Attic Insulation in Phoenix

Attic Insulation Contractor in Phoenix, AZ

We all know that it doesn’t really get any hotter than being an attic insulation contractor in Phoenix! Long days with the scorching sun beating on your home or office can wreak havoc not only on your utility bill but also on your home’s cooling equipment.

Hotter temperatures in your Phoenix home means that higher output is required by your AC unit. Although Arizona is recognized most for its hot summers, our winters have seen weeks of freezing temperatures as well.

Along with maintaining a healthy roof, insulating your attic is a key factor in reducing your energy costs and usage throughout the year. Although it may not be a ‘visible’ home improvement, hiring a Phoenix attic insulation contractor is a functional home improvement that will help you and your family stay comfortable year-round, and ensure the longevity of your heating and cooling equipment.

What Phoenix Home Owners Should Understand About R-Value

Insulation levels are determined by R-Value. The R-Value for insulation measure the insulation’s resistance to heat that travels through it. Higher R-Values mean the insulation has a better thermal performance.

As a leading Phoenix attic insulation contractor our recommended R-Value for our Owen’s Corning AttiCat expanding blown-in insulation is an R38. More isn’t always better when it comes to attic insulation in Arizona. Going over this value will not make enough of a difference to justify the attic insulation cost. R30 or R38 is what you should aim to have in your attic to ensure your home is well insulated.

Cellulose vs. Fiberglass Insulation

Most homes, built since the ’80s, have cellulose insulation installed. Cellulose settles over time, which means that you may have started out with an R30 but most likely have an average of 4” of insulation now, which is not enough to insulate your home. JBS uses Owen’s Corning AttiCat Expanding Blown-in Insulation, which is made of fiberglass.

Here are some of the benefits of using fiberglass insulation:

  • If fiberglass rolls and batts are installed properly they will not settle. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation will have less than 1% settling, but the R-value will be maintained.
  • The thermal performance of fiberglass insulation will last the lifetime of the building as long as the installation instructions from the manufacturer are followed.
  • Fiberglass insulation does not hold moisture, even when exposed to humidity. Because fiberglass insulation does not absorb water, it doesn’t lose its R-value.
  • Fiberglass insulation is not caustic and does not contain any chemicals that will disintegrate wires and pipes.
  • The fiberglass insulation industry helps free up space in landfills by recycling 500,000 tons of glass containers.
  • Many fiberglass insulation manufacturers have plants that use up to 50% or more recycled materials in their products.

Our Phoenix Attic Insulation Process

One of our certified Phoenix attic insulation installers will enter your attic (in the summer this MUST be a morning appointment) and assess how much insulation is currently there. They will then provide a quote based on the R-Value you wish to achieve and the value that the attic space allows.

We can install our product right over the existing insulation, which will save you money by not having to remove the current insulation.

Once the contract has been signed, a two-man crew will arrive to install the insulation. It doesn’t take long in the cooler months of the year but, in the summer, it can be an all-day process due to the extreme heat and limited time the worker can safely stay in the attic.

I've worked here for 19 years and it's the best place ever! Great family owned company!
Best place I ever worked at in my life
We were in the process of purchasing a home, based on a recommendation from our inspector we were in the market for a roofing company. Based on my grandmothers referral we went with “JBS Roofing” I couldn’t be more happy with the service. From the kind lady taking our call and helping us schedule a timely inspection to meet our 10 day inspection period in our contract to the tech. Our technician was thorough and honest. He quickly identified the facts of the condition of the roof and even provided his opinion. Both extremely helpful when looking to purchase a home. Steve was amazing! Thank you guys. I highly suggest this company and we will be using them for future needs!
A company that cares about their employees, internal and external customers.

Foam Roofing in Phoenix

What is Foam Roofing?

SPF or sprayed polyurethane foam is one of the most popular, durable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly roofing systems in Phoenix. Years of research back this relatively new technology and show the many benefits of foam roofing. Urethane foam roofing in Phoenix offers you a long-term solution for your home. The original SPF roofing has been installed on residential homes in Phoenix since the 1970s.

Although the urethane products we use are similar, our materials are more modern and have been refined and significantly improved over the years. Although the majority of foam roofing contractors offer SPF, you can be assured all of our materials are of the highest possible quality.

Is Foam Roofing in Arizona Worth it?

Yes, the best system for your flat roof is polyurethane foam. Phoenix residential foam roofing is sprayed on, resulting in a seamless protection layer for your home and it pays for itself due to the insulation value. This means the thickness of the material will save you money on your cooling and heating costs. In addition to leak protection, your Phoenix foam roof will last for the long term.

What Is Foam Roofing in Phoenix Made of?

When the liquid components of a polyol resin and isocyanate are combined, the result is urethane foam roofing. The material is then sprayed onto the surface of your roof. The reaction of the liquid mixture creates a durable insulation layer on your roof. The minimum application layer is one inch. We can use thicker applications for extra insulation.

Why Should You Choose Foam Roofing Phoenix AZ?

The combination of benefits and ease you receive with a residential foam roof in Arizona are excellent for the unique weather in the area. Foam roofs have become popular all over the state. At Jim Brown and Sons Roofing, we help you take advantage of all the advantages you receive with foam roofing. We are a family-owned business with over 40 years of experience in the Phoenix area offering high-quality materials and workmanship. Contact us today for a free estimate!

Reasons to Consider Foam Roofing in Arizona

The application process for a residential foam roof in Arizona uses a blowing agent free of CFCs or chlorofluorocarbons. This means you are having a green roofing solution installed. You can take pride in your new roof and the benefits you receive because everything is environmentally friendly.

One of the benefits of polyurethane is insulation. During a Phoenix summer, you need your roof to keep heat away from your home. During the winter, you are kept warm by the same insulation. The insulation is so superior, your energy consumption decreases and you are helping the planet by going green.

A residential foam roof in Arizona keeps water away due to the virtual impenetrability of the closed-cell structure. Since your foam roof helps ensure appropriate drainage, it will help prevent water from collecting even when it is raining. As Phoenix foam roofing contractors, we recommend polyurethane roofing regardless of which type of roof you have. We simply use foam to spray on your new roof.

At Jim Brown and Sons Roofing, we want your roof to be durable whether we are performing foam roof repair in Phoenix or installing an entirely new roof. A spray foam roof is resilient, provides you with durability and protects your home for the long run.
