OWENS CORNING TOP OF THE HOUSE CERTIFIED

A Complete Roofing System

A high-performance roof takes more than just shingles. The performance of any roof depends on an entire system of products working and performing together, including ventilation and insulation. Even the highest-quality roof shingles cannot work alone to protect a home. That’s why it’s also important to consider attic insulation and proper ventilation when considering a roof replacement.

Metro City Roofing is an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor that has been specially trained on how roofing ventilation and attic insulation work together to improve your Colorado home’s energy efficiency and comfort. We can help with your residential insulation needs across the Colorado Front Range from Fort Collins to Colorado Springs. We provide insulation installation for new home construction and home improvement (remodels and retrofits).

GOING GREEN

Energy-Efficient

Energy used in homes and buildings is the number-one source of greenhouse gas emissions – and in an under-insulated home, most of a home’s heat escapes through the attic and crawl space.

Adding attic insulation and crawl space insulation is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to improve energy efficiency and energy savings on your utility bills. Plus, it helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Adding attic insulation and sealing air leaks can reduce heating and cooling energy bills by up to 20%, as determined by energy audits. Adding Owens Corning AttiCat Expanding Blown-in PINK FIBERGLAS Insulation can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than half a ton each year.

PREVENTION IS THE FIRST STEP IN HOME MAINTENANCE

Moisture Prevention

Proper ventilation and attic insulation are essential for preventing trapped heat and moisture in the attic, severely impacting a roof’s overall performance.

Attic moisture can cause:

  • Wet wood – sagging roof deck
  • Potential insect infestation
  • Mold, spores, fungi, and mildew
  • Metal rust (such as nail heads)
  • Interior damage
  • Roof warping
  • Cracked shingles

Attic heat can cause:

  • Ice dams that prevent water runoff on your roof
  • Premature falling of roofing materials

The combination of insulation and a ventilation system helps keep excessive household moisture and heat out, resulting in proper conditions and better-maintained temperatures in the attic and on the roof deck throughout the year.

A Quality Roof Depends on a Properly Insulated Attic

Prevention of Ice Dams

Ice dams form when indoor heating rises through the ceiling into the attic and warms the roof surface. The snow on the heated part of the roof melts and flows down until it meets the part of the roof that is below 32 degrees. At that point, the water freezes into an ice dam. Water backs up behind the dam and, as it sits on the roof, works its way under the roof covering and flows into the attic. From there, it can seep through insulation, ceilings, walls, and other areas where it can cause damage.

Keeping a consistent attic temperature can help prevent ice dams. Insulation and ventilation are critical components of maintaining the attic’s proper conditions and on the roof deck.

Metro City Roofing can help with additional home insulation to reduce heating and cooling costs and increase homeowners’ comfort.

A DETAILED INSPECTION IS CRITICAL

Roofs Can Hide Many Secrets

Inspection of the roof’s underside is an essential step in the professional installation of a new roof. A roofing professional can spot any areas of concern that could jeopardize the roofing system’s warranty by inspecting the attic.

A thorough attic inspection will check for:

  • Moisture, staining, and dry rot
  • Ventilation
    • Validating any existing attic insulation does not block the intake vents
    • Making sure there are baffles currently in place
    • Counting for the correct amount of ventilation, with both intake and exhaust vents
  • Improper insulation
    • If there is no insulation, or if the joists are visible, the attic is under-insulated

If the joists are not visible, an insulation ruler can determine how much insulation is in the attic. Most homes need a minimum of 17” insulation to meet the governmental recommendations for energy efficiency.

UNDERSTANDING THE IMPORTANCE OF INSULATION

Serving Numerous Benefits for Your Home

Heat always moves toward cold, so heat tries to escape a home in the winter; and tries to enter a home in the summer. Fiberglass insulation works by trapping air within tiny pockets to resist heat transfer, so it doesn’t move into or out of the house.

Insulation provides other significant benefits, including controlling moisture and air infiltration, assuring proper ventilation, and maximizing the home’s HVAC system’s efficiency.

