It has an array of different benefits that make it a popular choice for insulation including being an excellent thermal insulator which effectively reduces the transfer of heat between the interior and exterior of the building. It also has fire resistance properties alongside sound absorption and mould resistance making it a great all-round insulation material for properties. Not to mention it is highly durable, easy to install and cost effective.
Mineral Wool Insulation
Mineral wool insulation is a type of thermal insulation material that is made from synthetic minerals and rock materials. It is also known as rock wool and is used in various different roofing projects to provide thermal and acoustic insulation. Mineral wool is a great thermal insulator being able to reduce heat transfer in your home. It is also fire-resistant meaning it can withstand high temperatures without igniting. It is also moisture resistant meaning it does not absorb water preventing the growth of mold and mildew. Furthermore, it is resistant to pests and insects.
Spray foam is a great choice for people looking to repair their current roofing insulation. It is applied as a liquid and expands into foam to create an airtight barrier. It is used in residential and commercial properties to provide thermal insulation, air sealing and moisture control. Spray foam can provide great thermal insulation by filling gaps in the voids of the building and rood preventing heat transfer. It also acts as an effective barrier against sealing gaps making your property more energy efficient filling cracks that can allow air into the property. It also has a long lifespan and can be sprayed on different surfaces including walls, roofs, ceilings and floors.
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is a lightweight and versatile insulation material. It is a type of foam plastic that is made from expanded polystyrene beads. It comes in different forms including boards, sheets and blocks. It is known to be an effective thermal insulator helping your property to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. It is lightweight and easy to handle making it fairly simple to install. Not only is it cost-effective but also durable making it a worthwhile investment.
PIR (Polyisocyanurate) Insulation
PIR insulation is a thermal insulation material that has high thermal abilities and excellent insulation properties. It is made out of a rigid foam board that includes a polyisocyanurate core. This allows the insulation to have the best thermal insulation per inch providing great thermal properties whilst minimizing the thickness of the insulation layer.

It is also fire and moisture-resistant alongside being highly energy efficient.

Frequently Asked Roofing Insulation Questions
What is the best insulation for a roof?
The best type of insulation for your roof depends on the particular property, your budget and your personal requirements. Some of the best types of roofing insulation materials include structural insulated panels, fibreglass wool and mineral wool rolls. If you are looking to repair your roof, spray foam could be a good option to keep it insulated.
Should you insulate the underside of your roof?
There are two different ways you can install insulation on your roof. The typical advice that is often given when people ask the question of whether they should insulate the underside of their roof is that they can either choose to insulate their roof between and above the rafters (warm roof) or insulate their roof between and under the rafters (cold roof).
Does roof insulation stop condensation?
Roof insulation is the best way to stop condensation from building up within the inside of your roof. If the insulation is installed correctly and there is enough ventilation, condensation will not occur.
