Criteria to Consider When Choosing Roof Insulation

The purchase of insulation for your roof will require a little bit of a financial investment. As is the case with any other “home improvement” investment you might decide to make, you’ll want to make the right decision. Unless you are an insulation expert, you’ll certainly want to hire a reputable Denver insulation company like Red Rocks Insulation to take the lead.

When offering our insulation services in Denver CO, we like to educate our customers. As part of that education process, we’ll often discuss the criteria that warrant consideration when selecting the right insulation. Here are the main criteria we feel you should consider during the decision-making process:

Technician Applying Roof Insulation

Efficiency level

When choosing insulation, you’ll note that each type of insulation has an R-Value rating, which measures the insulation’s ability to insulate for home temperature control. The higher the better.

Fire resistance

If you are going to insulate your roof, you’ll want to select an insulation material that has the ability to serve as a fire retardant, preventing the spread of fire.

Noise reduction

Some insulations are better than others at insulating the home from outside noise. This is also true of wall insulation.

Benefits of Insulating Your Roof

Benefits of Insulating Your Roof

Since you will be making a financial investment when you purchase insulation for your roof, you have a right to expect certain benefits from doing so. With that in mind, here are the three (3) primary benefits you can get from insulating your roof:

  • Helps prevent the accumulation of moisture in the roof, moisture that can cause roof/wall damage
  • Helps to lower your energy bill by increasing energy efficiently
  • Increases your quality of life by maintaining comfortable temperatures in the home

Types of Ceiling Insulation

You will need to make a decision about the type of insulation you want. To do that, you’ll want to consider your overall objectives and your budget. Here are some of the types of insulation we can offer in the Denver metro area:


made with cellulose (fiberglass, recycled paper, and cardboard)

The Process of Insulating Your Roof

The Process of Insulating Your Roof

It’s important that you understand the insulation process. While offering our insulation services in Denver CO, we like to start with a consultation. This allows us to determine your objectives and preferences. From this information, we can make a reasonable recommendation regarding the best insulation to meet your needs.

The next step in the home insulation in Denver process is the scheduling of an installation date, followed by the actual installation of your new insulation. Once the job is done, we’ll leave the work area or areas looking like new.

Does Insulation of Your Roof Save Money?

As you contemplate the cost of insulating your roof, it might make it an easier “pill to swallow” if you understand that you will likely recoup those costs over time through lower energy bills. It works like this.

Insulation that has a strong R-Value rating will help keep heat from radiating throughout your home. That takes the pressure off your HVAC system to run at full capacity. That translates to cost savings on the energy bill. Note: The methodology is also applicable during the winter with the heating system.

Frequently Asked Questions

If fire resistance is one of my top concerns, what type of insulation would be my best option?

We would probably recommend spray foam insulation. Polyurethane chemicals are naturally fire retardant, which makes them very effective at preventing the spread of fire. As a sidebar, most cellulose insulation needs to be treated with fire-retardant chemicals prior to the insulation process.

How long does it take to insulate a roof?

The time it would take for a roof insulation installation would depend on several factors such as the size of the roof, the shape of the roof, and the type of insulation to be installed. In most cases, the process takes less than a day.

What exactly is the R-Value rating?

R-Value is a measurement of an insulation’s ability to deflect thermal energy (heat). The higher the rating number, the better the insulation will be in terms of temperature control within the home.

Which type of insulation is most affordable?

If budget is your top concern, you would probably want to go with the cellulose blown-in insulation option. The spray form option is usually the most expensive. If you would like a quote, we would be happy to schedule a home consultation.
