Planning to build your dream home? The roof is the crown of your house. Having a sturdy and functional roof is extremely important for your house. A good architect will not only think of making an elegant and strong roof, but also a functional roof for your home. But how can a roof be functional apart from covering your head. Well, a roof of a building plays an important rope in regulating the temperature of your house. If your roof is made of a Heat insulation material, it can help you maintain the temperature both in winters and summers. This will help you minimize the use of appliances like air conditioners, heaters, etc. This will help you save cost of electricity in the future and help save the environment. Let us see how a heat insulation system works.

How Does Heat Insulation Sheets Work

A heat insulation sheet works on the basic principle of insulation. Heat flows from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature. This causes excessive heat to dissipate in the house during summers and let go of the heat in the house to the atmosphere during winters. A heat insulation sheet creates a layer of insulation around the roof which does not permit heat flow from in and out of the house. Because of this, the house with a thermal insulation sheet on the roof remains cool during summers and warm during winters. Let us look at the best roofing sheets for house.

Best Roofing Sheets for House

There are various types of insulation materials available for making heat insulation sheets for rooftops. The best roofing sheets for your house are:

  • Polyurethane Foam (PUR)

The PUR is one of the most widely used insulation material for rooftops. It offers very good fire resistance and an extremely low thermal conductivity of 0.023W/m.k. It also offers s very high compressive strength of 200-300 KPa. The PUR is extremely light in weight with a density of 30-60kg/meter cube.

  • Stone Wool

Stone wool is a thermal insulation material obtained from basalt stone. It is very common for mechanically fastened roofs where very high thermal resistance of over 1000°C is required. It also has a very low thermal conductivity in the range of 0.038-0.043 W/m.k. Stone wool is heavier than PUR with a density of 100-200kg/ meter cube and offers low compressive strength as well.

  • Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)

EPS is one of the most cost-efficient thermal insulation materials for rooftops. EPS is a self-extinguishing material, hence very safe against fire hazard. It also has a low thermal conductivity similar to that of Stone Wool and a good compressive strength of 100-250 kPA. It is lightweight in the range of 20-40kg/meter cube.

  • Extruded Polystyrene (XPS)

XPS is widely used in exposed roofing systems. It has almost zero water absorption and is self extinguishing in fire. It also has a very low thermal conductivity in the range of 0.034-0.038 W/m.k. It has a very high compressible strength of 250-750kPa, which makes it suitable for utility decks with high traffic. It is lightweight with a density of 25-35 kg/meter cube.
