Properly Insulating Your Roof

The roof is one of the most important aspects of any home, but many people fail to properly care for their roofs. In many cases, the roof doesn’t get any attention until it needs to be replaced. Fortunately, the best time for properly insulating your roof is when you’re having it replaced. PJ Fitzpatrick is the go-to contractor for roof replacement and insulation.

Information About Properly Insulating Your Roof

The primary purpose of insulation is to prevent heat from damaging your roof. In the winter, the warm air from your home rises up and out through the roof. Without proper insulation, this rising heat will damage your shingles and can cause ice dams. In the summer, direct heat from the sun beating down on your roof can also raise the temperature inside your home.

When your roof is properly insulated, the heat gets dispersed out through the sides of the roof. This is less damaging to the shingles and decking, so your roof will last longer. Proper roof insulation will also boost your home’s energy efficiency. It will be easier and more affordable to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature all year long.

What is Proper Roof Insulation?

When your contractor says they are going to insulate your roof, it means they are going to install baffles and reflectors that will direct heat away from your home. There are various techniques and materials used for roof insulation, including interior and exterior insulation. When replacing your roofing, our professionals can easily access your attic and other hard-to-reach areas of the home.

Benefits of Roof Insulation

Having your roof insulated offers several benefits. In the cold months of the year, your home will retain more heat. This will allow you to stay cozy and save on your heating bill. In the summer, the insulation will direct heat away from your home, so you can stay cool and comfortable. This allows you to save money every day of the year. Insulation adds an extra layer of protection to your roof that will extend its lifespan.
