Roofing materials for multifamily buildings need to be durable enough to protect every unit from leaks, weather, fire, and other property damage. Insulation can be the key to that protection, and if you are also looking for a green solution that increases energy efficiency, you should consider polyisocyanurate, also known as polysio. Here are some of the benefits that polyiso can give the roof of your multifamily property.


Moisture Resistance

Polyiso insulation is highly regarded as one of the best types of insulation to reduce damage from condensation between layers of roofing material, thanks to its foam core.


High Thermal Rating

Is there an insulation material that resists moisture and extreme temperatures? Polyiso is known as one of the best products on the market for this feature, making it an ideal solution to reduce heating and cooling costs for residents and property owners.


High Performance in Fire Testing

One of the most important factors for any material in a multifamily structure is its ability to repel fire. This type of insulation has consistently performed well in 3 key fire trials, which is reason enough to choose it for your property.



Multifamily buildings may have more foot traffic than the average structure because of frequent inspections and routine maintenance. Polyiso insulation is durable enough to withstand the added weight of these inspections and is also less likely to become punctured than other products.


Smaller Carbon Footprint

Green solutions to construction are more important than ever to both property owners and contractors. This insulation material features many energy-efficient properties, including:


  • Made from recycled content
  • Reduces reliance on fossil fuels
  • Zero potential for depletion of ozone
  • No impact on global warming
  • Suitable for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system


With all these and other benefits, Polyiso insulation may be one of the best decisions you can make for your multifamily construction. This material can provide years of cost savings, durability, and safety for the operation of the building and its residents.
