Validation Study of Experimental Insulating and Air-Sealing Technology for Enclosed Roof Cavities

Industry Partner: Massachusetts Clean Energy Council

The goal is to develop a minimally invasive retrofit insulation technology for enclosed roof cavities such as cathedral ceilings, flat roofs, and dormer roofs.

Current practices for retrofit insulation of enclosed roof cavities are either highly invasive, requiring removal of the ceiling surface, and/or create potential moisture damage issues on the interior surface of the roof sheathing. This process will not require removal of the ceiling surface and will not cause moisture damage.
