Since heat rises, you might have noticed that your attic space is quite uncomfortable. You should know that it isn’t just the heat of summer to be concerned with, but also the potential for your heated air in winter to escape. While laying down more insulation on the attic floor can make the living area more comfortable and control heating and cooling costs, it doesn’t do much for the attic space. If you want to utilize that space for storage or another use, you need a solution that doesn’t fill it with several inches of insulation batting.
Since polyurethane spray foam insulation is sprayed directly on the underside of the roof, this type of roof insulation doesn’t take away flooring space in your attic, and it keeps the hot sun from increasing the heat in the attic. Your attic will stay several degrees cooler in the summer, which also helps you control your utility expense in the summer.
Another advantage of spray foam roof insulation is that when a dense, closed-cell spray foam insulation is used, it resists water vapor so it won’t be damaged by a small roof leak or pull in moisture from the environment of your home. You’ll enjoy a nice, dry attic. It also works to strengthen your roof by as much as three times its original state and make your home quieter.
