Advantages to Using Bubble Foil Metal Roof Insulation
This entry was posted on February 23, 2012.
Using reflective insulation as your metal roof insulation has several advantages. Traditional insulation is generally applied directly to the roof deck. Issues regarding condensation occur when the insulation is compressed and vapor tight seams are present. Condensation caused by higher humidity decreases the thermal performance. Corrosion and other related problems exist until the insulation has to be removed.
Reflective insulation applied with a thermal break to stop the metal to metal conduction inhibits condensation problems by keeping the exposed insulation surfaces above the moisture causing dew point. Other benefits to working with foil insulation are the products thermal performance, it is mildew resistant, easy to install, also safe and environmentally friendly.
