Types of Rigid Roof Insulation

One of the major functions a roof has is insulating your home. A roof with proper insulation will have numerous benefits such as better retention of desired temperatures. Good insulation in the roof can also help reduce the volume of external sounds. Most beneficially, insulation contributes to lower energy costs, which makes having it installed well worth the investment.

If you’re looking to have your insulation or other parts of your roof redone or replaced, an Austin roofing contractor at AAA Mustang Roofing can help you. Contact us at 512-650-9866 to learn more about how we can serve you.

Types of Insulation

Rigid roof insulation is different from fiber insulation. Rigid insulation is built into the roofing, underneath the shingles, and is the second line of defense on a typical roof. Rigid insulation comes in a wide variety of materials, so the type of rigid insulation you should get depends on your home and your specific needs. Some common rigid insulation materials include:

  • Perlite
  • Wood Fiber
  • Gypsum Board
  • Cellular Glass

These materials are all processed using vastly differing methods and carry their own advantages and disadvantages. A roofing professional will be able to explain them to you in great detail and help you decide which is right for your home or business.

I first became acquainted with Zane Nixon, owner of AAA Mustang Roofing, when our metal roof was severely damaged in a hailstorm. Our house is large and has over 30 separate roof surfaces, with an equivalent number of edges and valleys. Zane and his crew completed the work in less than two weeks, and it is flawless. They even repaired several areas that suffered structural damages.

Just recently a flash flood on the day following hurricane Hermine caused significant damage to the first story of the house. I called Zane and he was here within 30 minutes and stayed until midnight. Using squeegees, towels and a shop vacuum, we managed to save the rugs and furniture. However, the walls required substantial repairs. Zane worked closely with our insurance adjuster, and the wall repair work under his guidance as contractor is every bit as professional as his previous work.

I recommend AAA Mustang without reservation for any type of construction or remodeling job.
