Insulation Installation

Fast, Efficient Roofing Insulation Install & Removal In Perth WA

Insulation Installation

Insulation is your blanket in the Winter, your heat shield in the Summer. It makes sense that your home has high performance roof insulation installation.

When looking at insulation installation, there are two major things to consider;

1. The thickness of the material (measured using R values)

2. The type of insulation material

Insulation Installation R Value

The R value of insulation determines how well insulation works. The Building Code of Australia (BCA) specifies R4 for homes in Perth. This can differ depending on the construction and colour of the roof. At Perth Insulation, we recommend using R5 in conjunction with whirlybirds. Whilst more expensive, the R5 is up to 25% more effective year round when compared to the R4 rated batt.
 
We recommend going no higher than the R6 rated batt. Whilst you can get an R7, the cost outweighs the return on investment. With only 40% of heat transfer going through your roof, the next step would be wall insulation.

Types on Insulation

Insulation installation has changed over the years. These have changed from traditional wool insulation through to the modern fibreglass batts. We offer a range of different types of insulation products.

Fibreglass Batts

Fibreglass is one of the most common insulation installation materials used today. Made from 80% recycled glass, the thin glass fibres trap air and restrict heat flow through the batt. We recommend using the Bradford Gold range. These fibreglass batts are Australian made, 70-year warranty and Asthma Foundation approval. The batts range from R2 all the way through to the R7 range.

Polyester Batts

Insulation installation is often completed with polyester insulation. Polyester batts are perfect for allergen sufferers. As they are volatile organic compound (VOC) free, they are low allergen. The polyester offers a great alternative to fibreglass. The only downside is the polyester batts only go up to R4.
