You work in an office building where the overhead sun seems to penetrate the roof right on to your workstation and burns the back of your neck almost every weekday. Even the fan set rotating at the highest speed doesn't help apart from circulating air to trick your brain into thinking that you're keeping cool. In the evenings, the cold in your house makes you think you're practically sleeping under the stars. Whenever it rains, you hear the bang of raindrops amplified as if you were walking outside under a large umbrella. Any of these scenarios sound familiar? Perhaps exaggerated but not off the mark in principle.

Over the recent past, roof insulation has increasingly become a primary concern in both commercial and domestic applications in Kenya. Often ignored or overlooked because of knowledge gaps, budgetary considerations or unavailability, this simple instalment can play a crucial role in making buildings more comfortable.

Depending on the material used and the method employed, good roof insulation can provide an effective barrier against external air, heat, cold or noise. Roof insulation also plays a crucial role in reducing heating and cooling costs for residential and commercial buildings.

 

The notion that these materials are not locally available has been debunked. Many still think that you can only get these materials from the US or China and wait weeks while you make an order. However, thanks to Jumbo Chem Kenya limited, you can get them locally and within hours.
