Residential Insulation

Residential Roofing Insulation Experts

Your roof’s insulation contributes to the integrity of the attic ventilation and structure of your home.

The experienced team of Toronto roofing contractors at Professional Roofers is ready to insulate your roof to improve your home’s ventilation, protect its structure, and maintain temperature control.

There are various types of insulation that can be used to not only help enhance your home, but help homeowners avoid long term structural problems.

Types of Residential Insulation

Insulation is material that is installed on a surface to resist heat flow. That said, the purpose of roofing insulation is to maintain the heat in the roof’s system.

There are various types of materials that are used for roofing insulation, each of which are rated on a thermal resistance scale — this is more commonly known as an r-scale.

The r-scale helps contractors like us determine just how well a material will be able to insulate and resist heat. The higher the r-scale, the better the material will insulate your home.

Insulation fall under four categories: loose-fill, spray foam, rigid board, or batt or blanket. Our roofing contractors will help you pick the insulation that is best suited to your home’s unique needs:

Loose-fill insulation

This type of insulation is best suited to walls and floors in enclosed spaces like attics and roofs. It is most commonly applied on top of existing layers of insulation for extra durability or to fill in cracks and gaps. Types of loose-fill insulation include:

  • Cellular fibre
  • Glass fibre
  • Mineral fibre

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation (like SPF) is made from plastic resin and created on-site to be applied directly to the surface of choice. This spray-formula insulation is available in both low density and high-density forms.

Spray foam insulation is available in-store, but for precise results, you’ll want to enlist the help of professional roofing contractors like Professional Roofers.

Types of spray foam insulation include

  • Closed-cell polyurethane foam
  • Open-cell polyurethane foam

Rigid Board Insulation

Rigid board insulation, also known as insulating boards, is particularly lightweight. It’s easy to cut and handle due to the fact that it is typically made from foam plastic materials or mineral fibre.

Types of rigid board insulation include:

  • Expanded polystyrene
  • Extruded polystyrene
  • Mineral fibre rigid board
  • Polyurethane & polyisocyanurate boards

Batt or Blanket Insulation

This easy to install insulation is typically made of glass fibre and mineral fibre. It is best suited to larger spaces that don’t have any hard to reach small cavities. The advantage of this insulation is that it can be cut to fit into irregular surfaces, and conforms to awkwardly shaped surfaces.

Unsafe: Formaldehyde-based foam insulation

The Government of Canada has banned formaldehyde-based foam insulation since it’s been proven that being exposed to the material for long periods of time can cause long term health effects for an individual. Other materials are safe and regulated.

The Benefits of Insulation Installation

A properly insulated roof can greatly benefit homeowners and their homes. Consider how professional insulation services can have long term advantages:

Temperature Control

A well-insulated roof is ideal if you live in Canada where we experience both extreme ends of temperature. Insulation helps you to keep the warm air out of your home in the summer and helps you to keep the warm air in and cold air out in the winter. Ultimately, insulation helps you to maintain a consistent, comfortable temperature in your home.

Prevents Water Damage

As discussed, insulation can help you to control the temperature in your home. By extension, this helps to prevent condensation and moisture that gets caused by extreme heat.

Proper roof insulation is essential as this condensation and moisture can weaken your home’s structure, and lead to long term problems.
