Have you ever heard of a “mansard roof”?
Even if you have never heard of it, we know you’ve seen one before. It’s a roof that has four sides which all slope downward. Halfway down, the sides curve slightly to a steeper angle.
They are a truly unique style of roof, and can make for quite a beautiful visual on a house.
However, when it comes time to install spray foam insulation, they can cause quite a bit of trouble!
A Maple Glen homeowner was renovating their master bathroom and decided to improve the efficiency of their whole house by applying closed-cell spray foam to the roof.
He knew that a mansard roof would be tricky to insulate, but trusted the expertise of AGL Spray Foam to complete the task.
Our team applied a 7″ layer of Lapolla Foam Lok 2000-4G, which provided an R-value of R-49. Incredible!
With complete air sealing, this house will be well-insulated and comfortable, just in time for the chilly winter months.
