Should I Use Spray Foam Roof Insulation?

Yes, as choosing foam insulation can improve the structural stability of your home, prevent drafts and moisture ingress, and ultimately save you money on energy bills. These are just some of the benefits of spray foam roof insulation.

Which foam insulation should I use for roof insulation?

We recommend Icynene® closed-cell spray foam. Closed cell spray foam has a rigid structure, best suited for foam roof insulation. The reason we use Icynene® for foam roofing is because it has unparalleled efficiency results. Using spray foam for roofing is an investment, and when you are putting money into your property it stands to reason – and pays off – ensuring that the best solution is used.

Why should I use spray foam roof insulation? The benefits of using Icynene® for foam roof insulation

Unlike traditional roof insulation materials, such as fibreglass and insulation board, foam roof insulation has unchallenged insulating abilities such as:

  • Improves the air quality
  • Increases the structural integrity of the roof.
    Having foam roofing insulation can increase the value of your home as a result of this feature, benefitting you now and when you sell!
  • Greater energy efficiency
  • Protect the items in your home
    Due to the high insulating ability, cold air won’t permeate your loft/attic space, so there’s no risk of frozen pipes or water tanks.
  • It’s an air barrier
    Closed cell foam insulation provides a complete air barrier, as it expands to 100x its size once sprayed, finding every possible gap.
  • Save money on heating and cooling costs – you can save up to 50%!
  • It won’t be used as a nesting place for vermin
    There’s nothing worse than coming across vermin in your loft, but if Icynene® spray foam roof insulation is installed, it’s a worry of the past! As this foam roofing is completely solid, it’s hard for rats or mice to bury through it. Also, it doesn’t provide a source of bedding or food.

Spray foam roof insulation will protect your home from damp or seasonal impact, and ensure your loft space remains dry, clean and safe for the storing of possessions, including the all-important Christmas decorations!
