New Technologies in Roof Insulation
Polyurethane foam is the latest technology in roof insulation to hit the market and it has a wide range of applications. The great thing about roof insulation is that it deflects the heat before it has a chance to become stored in the attic. This is important because once heat enters the attic it can stay there for hours on end.
One common misconception is that foam roof insulation will make the roof of the building look different in some way but this simply is not the case. After foam roof insulation is applied it is then roofed over and the roof ends up looking just like any other roof on the block. Polyurethane foam is durable and rigid, so it won’t squish down if for some reason you have to get on the roof and walk on it.
Foam insulation has the maximum R value that you can get from any type of insulation on the market and it is over twice the R value of fiberglass. While other types of blown in insulation such as rock wool and cellulose will settle and lose their R value over time, polyurethane foam roof insulation never settles and will keep its R value for the entire life of the structure.
For industrial and commercial buildings that are difficult to keep cool, it works wonders and will make a building comfortable and pleasant to work in. For trailers and modular homes it works great particularly if you are living in a sunny climate. It is mixed and applied on the premises and wont damage your unit at all. With energy costs on the rise, now is the time to consider using polyurethane foam insulation to make your home a far more comfortable and less costly place to live.
