A pitched roof is a roof that features one side that is pitched at least 10 degrees. This type of roof is present with many different types of homes, especially older Victorian style buildings. Insulating a pitched roof can be a little more difficult than trying to insulate a flat roof type, but it is certainly just as important. To get an idea of what the cost will be to insulate your roof, we can help you to get a quote.
Cutting Energy Costs with Pitch Roof Insulation
The main reason that people get insulation installed is to help cut down on energy costs. This is because insulation will help to keep the temperature in the home regulated. For example, insulation will keep hot rays from seeping in through the roof during the warmer months. In the colder months, insulation will work to keep the heat inside your home, meaning you aren’t wasting electricity or fuel with heating. By installing the proper insulation, energy costs can be lowered by as much as thirty percent. This will also make your home much more pleasant to live in.
The Types of Insulation Used in Pitch Roofs
A very commonly pitch roof insulation material is a recycled material known as rigid foam insulation. This is an inexpensive type of material that is very effective. There are different subtypes of rigid foam insulation, and a professional insulation company will be able to assess your home and then choose a type based on what will work best in your roof. Other options can include glass wool, rockwool and insulated plasterboard (among others). Sometimes people decide to use a combination of materials in different areas.
The Cost of Installing Pitch Roof Insulation
The cost of getting new pitch roof insulation installed will vary. If you have old insulation that needs to be safely removed, that will cost more than getting insulation installed for the first time. In some cases, insulation may need to be installed from the outside in which will require a lot more work and subsequently cost more. Many people choose to try to install the insulation themselves to cut down on the costs, but problems that may arise during the process can have a reverse affect. Using a professional ensures that the job is performed properly and quickly. Additionally, using professionals really doesn’t have to be expensive when you have them compete for your business.
