Roof insulation plays an important role in reducing the amount of energy you consume for heating and cooling, and in turn reduces your energy bills. A home’s attic access, which could be an attic hatch, pull-down stairs, or a knee-wall door, often, goes un-insulated. By air sealing attic access, you can significantly reduce your heating and cooling costs. The roofing professionals at Ray’s Roof are here to provide you with peace of mind.

Insulation levels are referred to by R-value. The R-value of a given insulation is an indication of how well it resists the transfer of heat. The higher the R-value, the better it is at slowing heat loss or gain. Listed below are the most common ways to achieve the recommended insulation levels:
Install moisture-resistant sprayed-on polystyrene insulation on top of the existing roof.
Install rigid insulation between the roof decking and the upper membrane.
Insulate above a dropped ceiling or in an attic with loose-fill fiberglass or cellulose, or fiberglass batt insulation.
