We have a 1 1/2 story cape cod that was just re-roofed this summer (with Elk architectural shingles). Now that winter is approaching, we've noticed that our upstairs which has a finished bedroom and part attic has become very cold. Usually it is always 5-10 degrees warmer upstairs.
My first question is, has re-roofing our home and taking off both layers of shingles made our home colder? Second, since we have living space upstairs, should we add insulation to the rafters of the attic besides adding more floor insulation?
