Roof insulation performs two basic functions:
· Acts as a thermal barrier for the top of the building.
· Serves as the base for the roof system.
Secondary functions include:
· Enhancing drainage using tapered insulation systems and stiffened roof decks.
Each project and roof assembly has its” own subtle differences that may lend itself to a particular size, type, or thickness of insulation. Additionally, the expense at insulation should be cost-factored in comparison to heating or cooling bill over the expected life of the assembly to determine the most effective insulation for a project. Your contractor, consultant, or manufacturer can all play vital roles in helping with the final decision based on R value needs, anticipated length of ownership, and local codes.
