3 Insulation Concerns Every Roofing Proposal Must Address

Posted on January 6th, 2016 by Applied Roofing Services

Every proper roofing proposal must address specific concerns. Los Angeles roofers must be able to offer proposals that address a variety of issues, such as insulation and how it affects the longevity of your roof.

From the type of insulation to the amount needed for sufficient protection, a proposal must be able to effectively answer any questions that may arise about the roof’s construction and durability.

Roof Installation

Puncturing
Insulation protects the roof’s membrane and provides a surface for the roofing material to adhere to. Roofs that experience high levels of foot traffic must have a solid barrier of insulation to prevent damage from hail and other debris. The right type of insulation and roofing materials resist puncturing and protect the interior of the building as well as the roof itself, from being damaged or compromised.

Condensation
Condensation is the result of water accumulating along pathways and in areas where temperatures change dramatically. It is important to use materials that prevent the accumulation of moisture and reduce water’s ability to collect in various areas of the roof. It also reduces the risk of water damage to the interior of the building.

Ponding
If water remains pooled in areas on your roof for longer than 48 hours, ponding occurs. This allows dirt and debris to collect in a specific area and the dramatic increase in weight can cause lasting damage to your roof. Ponding can lead to leaks and weakness that could eventually result in a collapse. Hence, it’s always advisable to check for the drainage of rain-water rapidly away from the roof before getting it insulated.
