The effective insulation of your property is essential for your comfort and safety. At Couvreurs de l'Est in Montreal, we have been installing, inspecting, maintaining and repairing the roofs of residential, commercial and industrial buildings since 1955. In this article, we will present the benefits of properly insulating your roof.

1. Increased roof durability

Among other things, because insulation reduces the accumulation of ice and snow on your roof in winter, it contributes to the longevity of your roof. Considering the costs involved in renovating the latter, the investment is certainly worth it!

2. Weather protection

A properly insulated roof prevents infiltration caused by bad weather. These damage not only the roof structure itself, but also the ceilings and walls inside the dwelling. Damage caused by water or humidity can take different forms:

  • Rotten wood;

  • Water rings;

  • Cracks;

  • Mildew;

  • Unpleasant smell;

  • Curled paint.

3. Improved energy efficiency

Proper insulation means better energy efficiency. More specifically, it helps to preserve heat in winter and coolness in summer. It therefore limits temperature variations in your home, ensures your comfort and is beneficial to the environment.

4. Reduced heating and cooling costs

Did you know that 30 to 50% of heat loss occurs through the roof? Insulate it to reduce your heating costs during the cold season! In the same way, save on ventilation and air conditioning during heat waves!

Inspection Department

Do you wonder if your roof is in good condition? We can identify signs of wear with a simple visual examination. To find out more precisely if the insulation of your roof is adequate, also request a thermographic inspection. With an infrared camera, we check for the presence of humidity, leaks, vermin, etc.

If a problem arises, our experts serving Montreal, the North Shore and the South Shore can take care of it! Whether for a flat or sloping roof or for a roof made of asphalt shingles and gravel, slate tiles, steel panels or having LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), at Couvreurs from the East, we are here for you!
