The Role Of Attic Insulation In Winter Roof Protection

The Role Of Attic Insulation In Winter Roof Protection

When your attic is well insulated, it can improve your home’s energy efficiency and provide you with lower utility bills. However, attic insulation also plays a critical role in protecting your roof during cold weather. Watch this video to learn how attic insulation installation can prevent damage to your roof during cold weather.

In the winter, the heated air from the living areas of your home can move up through the attic and warm the underside of the roof. If there is snow on your roof, then this can cause some of it to melt and create ice dams that lead to water damage. Attic insulation can help keep your warm indoor air from heating your roof and causing ice dams to form.
