Why Insulate your Roof?

Roofing insulation acts as a barrier between different temperature zones, stopping or slowing the flow of heat and cold. It helps your home remain cooler in summer and warmer in winter, resulting in less power required for temperature control.

Let’s explore some of the benefits of installing roofing insulation in your Brisbane home.

Energy Efficiency

Reduces the need for heating and cooling, leading to lower energy bills.

Temperature Regulation

Helps maintain a consistent indoor temperature, making the home more comfortable year-round.

Environmental Impact

Decreases energy consumption, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the home’s carbon footprint.

Extended Roof Life

Protects the roof from extreme temperatures and moisture, potentially extending its lifespan.

Noise Reduction

Provides soundproofing benefits, reducing noise from outside.

Condensation Control

Helps prevent condensation that can lead to mould and mildew growth.

Increased Property Value

Improves the overall energy rating of the home, potentially increasing its market value.

Cost Savings

Initial investment is often offset by long-term savings on energy bills.

Government Incentives

May qualify for tax credits, rebates, or other incentives aimed at promoting energy efficiency.

Comfort Improvement

Creates a more comfortable living environment by reducing drafts and cold spots.

Fire Protection

Some insulation materials offer added fire resistance, enhancing safety.

Moisture Barrier

Acts as a barrier against moisture infiltration, protecting structural integrity.

Reduced HVAC Wear and Tear

Lessens the load on heating and cooling systems, potentially extending their lifespan and reducing maintenance costs.

Our Roofing Insulation Brisbane Services

Roo Roofing can provide a full range of roof insulation installation services including cellulose fibre insulation, polyester batts insulation, and earthwool insulation. Let’s take a closer look at each of these options below.

Cellulose Fibre Insulation

Cellulose fibre insulation is an eco-friendly option made primarily from recycled paper products, such as newspapers, treated with fire-retardant chemicals. It is highly effective at reducing heat transfer and has excellent soundproofing qualities. Blown into roof cavities, cellulose conforms to irregular spaces and provides a dense, consistent layer of insulation. Its eco-friendly nature and high thermal performance make it a popular choice for those looking to improve energy efficiency while minimising environmental impact.

Polyester Batts Insulation

Polyester batts insulation is made from recycled plastic, such as PET bottles, which are processed into soft, durable fibers. These batts are non-irritant, safe to handle, and hypoallergenic, making them ideal for households with allergy concerns. Polyester batts are easy to install, fitting snugly between roof joists to provide effective thermal and acoustic insulation. Their resilience and resistance to moisture ensure long-term performance without the risk of sagging or settling over time.

Earthwool Insulation

Earthwool insulation is a type of glass wool insulation that uses advanced ECOSE® Technology to bind the fibers without the use of formaldehyde or artificial colors. It is renowned for its high thermal performance and excellent acoustic properties, effectively reducing energy bills and enhancing indoor comfort. Earthwool is also soft to the touch and odorless, making it more pleasant to handle and install. Its sustainable manufacturing process and superior insulation properties make it a preferred choice for environmentally conscious homeowners looking to improve their home’s energy efficiency.