Insulation can also:

  • Increase comfort
  • Reduce the homeowner’s heating and cooling costs
  • Conserve natural resources by helping the homeowner use less energy
  • Increase the home’s resale value

Reducing air infiltration takes the strain off heating and cooling units to avoid energy loss by running longer than necessary. The result can be an annual energy-cost savings of up to 20%. Savings vary depending on the original amount of insulation in the home, climate, house size, air leaks, and each customer’s personal energy use and living habits.

Speak with your insurance company to determine whether you qualify for any type of insurance rebate.

Proper insulation and ventilation are essential in both warm and cold climates – and in all seasons – to prevent indoor energy from leaking out of the home. Reducing air infiltration can dramatically improve a home’s thermal performance because most air infiltration occurs through the ceiling and floor. Of course, many homeowners also insulate their homes with wall insulation behind the drywall.

In hot weather, proper insulation prevents the attic from spilling unwanted heat down through the attic floor into the living area. In cold weather, proper insulation helps prevent moisture from condensing on the rafters or roof deck and dripping into the insulation.

According to the EPA, showers, cooking, washing, and even breathing can put a surprising amount of moisture into the home. Vapor retarders help control the amount of moisture passing through insulation and collecting inside exterior walls, ceiling, and floors. Manufacturers such as Owens Corning offer products with pre-applied vapor retarders, such as kraft-faced insulation. The kraft paper acts as a vapor retarder, and it’s already adhered.

The ability of insulation to resist the transfer of heat is measured by “R-value.” The higher an insulation’s R-value, the better its ability to resist the flow of heat. Tiny air pockets trapped in the insulation resist the passage of heat – heat loss of winter and heat gain in summer.

R-values are not directly related to the insulation product’s thickness but are related to the number of fibers per square inch or the insulation’s density—the thicker or denser the insulation, the more air pockets and the higher the R-value. As an example, a 3 ½” thick R-15 insulation has more fibers per square inch than 3 ½” thick R-11, making it denser and earning a higher R-value for the same thickness.

How much attic insulation is needed? While the amount required varies based on the country’s region, in most cases, the DOE recommends attics are insulated to R-49. The R-value represents thermal resistance to heat flow, so the higher the R-value, the greater the insulation effectiveness.

It’s also important to check your local building codes to ensure your new insulation project will meet current code requirements.

Fiberglass insulation products are clearly labeled by R-value. Those values are based on tests made by accredited laboratories using the current American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) methods. Further, fiberglass batt and loosefill types of insulation are factory-engineered to retain their thermal performance for the product’s lifetime. Properly installed, they will not significantly sag or settle, thereby assuring that the installed R-value is maintained. Fiberglass batts and properly installed loosefill insulations are not considerably affected by convection (the upward movement of warm air).

Fiberglass is manufactured primarily from sand, an inherently non-combustible material. Therefore, glass fibers will not burn and require no fire-retardant chemicals, like are required with another type of insulation known as cellulose insulation.

Fiberglass insulation is safe to use when the simple directions printed on the package are followed. In terms of health and safety testing, fiberglass insulation is one of the most tested building materials. Studies conducted over the past 50 years involving 40,000 workers have not established any causal relationship between exposure to glass fibers and cancer or any other disease in plant workers or installers.

According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, fiberglass and foam insulation materials will last a lifetime, provided they are not punctured, cut, or burned and kept dry and away from UV rays. This is true regardless of whether the installation was loosefill, housewrap, or batts/rolls.

Certain conditions can significantly affect the quality and effectiveness of your home’s insulation. One of the most common causes of insulation degradation is water damage. Leaks in roofs or the foundation can cause the insulation to gradually degrade over time as the water breaks down the material. Moisture from leaks can also cause mold growth, which makes insulation less effective and even harmful. Over time, loosefill insulation may settle, resulting in air leaks. Cellulose or fiberglass batt insulation also tends to fall from ceilings or crawl spaces just 15 to 20 years after installation. Regular dirt and dust can also impact the effectiveness of your home’s insulation.

Most experts, including those at the U.S. Department of Energy, recommend you have your insulation inspected at least once a year. If your roof has had to be repaired or replaced because of leaks, you should make sure to have an attic insulation inspection. Mildew and mold can affect insulation materials and indicate that excessive moisture has been or is still in the area, severely affecting the insulation’s R-value.
