Even the most energy efficient roofing system is not enough to protect your home. That’s why it’s important to consider attic insulation and proper ventilation when approaching a re-roofing job. It is essential that a home’s roof, ventilation system, and insulation work together as a system. When they do, a homeowner will be able to feel the added comfort of maintaining their desired indoor temperature almost immediately. In addition to the interior benefits, proper insulation and ventilation help the roofing system last longer by keeping the roofing membranes cooler; prevent moisture in the roof system which can potentially attract termites.
When ordering roofing attic insulation, our customers often ask which insulation is the best. Insulation is rated using a term describing thermal resistance. That term is its R-value, which indicates resistance to heat flow. Putting unnecessary technicalities aside, the higher the R-value, the greater the effectiveness of the insulation. The qualities of the insulation that determine its R-value include the material, thickness and density. The insulation’s effectiveness also depends upon where and how it is installed.
Chase Roofing typically utilizes two major manufacturers’ insulation — Owens Corning’s AttiCat® Insulation Blowing Machine and Knauf Jet Stream 73.3.
