There are myths in every industry, and the roofing industry is no exception. Unfortunately, these myths can cause homeowners to make the wrong decisions about their home. Some of these myths involve attic insulation.
Adding More Insulation Is Always Better
This is not always the case because after a certain amount of insulation is installed, adding more can hamper your roof’s ventilation. Without proper ventilation, moisture can get trapped in your attic. This can lead to mold, rotting and warping of the roof’s structure.
Roof Insulation Always Gets Worse Over Time
There are many kinds of roof insulation, and each has different properties. For example, different kinds of insulation have different R-values. The R-value is a way to measure how effective the insulation is at preventing heat transfer. The longevity and performance of attic insulation is measured by its R-value. As one of the top attic insulation and gutter replacement contractors in our area, we can discuss R-value in depth when you meet with us.
Insulation Can Cause Damage
Not all insulation is created equal so you should talk to a professional before adding insulation to your attic. Only certain kinds of insulation can damage your roof’s structure and are flammable.
