Re-Roofing: The Perfect Time to Add New Insulation
Congratulations! You’ve finally stopped delaying the inevitable and realized what your family, friends, and probably many others already have: you need a new roof. You’ve even gone so far as to call our team from Universal Roofing in to perform a replacement. This no doubt represents a significant financial investment on your part, and as such, one that was no doubt very difficult to make. So of course, what better time would there be for us to also recommend that while you’re replacing your roof, you should consider replacing your insulation as well?
Why Replace Your Roof and Insulation at the Same Time?
You might think that such a suggestion is an attempt to upsell you. However, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, our recommendation to address your insulation issues while having your roof replaced is one meant to help you get the most bang for your repair buck. Consider the following:
- When replacing your roof, we have easy access to your attic space. What better time for us to take a quick look at the insulation to see what condition it’s in?
- If your home is over 10 years old and you have yet to address the insulation, it has likely passed its effective shelf life already.
- Having easy access to your attic through your new yet-to-be-completed roof deck allows us to avoid dragging hoses and insulation products through your home.
- As we’re already there to repair your roof, your overall labor costs will be less if you also have us replace the insulation at the same time.
Today’s insulation products allow for much-improved energy efficiency, and they’re designed to last longer than the standard 10 year limit offered by older insulation. Thus, it may ultimately be the best decision to upgrade now anyway in order to enjoy the increased cost-efficiency a joint insulation/roofing project offers.
