Proper installation of commercial roofing insulation can greatly affect not just on its expected lifespan, but also its long-term value and energy efficiency. There are several types of insulation available, which differ in terms of material and installation method. Here is a closer look at the most popular options.
This type of insulation is made of a type of plastic known as polystyrene. The material is made using a high-pressure process known as extrusion, creating a very dense, solid barrier. This type of insulation offers excellent resistance against damage and is also known to provide good thermal resistance. Extruded Polystyrene is considered a high-end option.
A more affordable version of extruded polystyrene, expanded polystyrene is made of the same substance as the previous option, but is less dense. Like other affordable roof insulation, expanded polystyrene is designed to provide as much coverage as possible. This gives commercial property owners with a limited budget a viable option.
Made of a layer of foam plastic sandwiched between felt, glass or fiberglass facers, polyisocyanurate insulation is incredibly versatile although it is mostly found in low-slope roof systems. This type of insulation is much more affordable than extruded polystyrene, but it offers better thermal resistance and durability than expanded polystyrene. This balance between cost and efficiency make polyisocyanurate a good all-around option.
