Polyisocyanurate Roof Insulation
In commercial and industrial roof design, using the right, high-quality insulation can significantly decrease your heating and cooling costs. Using the right insulation can substantially lower energy costs throughout the life cycle of the roof. A leading insulation product that Whitco uses frequently is Polyisocyanurate (polyiso), or ISO roof insulation.
Polyiso’s thermal performance has proven through independent testing to exceed other common roof insulating materials in conserving energy. Polyiso has the highest R-Value per inch of thickness of any building material on the market. An R-Value indicates the insulation’s resistance to heat flow, and these tests demonstrated that less polyiso is needed to maintain the same R-Value. Therefore, the more heat flow resistance your insulation provides, the lower your heating and cooling costs.
Features and Benefits of Polyiso Insulation:
- Polyiso has the highest R-Value of any roof insulation
- Superior compressive strength
- Energy efficient and cost effective
- Compatible with most roof systems
Whitco Roofing works with each client to determine the best energy efficient insulation for their project. Here’s an overview of the insulation options Whitco provides:
Polyisocyanurate (polyiso) – Due to its superior R-Value and high energy efficiency, polyiso foam is the industry’s premier roofing insulation.
Tapered Polyiso – This product is an energy efficient insulation designed to minimize heating and cooling costs, while maximizing rooftop drainage for most commercial roofs. Tapered polyiso minimizes the negative effects of ponding water and reduces water infiltration. Applying tapered polyiso will help increase the life of a roofing system.
