Our estimators and crews see some interesting roofing strategies while in the field. We are going to share photos of some of the crazy ideas we see.

In this photo, we found 10 layers of insulation on this roof while completing a roof repair. In another section, we found 14 layers of insulation!

For the record, additional insulation does not mean double or in this case, 14x the insulation benefit. It can, in fact, lead to negative consequences such as, your home is not able to breath. It can also trap moisture in the layers of insulation and be a breeding ground for mold.

There is typically one layer of this type of insulation installed under a membrane roof. We were happy to fix the insulation issue and install the manafucturer recommended amount.
