Roof insulation is traditionally made up of either fiberglass or foam boards. These styles of insulation can result in many issues for the owner and lead to energy loss. Here are some typical examples of these issues
Installation time can be excessive and often involve a large crew, lots of preparation is required and securing the insulation can be awkward.
Traditional insulation will often move with time and sag, become dislodged and break the thermal efficiency of the product.
Awkward angles, shapes and design features often make it hard to truly insulate the roof area efficiently.
Human error can take place and a lot of wastage of the product can occur.
Icynene benefits for roof insulation:
- Icynene can be installed far quicker than traditional methods so down time is reduced, access hire costs reduced and man labour hours saved when using Icynene.
- Icynene will not loose its shape over time, this means no sagging or creating potential air leakage areas within the building.
- As Icynene expands up to 100 times its original volume it will fill all gaps, crevices and unseen areas that traditional insulation cannot cover.
