If you are getting concerned about the increasing expense of energy bills as a result of keeping your home warm in winters and cold in summer, you should consider warm roof insulation. Perhaps you are not aware of this kind of roofing service and how it is installed. Warm roof refers to the type of roof that is insulated at the level of the pitched rafter or even beyond and not at the level of horizontal ceiling joist or over it. Since this is such a difficult procedure, it is recommended you hire a professional roofer to get the job done.
Usually, this kind of roofing forms a part of an insulating structure covering the main part of a building. The reason for such an installation is to derive the benefit attached to it as it results to achieving stricter U-Value targets that is caused by an increase in the performance requirements of thermally adequate buildings. U-Value is a measure of the overall heat transfer coefficient; which is an indication of how well building conducts heat.
The benefits of having a warm roof in your home are not difficult to understand. Because of the insulation the loss of heat is very much reduced, meaning that in summer hot air will not be able to penetrate and in winter the hot air will not be able to escape the room as a result of which your air conditioner or the heater will not be so much strained and that brings down your energy bills and you enjoy better quality of life at home in more comfortable atmosphere.
Apart from this kind of insulation, you should seriously consider complementing this arrangement with another kind of insulation, which is wall foam insulation and is better known as spray foam insulation. Primarily there are two specific kinds of foams employed for the purpose. One is the open cell, and the other is the closed cell.
Though both have more advantages than the fiberglass variety, the two are rather different in the sense that open cell is porous and cheaper, but the closed cell is not. That’s why the non-porous closed cell results to giving wall foam that is waterproof, thus preventing mold formation that is injurious to occupants’ health. Additionally, wall foam comprising of closed cell increases the strength of home walls and enables the exteriors of your home to be more water resistant.
Over and above the benefits that you derive by having warm roof insulation is that it transforms your attic or loft to amazing living quarters.
