Advances in Roofing Insulation Technology

Because of recent technological advancements in insulation technology, now is a better time than ever to take a careful look at your home’s insulation. If your home in the United States was built prior to the 1970s, there is a significant probability that no insulation was put when it was built. This is due to the fact that insulation was not even required as part of the conventional building code until the early 1970s. Schedule a free roof inspection with our factory-certified Allentown roofing contractors to find out if your home is lacking in insulation.

Using polyurethane foam insulation technology, you can now insulate your home’s roof and prevent heat from entering the attic space, where it can remain for up to twenty-four hours or longer. Polyurethane foam is sprayed to the actual surface of the roof prior to tile or roof covering, so it not only insulates your property but also protects it from leaks and water damage, such as dry rot.

Because it is firm and robust, it will endure the lifespan of your home and will never settle, as other types of insulation do. You don’t have to be concerned about your roof looking different from any other roof in any way because it will look the same as any other roof in the neighborhood. Polyurethane foam may make a working area that has had heating or cooling problems in the past significantly more pleasant to work in for commercial and industrial buildings that have limited or no attic space to insulate.

Mobile and modular houses have a reputation for being hot in the summer, especially if they are in direct sunlight. With polyurethane foam insulation, another R19 can be added to the roof with just three inches of durable and aesthetically-pleasing foam. Why waste your hard-earned money on electric and gas bills when all you actually need is to have your home’s insulation upgraded?
