Insulation And Roofing Material Upgrades

The use of insulation results in less heat loss during cold days and less heat gain during hot days. Insulation is a material that is typically upgraded during a roofing project. Your contractor will check your roof for leaks and will inspect the insulation that is located under the roof decking.

Insulation In Ceilings And Wall Cavities

A roofing contractor that features reroofing and insulation services will conduct a precursory physical inspection of the roofing materials and the insulation at your residence. The addition of new roofing materials and insulation will provide a home with a solid thermal envelope. A roofing contractor may feature energy-efficient shingles, tiles, and insulation products that could be beneficial to your efforts to reduce the amount of energy you consume on an annual basis.

The insulation that comprises an attic may be featured along the ceiling and inside of wall cavities. If an attic is unfinished, a direct approach can be used to access the insulation materials. If any ceiling tiles or wall panels were originally used to conceal the insulation, a contractor will need to remove these materials when they perform an inspection of the insulation products.

The Upgrades That You Select

The roof and insulation can be replaced separately. A roofing system may contain a decking system, felt paper, and a layer of shingles, tiles, or other roofing materials. A vented roof will improve airflow along the rooftop. Because the insulation is installed indoors, there is no need to be concerned about replacing the insulation while a roofing project is underway.

Your contractor may feature rolled insulation products, insulating sheets, and expandable products. Insulation may vary in how much thermal protection it will provide. The thickness and shape of an insulation product may have a bearing on how much energy loss is experienced during the year. If your energy bill has been high in recent months, you may want to choose a superior insulation product that is designed for use in extreme climates.

Before the contractor begins the upgrades at your residence, they will prepare a list of tools and materials that will be needed. You will be consulted concerning your preferences for the roof upgrade and insulation upgrade. Your roofing contractor may charge you a comprehensive fee that will include ripping out old materials, installing new roofing supplies and insulation products, and cleaning up your property at the end of the project.
