Save On Your Energy Bill With Roofing Insulation

Ever wonder where all the heat goes in your home when you’ve got the heater on in winter? Or how the heat gets into your home in the first place on those hot summer days? Your ceiling is the biggest culprit, accounting for 25 to 35 per cent of heat gain and loss.

Installing quality roofing insulation could save you 20 to 30 per cent on your heating and cooling costs. With these kinds of energy savings, insulation is a no-brainer.

Upside Down has expert roofers who can install the right insulation for your home and needs. Our team specialises in reflective insulation which will reduce the radiated heat flow in your home so you can p[ut your money to better use elsewhere.

For your local roof insulation experts, you need Upside Down.

Quality Roof Insulation Installer

Does learning the difference between bulk and reflective insulation, R values and thermal resistance all sound a bit too much to add to your already hectic schedule? Don’t stress it – Upside Down has expert roof insulation installers who can take the difficulty out of this process.

Our team will leave you with a well-insulated home that’s built for thermal performance all year round. We’ll assess your house and determine the best reflective insulation types for your existing home:

  • Reflective wrap – this is your typical roof sarking, reflective wrap is a foil that is laminated to paper and reinforced with glass fibre or coated in a non-metallic reflective coating. It is available as a single or double-sided foil.
  • Multi-cell reflective foil insulation – this insulation combines two to four layers of laminated foil that can be installed over ceiling joists and between/across wall studs. The effectiveness of this insulation depends on the number of layers and air space.
  • Expandable concertina-style foil – a double-sided, reflective foil that can have the width adjusted to suit varying sized gaps. This insulation is largely used between wall studs and timber floors.

An experienced roof insulation installer will know which type will best suit your home and just the right R value to insulate your home effectively. Upside Down has fully qualified and highly experienced roofers available 24/7 for all your insulation needs.

Roof Insulation FAQ

Do you have any questions about roof insulation? We can provide all the answers here.

First of all, it’s important to acknowledge there is a difference between the roof and the ceiling. Ceiling insulation is typically located on the flat section, while the roof is the angled section consisting of metal sheets or tiles. Insulation can be installed along both, and often it is best to use insulation on both. Sarking is traditionally placed under the roof, however, as it provides waterproofing, while insulation is located in between the wooden beams running across your ceiling space. Sarking is a thin pliable sheet with an aluminium foil lining that sits underneath the tiles of a roof.

Yes, roof insulation does really make a difference. Between 25-40% of your home’s warmed or chilled air is lost through the roof. Insulation retains much of that while also keeping the external elements out of the home. A professional insulation by a roofing expert from Upside Down can save up to 50% on your air conditioning bills. That means your roof insulation cost will always be recouped quickly.

The R value insulation you need depends on your climate. Residential insulation is offered with a range of R values between 1.5 and 7, with 7 the most effective. However, your home does not necessarily require the most extreme value. The Building Code of Australia has set minimum R values across Australia dependent on the climate. Generally, this R value is 4.1 for roof insulators but can change with other factors. For example, colder climates benefit from higher R values, while warmer climates are suited to lower R values as some heat loss is beneficial in summer.
