Insulating Your Roof And Other Areas Of Your Home

A chief advantage associated with foam spray is the fact that it can reach areas that other materials can’t. This is not only because of the way it works, i.e. the foam expands, but it is also because the foam spray is self-adhering.

This makes it much easier to use. You can apply it to the ceilings with ease, instead of needing to staple or glue sheets of insulation. You will be able to spray it underneath the floor without having to take up the floor first. This makes the installation process a lot easier and quicker, which in turn will lead to cost benefits for you and of course ultimate convenience. You don’t need to worry about your house being turned upside down for several days. All of these attributes – the airtight seal and the ability to reach difficult areas – make spray foam insulation one of the most effective methods available.

This leads to other benefits. The indoor air quality in your home will improve significantly. Do you currently suffer from asthma or allergies? This could be because of poor air quality, which is why spray foam is recommended for allergy sufferers. This insulation method can also protect your home against mold and mildew growth. Needless to say, you and your family will enjoy being in your home much, much more. It will be more comfortable and enjoyable to be in, as the insulation will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

From under the floors to in between the walls, spray foam is suited to all areas. However, spray foam used for roof insulation is something that deserves further elaboration. This is because roof insulation is of paramount importance, as America Roofing and any other reputable roofing firm will tell you.

You could make savings of up to 40 percent on your utility bills if you opt to have your roof insulated with spray foam. This is because 40 percent of your home’s energy leaves through the roof. It’s not difficult to understand why when you consider the fact that air travels upwards. When you heat a room the air is going to essentially ‘sit’ on the ceiling. Therefore, if you do not have the roof effectively insulated, the warm air is actually going to leave your home. All in all, you are reducing the effectiveness of any heating device you use, whether it is central heating or traditional log fire. It gets even worse in the summer if you are trying to cool your home with an air conditioner. This is because most air conditioning units are fixed high up on the wall.

When you take all of this into consideration, it is not difficult to see why spray foam roof insulation is an exceptionally important service. The airtightness of spray foam is vital when it comes to keeping the heat in your home during the winter and keeping your home cool during the summer. Without roof insulation, comfortable living is virtually impossible.
