How Important Is Your Roofing Insulation?

Published by Andrew Schmidt

Not many people realize that insulation is crucial to your roof’s overall health and lifespan. A properly installed roof thermal insulation in Evanston will be cost-effective and protective. Learn more about the importance of roof insulation with these guidelines from Showalter Roofing.

Prevents Leaks 

Unfortunately, even small roof leaks can quickly result in huge damage to the ceiling of your home. However, unwanted water can often be solved without replacing your entire roof. Often, moisture issues in your home during the winter are not due to a leak. Rather, it could be an ice dam, which occurs when moisture in the warm areas of your home condenses when it reaches a poorly insulated attic causing it to drip, pool, and possibly run into the home.  

Retains Hot or Cold Air

Roof thermal insulation in Evanston works together with your heating and cooling systems to maintain your inside temperature. Quality insulation helps seal your roof to your house to prevent air leakage and wasted energy. This cuts down your energy bill while keeping your house cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Also, insulation helps reduce drafts and slows down heat transfer between rooms, creating an overall more comfortable environment in any season. Did you know? In our area, nearly 90% of homes are under-insulated?

Prevents Mold

Keeping your attic temperature-controlled and dry with the correct insulation prevents mold growth, resulting in a long-lasting healthy roof.  

Adds Value 

In addition to improving the quality and safety of your home, roof thermal insulation in Evanston is also directly related to the value of your home. Make the investment to save money in the long run.
