Most homeowners are aware of the benefits of insulating their houses. Insulation prevents heat and cool air from leaving your house, making it easier for you to control your indoor temperature. A well-insulated home provides year-round comfort and lowers your heating and cooling expenses.
When it comes to insulation, one commonly asked question is, “Is my outdoor space worth insulating?” Some people think they can skip the patio insulation since they’re not trying to trap heated or cooled air in their patio as they would inside their home.
However, insulation doesn’t just trap hot air; it also keeps heat away from your space. Insulated patio roofing makes your outdoor space a bit cooler and more comfortable.
If you’re wondering if the installation cost of insulated patio roofing is worth it, here are four benefits that maximise your ROI.
1. Cooler and More Comfortable Space
Depending on the material used, your patio roof absorbs heat from the sun. It makes the patio hotter and impossible to lounge in, especially during summer. Insulation prevents the roof from collecting all that heat, making your patio a bit cooler.
And in a city as sunny as Brisbane, you want your patio as comfortable as possible so you can enjoy your outdoor space.
2. Noise Reduction
Insulated roof panels not only help moderate temperature, but they also reduce noise. Insulation materials have porous fibres to minimise heat conductivity. Because of its porous nature, insulation is an excellent absorber of sound. When sound waves hit the roof, they don’t penetrate inside because the insulation already absorbs them.
Depending on the type of patio you choose, if you have noisy neighbours or live on a busy street, insulated roof panels can contribute to you achieving some peace and quiet. The sound absorption also works inside the house. It means you don’t have to worry about keeping the noise down when you host gatherings.
3. Hidden Electrical Lines
Some insulated patio roof panels are designed to hide electrical lines from view. These allow the contractor to easily run and extend lines safely to a ceiling fan, lights or switches. Hiding the electrical lines in your patio makes it more neat-looking.
Plus, extreme heat can damage sensitive electrical wiring. Insulation protects your wires from getting overheated, preventing damage and prolonging their use.
4. Higher Property Value
An insulated patio roof has a more finished, more expensive look than an uninsulated one. Insulated roofing makes your patio looks neater and more attractive, boosting your curb appeal.
Also, quality insulation and other energy-efficient features increase a property’s sale value, maximising your ROI on the installation. A lot of home buyers are looking for properties with that added layer of comfort and function, especially when it comes to energy efficiency. Having an insulated patio roof can make your house more attractive to interested buyers.
Be sure to invest in high-quality insulated roof panels that deliver solid, long-term protection against excessive heat to get your money’s worth.
