Warm roof construction is becoming more popular in new build and refurbishment projects, mainly due to its greater insulation value. With a warm roof, the insulation covering is continuous across the roof, which means there is no thermal bridging (no heat loss through the roof joists etc.) It also eliminates the need for ventilation in the roof space which can be one of the main causes of roof breakdown.
The insulation can be installed by the roofing contractor in a range of thicknesses to suit a client’s needs. This system can be used on an existing timber roof to upgrade the insulation value as long as the decking is in good condition and there is no trapped moisture below the existing membrane.
This system is also suitable for installation on concrete, steel or asphalt roofs to upgrade the insulation value.
