Finally if the insulation has been there for so many year s that it has lost its thickness and effectiveness.
Closed-cell foam when applied, immediately turns hard and becomes water resistant as well as rejects heat. When applied to your roof system, it will reinforce your attic structure and thus prolonging the life of your roof system.
