Should I Get My New Roof Before Adding Attic Insulation?

Should I Get My New Roof Before Adding Attic Insulation?

Here’s a question we often get: People ask us, “Should I wait to do your program until after I get my new roof?” Sometimes people ask us this after we’ve had strong storms come through the area. They’ve got hail damage and know they’re going to replace their roof. Should they wait until that’s all done to take care of the insulation, radiant barrier and ventilation in the attic? 

 

No Need To Wait To Be Comfortable

 

You do not have to wait to get started on having a better, healthier and more comfortable attic. The comfort and energy savings that come with the radiant barrier and proper insulation is immediate. There is no reason to put that off!

 

Our Warranty

 

9 times out of 10, a new roof will do nothing that will damage your new insulation and radiant barrier. Sometimes if you’re getting a whole new roof deck or a complete roof demo, there might be some scenarios where you’ll need to be more careful about your insulation and radiant barrier. But remember, we give you a lifetime warranty on our radiant barrier, and we stand behind our insulation services for the life of the home. If you’re worried about future work or damage if you have another service done, there’s not another company in the Metroplex like us as far as standing behind our work and helping you troubleshoot to make sure everything works out perfectly. 

So the short answer is no. Don’t wait. Use our service and get your comfort levels increased and energy bills decreased as soon as you can. 

 

How We Work With Your Roofer

 

But also, we want to help you! We want to work with your roofer and with your HVAC contractor to put together the best plan, the best program for your house. We do a lot of that kind of coordination. Many times if a customer already has a contractor ready to put a new roof on their house, when we go in we like to see if what is being put on the table for them for ventilation is going to work with our system. Often it does work. Sometimes we have to go in and make some corrections. Sometimes we will design a ventilation package that we can use to sit down with the roofer and make the best plan for the house.  We’d love to answer any questions you may have, just give us a call!
