Roofs are an essential part of any home or building, and while providing it with the required protection, they also act as a point that allows heat from the sun to enter the building. You can reduce this heat through the use of insulated roof panels.
These roof panels will be made up of an insulating material, generally rigid polyurethane foam, that is sandwiched between two layers of materials that need to be both waterproof and non-corrosive so that the panels can resist the weather. Many of these roof panels use galvanized steel for the layers that cover the insulating material.
These insulated panels can reduce heat transmission by at least 5 to 6 degrees. They can also reduce any noise from rain, and add to the sound-proofing of the building. The added rigidity given by the insulation allows the roofing to be made in much larger lengths, thus reducing joints.
