Roofing and Insulation ~ When To Add Insulation To Your Home

During a reroofing job, you have a unique opportunity to add insulating material.  Because most of your heat loss occurs through the roof, adding this insulation will save you money on your energy bills.

The required minimum R-value of roof insulation varies according to the climate zone within which the building is located and whether a new building is being constructed or an existing building is being reroofed.  Single-family homes are currently exempt from this requirement.  Nevertheless, it is nearly always cost-effective to add insulation when reroofing your home.
