Was your home built before 1990?

Ways to Add Insulation to Your Flat Roof
When you are having roof work done, your participating contractor can install insulation by:
Blowing in insulation
Create access holes by removing sections of the roof deck, blow insulation into the roof cavity, then seal the roof and complete work.
Adding rigid or spray foam
Convert the roof cavity or attic space into an unvented, conditioned space by sealing the exterior parapet vents and adding qualifying insulation. Describe the work on the invoice.
