Wet insulation is a major issue when water is allowed to get underneath the roof system. When the insulation becomes saturated, it loses its ability to effectively insulate the building and energy will be lost.
Below is an example of wet insulation (notice the water bubbles).
At this point, the saturated insulation (pictured above in our "core cut") needs to be torn off and replaced before a new roofing layer is added. This can quickly become expensive as it increases the labor and material cost on a re-roof project. So make sure if you are experiencing leaks that you get them serviced early on to prevent complete saturation.
