Your roof’s health is not only dependent on the condition of your shingles. It also needs sufficient attic insulation to maintain durability and reliability.
Today, we discuss the importance of good attic insulation to the roof.
How Insulation Works
Heat travels from warmer to colder areas until a balanced temperature is reached. Good insulation is crucial in preventing heat from traveling to other areas. With quality insulation, you can keep your heated rooms warm and comfortable while preventing heat from flowing to other spaces.
Advantages of Good Attic Insulation
- Lowe Risk of Leaks
Your roofing is designed to resist water damage during harsh weather. If your attic is not properly insulated, excess heat can escape through gaps and cracks in your attic. When that heat reaches your roof’s peak and causes excess moisture and pressure, you might end up with ice dams, early shingle deterioration and roof deck rot.
- Better Protection for Shingles
Fluctuating temperatures can cause roof shingles to crack or become brittle. Fortunately, you can prevent this by ensuring your attic is well-insulated as it will help shingles maintain a more balanced temperature.
- Healthy Roof
Like shingles, your roof’s wooden rafters are also vulnerable to cracks due to extreme temperature changes. To prevent expansion and contraction, your attic must be properly insulated.
