The 3 Key Roles of Insulation in a Commercial Roof

Roofing insulation can often be a simple solution that plays a vital role in your roofing system and for maintaining the temperature inside your building. If you are a commercial building owner you need to understand how vital the role of roofing insulation can be. Having an affordable roofing system can be crucial to managing the temperature and keeping your commercial roof at its best. Here are some of the top roles for insulation in a commercial roof!

Heat Transfer

Your roofing insulation can prevent heat transfers through your roof. As temperatures on your commercial roof can often be blistering you can reduce the amount of radiation and heat that makes its way into your building.

Extra Strength

Insulation on your commercial roof adds extra strength to the walking area on your roof. The insulation could be extremely important for installing items like your rooftop air conditioner, HVAC system or green roofing components. Choosing an installation that has great compressive strength will make sure that you have walkways on your roof which can improve usable space.

Assistance With Drainage

As well as assistance with improving the temperature inside your home, insulation boards can direct water away from the walls and the curves of your home and make sure that it flows safely towards the gutters. A roof will need a minimum of a quarter inch drop to drain water adequately and a higher slope may be needed in specific areas to make sure that the insulation can direct water away from your roof as needed.
