Roofing Insulation


Signs That Your Roofing Insulation Needs Replacing

Roof insulation is a vital part of your roofing system its effect can be felt throughout your entire home. If you’re experiencing any, or multiple, of the below signs, there is a high likelihood that your roofing insulation has become damaged and needs to be repaired!

Fluctuating Indoor Temperatures

If your home is suffering from fluctuating temperatures, it’s worthwhile to inspect your roofing insulation. Inconsistent temperatures can result from rotting or out of place insulation. Ideally, your roof insulation would just need resetting; however, in many cases, replacement is required to resolve the issue.

Higher Than Usual Energy Bills

Poor roof insulation can result in your home becoming too warm or too cold, depending on the time of year. This translates into higher energy costs, as your air conditioning has to work harder to keep your home at a consistent temperature.

Animal Infestation

If animals (e.g., raccoons, rats, squirrels, etc.) get access into your attic, they can tear apart and nest in your insulation. Critters will also deposit feces, which can bring negative health consequences as well.

Damp Insulation

Damp insulation signals the end of your insulations lifespan. Not only is damp insulation incapable of properly performing its job, but it also encourages mold growth, which lowers the air quality of your home.
