Keep Your Home Cool & Comfy: Alpha Builders Has the Best Roof Insulation!

Roof Insulation

Roof insulation in Singapore is crucial, especially in countries where the weather changes rapidly. We all understand how the heat can be pretty harsh during summertime and how the occasional short rainfall can aggravate the heat further rather than cool it off. Insulation helps deal with these things and more, especially in Singapore.

If you are particularly looking for options when it comes to insulation types, there are a ton to choose from. While they might differ in material, they all do a great job of protecting our homes from heat or cold by balancing out the temperature, making things easier for homeowners in the process. 

Insulation is an essential part of roofing, and if you are considering a re-working of your roofs, then you should also consider getting roof insulation. While the temperature outside and inside of our homes are out of our control, we can do the next best thing and have something that can regulate the temperature for us. 

How Roof Insulation Works

Insulation works under the premise that heat tends to flow towards cooler areas. This tendency to go to cooler areas attracts heat inside your home when it’s hot outside and cold inside your homes. When it’s cold out, the heat inside your home tends to go to cooler areas; that’s why it also becomes cold inside the house.

Understanding how heat reacts to its environment is also the key to understanding roof insulation. Since we now know that heat tends to go to cooler areas, there must be something that can prevent it from going into our house when it’s hot outside and retain the heat inside when it’s cold outside. That’s where roof insulation comes in.

Creating a barrier that reflects the heat away from our homes when it’s hot and having a wall inside that traps the heat within the structure when it’s cold is essentially the premise that guides insulation.

Reflective Roof Insulation and Bulk Insulation

The first example is called reflective insulation. This type of insulation is installed right below your roof, and it is typically a layer of reflective foil that essentially absorbs the heat and lessens its effect below. Roofing materials tend to absorb heat reasonably quickly; that’s why having a reflective material below is ideal to minimise the heat going in.

The second example is called bulk insulation. This type of insulation uses materials like polyester, wool, and polystyrene panels to prevent heat or trap them, depending on the temperature outside. Bulk insulation is usually placed between the panels on your attic, where it regulates the heat.

While these two types of roof insulation are different from one another, there is the option to have them both installed in your home for maximum heat protection or retention. If you are situated in a particularly hot area in Singapore, you can have both types of insulation installed along with your roofing.
