A residential roof may seem like it has a relatively simple structure. However, a high-performance residential roof is actually a marvel of modern engineering, and central to its performance is quality insulation. Good roofing insulation is integral to your home’s comfort and energy costs. It also increases the lifespan of your roof.
At J&J Roofing, we specialize in providing Roseville residents with quality residential roofing, insulation, gutters, and repairs. Read on to learn why you should invest in quality insulation upgrades for your home.
Here are the top reasons to invest in your insulation:
1. It Prevents Ice Dams and Damage They Can Cause.
Ice dams can build up in winter months as freeze and thaw cycles occur. They trap water on your roof and add to the weight on your roof. All of this adds up to a greater risk of roof damage and an increased need for repairs. Ice dams are typically caused by poor insulation in your attic which allows heat to escape from your home and create drainage that eventually refreezes. By upgrading your insulation, you reduce the chances this will occur.
2. It Saves on Your Energy Costs.
If your energy bills are higher than you want them to be, it might be time to take a look at your insulation. Better insulation in your roof can help to reduce your overall energy costs. It also means your HVAC won’t have to work as hard, which can significantly reduce your system maintenance costs over the years.
3. It Creates a More Comfortable Home.
High-performance insulation inside your roof is key to retaining heat inside your home and maintaining a more comfortable temperature during the hot summer months. It also helps to keep drafts out of your home and protect your family during strong storms with high winds.
Think of insulation like an extra blanket when you’re cold. This added barrier helps keep the living space in your home at a more stable temperature no matter what the weather’s like outside, an effect known as a thermal envelope.
