Why your roof insulation is important this summer
While we have developed the website it has become evident that insulating your roof is more important than you might think. You can read the complete article when you visit the website here.
Roof insulation in itself means that you are placing a buffer between the ceiling of your home and the rooms and areas in your house. During the summer months it becomes very hot as we all know and in Cape Town it can become especially hot on certain days.
Keep this in mind when you think of the heat that builds up between the top (the tiles) on your roof and the first buffer being the ceiling. The sun heats the tiles and this heat is transferred to the area between the roof and the ceiling. It will be hotter here than outside and the easiest way for this heat to escape is downwards through your ceiling.
To combat this you need protection in your ceiling preventing the heat from entering your home, or it will be up to you to cool the inside of your house down. Aerolite has proven over the years that it is an effective solution for the insulation of your ceiling. The pink coloured material is well known and lasts for a very long time.
Once you have it installed you will physically feel the difference, something to look forward to.
