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:
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:
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.
What Our Customers Have to Say
They provided great service. The workers were very friendly and efficient in completing the work.
I have used Professional Roofers in the past and continue to be pleased with their professionalism, responsiveness and pricing. We purchased an old house that needed some roof work. Professional Roofers team (Patrick, Carlos, and Fernando) took us through the process and made sure that we understood each step. Professional Roofers also checked in to ensure that we were pleased with the work. Definitely get Professional Roofers to work on all your roofing needs!
I hired Professional Roofers to install a roof on our first home a first years back. Now, at our new house, I knew to call on Professional Roofers to do additional work. Patrick Arraya and his team were professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. This time, they installed new shingles on our garage, and gutters and eaves on our house. As always, I am overjoyed with their work. Already my neighbors' are asking for their information!
About 3 years ago, this company installed my family's roof. Thank you to everybody at this company, including the office staff they were very friendly and professional. I would recommend them to anyone who needs work on their roof.
Professional Roofers replaced my house’s roof last week. They did an excellent job and we were very satisfied with the work. Earlier, Adam from Professional Roofers came in and explained all details regarding the product, installation methods and warranties. Once I placed the order, I got a schedule. They came on time and finished in less than 2 days. They left the place clean of any debris from my old run down shingles that were already shedding lot of disintegrated shingle pieces. They used tarps all around the house. First day, I noticed that they had ensured that the roof deck was not left unprotected as there was an overnight rain forecast. They did the work in sections. All their workers used fall protection while on the roof, which shows their commitment to safety and human value. If you want quality and professional commitment, I would highly recommend Professional Roofers.
I have used this Company in the past and I have recommended them to many people. All the people have been extremely pleased with their work. I had a new roof installed yesterday and I am pleased with the efficiency. Professionalism, the cleanup after the job was done. They are the Best. Highly recommend to anyone needed a good job.

Diego of Professional Roofers did a great job for my place. His team dropped by to put a shield on the ailing roof prior to the rain storm a month prior to installation. Their prices are reasonable and competitive!
Professional Roofers replaced our shingles 9yrs ago at a far better price that another company quoted. When a storm damaged the roof, it was repaired the next day at no cost. Even later they did another repair, again at no cost. Their service and commitment have been exceptional. We are happy to recommend to family and neighbours.
Professional Roofers recently replaced our roof and eavestroughs, and we were very happy with the experience. Patrick came out to explain the process to us and answer all our questions. The cheerful crew (Mundo, David, etc.) arrived early and worked efficiently through some of the hottest days of this summer. Then Alexis and his partner replaced the eavestroughs. At the end of each work day, all the debris was cleared away thoroughly. (Our alleyway ended up cleaner than when the work had started! ) Fernando came to do a quality control check of theroofing work and ensure that everything had been tidied up.Patrick came back when the job was done and searched through the lawn for any missed nails. He emailed us photos of the finished roof. We can recommend this company to anyone considering getting their roof done.Thank you, Patrick and Professional Roofers!Pauline and Kenneth Hodge
We have used Professional Roofers on numerous projects and are always on time and on budget.
Came by to fix shingles on roofing they installed 9 years ago with no charge. Mentioned wind damage to our fencing. Told me they have a fencing team. Quoted several thousand less than quote I had. Restored fence to swimming pool building code standards with many new posts and even made a new gate in one day. Friendly personal customer service family business.
Great experience with Professional Roofers. Roofers showed up early and worked nonstop until job was completed.Would highly recommend this company.
Came out quickly to give a quote. Was on time and did a great job repair my roof.
Punctual, very friendly and professional. Did a good job replacing what was needed.
Recently did my parents' roofing after they experienced a leak. Overall well done
When our roof began leaking this past winter we didn't think much of it until the ceiling completely caved in. We had looked at repairing the roof in the past but everywhere we called completely ghosted us or left us uneasy.When we called professional roofers in a panic we were greeted by Fernando who was a godsend. He came in the middle of winter, got up on the roof and was able to do a quick fix to keep us dry and warm until it was warm enough to do the full repair.He talked us through all of our options without ever trying to "upsell" us and made us feel comfortable and secure.You may be asking, why are you writing your review 5 months later if everything was so great?! Well I wanted to make sure the roof was as amazing as the service and it absolutely was.The roof install was quick and clean and the roofers were even cautious of the baby bird nest we had in our yard. Fernando came throughout the week to check that things were running smoothly and everything was perfect.After 5 months we are still amazed at how lucky we got to find such an incredible company and will be calling to upgrade our insulation before the cool winter approaches.Thank you Fernando and your entire team for making us feel like family!
They arrived on time, finished on time and left our premises clean and tidy.
Alfredo guided me through the process, was easy and turnkey. The results speak for themselves, everything turned out perfect!
I contacted Patrick from Professional Roofers to obtain a quote for eavestroughs and downspouts. Patrick was both courteous and professional, providing us with a fair quote. The team from Professional Roofers arrived on the scheduled date and promptly completed the work. Afterward, both Patrick and I quality-checked the work to ensure our satisfaction. No debris was left behind, and the old eavestroughs and downspouts were removed from the property. Working with Patrick made the process seamless, and it was a real joy. I would highly recommend Patrick and the team at Professional Roofers to anyone in need of roofing services. Their professionalism, punctuality, and attention to detail are truly commendable. Thank you, Patrick, for making our experience a positive one!
We were extremely impressed with the professionalism and craftsmanship of Professional Roofers when they replaced our roof shingles a few years back. As a result, we reached out to Patrick to replace our eavestroughs and downspouts. Patrick promptly inspected the property and provided a detailed quote. The team from Professional Roofers arrived as scheduled, and Patrick took the time to check if we had any changes in mind regarding the placement of the downspouts. Once the work was finished, Patrick reviewed everything to ensure we were satisfied. The upgraded 4x3 downspouts look outstanding, and we are genuinely pleased with the new eavestroughs. The entire process was highly professional and satisfying, and collaborating with Patrick was a pleasure.We wholeheartedly recommend Patrick and the Professional Roofers team for any roofing or eavestrough needs. Their commitment to quality and customer satisfaction is evident in their work. Thank you, Patrick, for making this experience seamless and top-notch!

After a heavy rain we noticed a leak in the ceiling of one of the bedrooms. We contacted Professional Roofers and Sebastian Chiappori came the next day and gave us a quote and within the week the repair was done (just as thunderstorms were expected). We can't thank Sebastian and the installation team enough fir the amazing service.

I was impressed with the Professional Roofers team right from the start. They showed up bright and early and were friendly and polite. They were happy to answer all of my questions and did a great job especially on the clean up. The boss performed a final inspection of the roof before they left. And the price was good. I would definitely use Professional Roofers again. Jim.

I had no idea where to start with a roofing company-I mentioned to my accountant one day that I needed a roof- he said he did his a few years back and told me about Professional Roofers.Well, I’m glad he mentioned them!From my first call to them they were responsive. The sales rep explained everything and followed up after the sale to make sure everything was ok-he continued to be responsive and cared that I was happy.The installers were prompt, detail oriented and experienced.The site manager made sure to ask about satisfaction and updated me as needed.The price was reasonable (I had three other quotes) and I was well informed of all my options and warranties.Overall I was concerned that a roof was going to be some big hassle, and this process was seamless.Highly recommended, I see why the reviews are so good. Keep up this level of quality!!! It’s something all companies should aspire too! Thank you very much!
