It’s fall now, which means that winter is coming up fast. How much, if at all, would you say that you know about roof insulation? Are you prepared for the cold when it settles in?
Make Sure to Install Roof Insulation for Winter
Don’t worry: most people don’t know a lot about insulation… unless they work in an associated industry, anyway. This is common, but it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t brush up a little on the info in order to get the best situation set up in your attic. “You may not realize how physical properties of density, volume and mass are vital to a good installation.”
The kind of fiberglass insulation that most people would think of is called “batts” and works by trapping air within it. Though it’s possible for homeowners to install this sheeting themselves, it’s more efficient to have a qualified roofer “install blown in insulation,” which works more effectively to trap air and keep your home warm (or cool, depending on the season). This type of roof insulation also has a more “uniform density” and can provide better coverage, so if you can, opt for this choice.
As with all installations, the quality of the thing that is being installed is key. If you choose the wrong roofers, then they may use blown in insulation that isn’t of good quality, which makes it all but useless in performing its job. Not all kinds of insulation are created equal, so don’t let yourself get swindled by a shady roofing company. Keep in mind that this job should take a while, if it’s a good roofer, in order to make sure every corner is insulated. If it’s quick, then, again, they may have done a sub-par job.
If you want to save energy throughout the year while also keeping warm in winter and cool in summer, then make sure that you roof insulation is the best that it can be. This is a worthwhile investment for sure, but not one that many people remember on their own.
