Does your heating bill look a lot higher than it should? You might find this rise in your utility bill a result of faulty or bad roof insulation. Since heat rises, improperly installed roof insulation could cause all the heat to fly right out of your home before you and your family can enjoy it. However, you can stop all of this heat loss by having a professional roofing technician in Atlanta replace the insulation in your roof with insulation that will keep your house efficient and warm.

Replacing insulation in your roof could become a very large project depending on the age and construction of your home, so make sure to have your home inspected before hiring a Georgia-based roofing pro. For example, if your home has water or termite damage, the entire roof could need replacement instead of simply changing out the insulation.

Once your house received an approval from the inspection, talk to the roofing professional of your choice about what options you have for changing out the roof insulation. Although many people choose to use traditional fiberglass insulation in the roof, other natural options also exist, such as cellulose insulation. You might choose natural cellulose insulation if you or your family have allergies or seem sensitive to the chemicals present in fiberglass roof insulation.

New insulation means a lower utility bill and a happier family. With new, thick roof insulation keeping in heat throughout your home, you and your family will again enjoy a comfy, cozy home throughout the cold Georgia fall and winter season.
