Proper attic insulation can help maintain the structural integrity of your roof while enhancing indoor comfort. It offers several benefits to your home; that’s why it should always be part of your roof maintenance.
Prevents Heat Buildup
The attic acts as a barrier between your living spaces and the outdoors. However, it must be properly insulated so that it can prevent heat from building up in the space and traveling down to your living spaces. Attic insulation also works in tandem with roof ventilation, which allows hot indoor air to escape and fresh outdoor air to enter the space. This keeps the humidity in the attic at a normal level and helps maintain a consistent temperature.
Stops Ice Dams From Developing
Ice dams can be harmful to the roof because their weight adds to the load that the roof structure needs to carry. They also make the roof more prone to leaks. With proper attic insulation, you can prevent ice dams from forming on your roof. When snow and ice build up on your roof surface, the excessive heat in a poorly insulated attic could cause them to melt and refreeze along the gutters and eaves.
Extends Roofing Lifespan
Attic insulation ensures a stable temperature underneath your roof, which means your shingles can avoid being exposed to excessive heat. A hot attic can cause the roof’s surface temperature to rise, causing shingles to deteriorate more quickly. By keeping your attic properly insulated, you can prolong the lifespan of your shingles.
