Roof insulation roofing insulated board panels | Wedge India

Roof insulation is material or combination of insulation materials to ensure high r 30 value to protect heat loss, prevent from heating or cooling, and provide best thermal comfort inside the home, warehouse, factories, hospitals, shelters, or any building. 

Get best Roof Insulation Materials for thermal comfort roofing. High R Value Insulated panels, Board, Sheets, for thermal heating and cooling protection. Offering low price replacement material xps foam spray rock wool, insulation roll, batt insulation, aerogel, perlite wedge india.

The higher the R-value of a material, the better insulator it is. Example: R-30 material is 3 times better insulator than R-10 material. That’s why it’s recommended to use superb insulation material for attics (minimal recommended R-value is R-30), ductwork (R-42). Walls, for example, are not the best insulator; they typically should have an R-value greater than R-11.

Benefits of Roof Insulation

Insulating roof is most important way to keep your home with thermal comfort, warm during the winter and cool during hot weather. Insulation prevents excess heat from entering your home and helps keep it at comfortable temperature during the summer. The biggest advantage of installing roof insulation on your home is the amount of money and energy you’ll save. According to the various types of Energy Audits and Research reports a good insulated old building or new construction home should be able to save between 30-40% of energy consumption while also reducing your monthly heating bill and the amount of CO2 emissions. Without any insulation, moisture from rain or melting snow can lead to permanent damage and mold growth. While some installations can be done yourself, some may require a professional insulation contractor. Here are some key points to consider before tackling the job.

Reducing energy costs is one of the top reasons for reassessing the insulation in buildings. Whether building a new home, or renovating your current one, the selection of your insulation system warrants some serious attention. Adding insulation can offer you a lifetime of energy savings while improving the energy efficiency and comfort to your home. It provides several advantages.

  1. It provides high thermal performance

  2. Gives good mechanical strength

  3. It is resistant to solar radiation

  4. Act as a barrier for air, wind, and moisture

  5. Prevent vapor transmission by applying exterior and interior insulation

  6. Lessens your carbon footprint

  7. Prevents the growth of molds

SIPs share the same structural properties as an I-beam or I-column. The rigid insulation core of the SIP acts as a web, while the sheathing fulfills the function of the flanges. SIPs combine several components of conventional building, such as studs and joists, insulation, vapor barrier and air barrier. They can be used for many different applications, such as exterior wall, roof, floor and foundation systems.

Before deciding whether to perform the installation yourself or hire an insulation contractor, remember to carefully examine the condition of your roof. If the space is easily accessible and doesn’t show any signs of moisture, it may be possible to do the job yourself. But if there are any kind of leaks or mold, it’s probably best to hire a professional. If you decide to do it yourself, make sure the space is free of any obstructions and that all gaps and air leaks are sealed off. If there’s any space for heat to escape or cold air to come in, your insulation will no longer be effective. Best Roof Insulation Materials are available at Wedge India including its own manufactured and fabricated high R30 value products:

Spray Foam Roof Insulation

The most common and effective ways to insulate your roof is with polyurethane spray foam. This spray-applied plastic is known to be highly effective for sealing any cracks as well as resisting wind and heat. The foam is applied to the underside of your roof deck and directly onto the slates and tiles.

R-value of Spray Foam Roof Insulation
Open-cell foam - R-3.8-3.6 per inch

Closed-cell foam - R-4.9-7 per inch

Rigid Roof Insulation Boards

Rigid Foam Boards are made from dense sheets of closed-cell foam, which include polyurethane, polystyrene, or polyiso. Rigid insulation boards can be used virtually anywhere in the home, including roofs, basements, living spaces, and attic spaces. The three main types of rigid foam insulation boards include polyisocyanurate or polyiso, extruded polystyrene (XPS), and expanded polystyrene (EPS).

R-value:
Polyiso - R-6.5-6.8 per inch

XPS - R-5 per inch

EPS - R-3.6 per inch

Mineral Wool Roof Batt Insulation

Mineral wool insulation batts are typically made of fiberglass and are one of the least expensive insulation materials. Available in many different sizes and easy to transport, batt insulation is also DIY-friendly.

R-value
Batt insulation - R-2.2-4.5 per inch

Loose-Fill or Blown-In Roof Insulation

Loose-Fill or Blown-In Roof Insulation are either fiberglass or cellulose, this type of insulation is often blown into hard-to-reach places like a roof or unfinished attic through a long flexible tube. While both options are made from loose fibers of recycled waste materials, cellulose has a higher R-value.

R-value
Fiberglass - R-2.5-3.5

Cellulose - R-3.2-3.7

Structural Insulated Roof Panels

Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high-performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. SIP is a sandwich structured composite, consisting of an insulating layer of rigid core sandwiched between two layers of structural board, used as a building material. The board can be sheet metal, plywood, cement, magnesium oxide board (MgO) or oriented strand board (OSB), and the core can either be expanded polystyrene foam (EPS), extruded polystyrene foam (XPS), polyisocyanurate foam, polyurethane foam, or be composite honeycomb (HSC).

Stone Wool Roof Insulation Boards

Stone Wool – a type of mineral wool insulation produced from basalt stone fibers. It is one of the most common solutions for exposed mechanically fastened roofs, especially where very high fire resistance is required. Due to its minimal organic properties, Rockwool insulation is non-combustible and does not produce toxic smoke. Additionally, Rockwool is made from natural Basalt rock and Chalk, and can withstand temperatures of above 1000 degrees. Most commonly used as a firestop wall but can also be used as roof insulation.

Benefits of Stone Wool Insulation:

  1. Sound proofing capabilities

  2. Great fire ratings

  3. Fire resistant

  4. Moisture resistant

  5. Acoustic performance is high

Perlite Roof Insulation Boards

Perlite Roof Insulation Boards made of inorganic, expanded siliceous volcanic glass, perlite combined with organic fibers and binders. The top surface of the insulation board features an asphalt coating or a proprietary coating formulated to limit adhesive.

Advantages of Perlite Roof Insulation Boards:

  1. Fire-resistant

  2. Good strength

  3. Stable

  4. High Insulation

  5. Water Repellent Water Proofing
