only work where the roof is tiled, and it comes with its own challenges, not least securing yourself against the risk of falls. This method also depends on fine weather.
Installing insulation in existing roof spaces is tough work, and wherever possible we would recommend you to tackle it together with another person. Avoid climbing up into a ceiling space in very hot weather, and if you must install during summer time, aim to start as early as possible and make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day.
