Insulating a new roof

Insulation – To answer your question it is important to understand that not all insulation products are equal in terms of, price, performance, availability, and suitability for all application areas.

Yes, I too used to think insulation was simple to understand.

Insulation comes in all sorts of mediums and materials. Some are cheap or free and some are expensive and only work in certain situations.

Now let’s get to the specific question.
