How Important is Roofing Insulation?

While many commercial buildings invest in a durable, waterproof roofing material, some business owners forget to invest in proper roofing insulation. Whether your roof is completely uninsulated or has less than optimal insulation, read on to discover some important benefits you’ll enjoy by properly insulating your commercial roof.

Lower Utility Bills

The primary goal of insulation is to trap warm or cool air in your building. Whether you’re operating your air conditioner in the summer, or furnace in the winter, insulation reduces the energy consumption of these two units and provides you with a comfortably controlled interior temperature.

Because hot air rises, your furnace can especially benefit from proper roof insulation. Insulation is measured in R values, with a roof insulation recommendation anywhere between R-20 and R-49, depending on your climate and other factors. Contact a local roofing expert to determine the R value needs of your commercial building.

Improve Fire Safety

One of the worst-case scenarios in a commercial building is a fire. In the unfortunate event of a fire, insulation can protect your roof material from igniting. Be sure to use an insulation material that is fire resistant to add another layer of protection to your commercial building.

Prevent Mold Growth

Climate control in a commercial building produces a great deal of moisture. Whether you’re heating or cooling, humid air can become trapped under your roof. Without insulation, this moisture can condensate on the interior framework and harbor mold growth. Insulation can be mold-resistant and protect your building and your air quality.

Preparing For Your Residential Shingle Roof Installation

Nice looking home

The day has finally arrived…the day of your new roof installation. You have selected your roofing material, chosen a color, and reviewed the scope of work to be performed. What can you do to prepare and what should you know about the roof installation process?
The process of installing a new roof creates a construction site at your home. There are several steps that should be taken to ensure that you, your family and your hope are prepared for the new installation.

Please keep in mind that everything used to perform the work on your roof needs to be as close to the house as possible, which requires access to the yard and driveway. All vehicles should be removed from the driveway and parked away from the structure. Also, anything around the perimeter of the property that would limit roof access should be removed.

All children and pets should be kept indoors in a safe place or off the job site.

Materials will be coming off the roof and may be present in the lawn prior to clean up. We will ensure that ALL debris will be removed when the roof is complete. In preparation, you may wish to cover all valuables in the attic and garage, as dust and debris could enter those spaces. Remember to cut off power to all roof attic fans.

Noise from nail guns, nails, hammers, etc. are used throughout the process. You should expect associated noise.

Satellite Dishes that are mounted on your roof may need to be moved to allow proper installation.

Your job will receive a final inspection from our field superintendent. He will ensure that any remaining debris or materials have been removed from the property and that the roof installation is complete.

Should you have any questions throughout the job process, feel free to contact our main office at 757-399-3066 for assistance.

If you’ve done any research, you’ve no doubt run across asphalt shingles and “architectural shingles” as popular options. But what is the difference, and which is right for your home? Let’s start from the beginning.
