New glass skylights being fixed into new warm flat roofs using a liquid roofing system as the waterproofing.
I have watched a few of your videos in regards to flat ‘warm roofs’ on YouTube and have found them to be of great guidance with my current new build extension. Accordingly, I would be most grateful if you would answer a couple of questions that I have regarding your video posted on YouTube entitled ‘Thermal Bridging of a insulated flat roof through the front fascia’.
I’m looking to give this flat some warmth as it freezing in winter and a green house in summer. I also would like to put two skylight windows on the roof to release the heat in the summer, as well as replacing the windows front and back with something that slides or fold inside to release the heat.
I’m a keen diy enthusiast building a single storey one room (lounge) extension. I am going to have a rubber membrane flat roof and have been doing some research online. Your videos crop up in the search results frequently. I must say – thanks for the information, it’s great that people like yourself aren’t afraid to pass on your knowledge.
I had the conversion done 20 years ago. The flat roof has a very shallow slope and consists of joists, surmounted by furring pieces, transverse spacing battens for ventilation, ply deck with mushroom ventilators, and multiple felt layers. It is also penetrated by a soil pipe near the condensing boiler vent. The ply deck appears to be in sound condition but blackened, presumably by condensation.
We have a small flat roof at our property in Ealing the bedroom below it was absolutely freezing this winter – we only moved in recently. The roof itself is in good condition and has recently been recovered. What would be the best option for us to insulate this roof?
I have converted the garage into a games room and the ceiling has damp patches and the fuse has blown for the lighting. The roof has a drainage hole in one corner which is not very effective , as I have previously seen water pooling on top of the roof. I would also like better insulation in the roof as there is a lot of heat loss and wind that comes through the ceiling light fittings.
I want to put a second layer of ply sheet on top of the insulation board, I can screw that down around the edges, but want to put a line of fixings down the middle, but this would mean going through the board until I get to the ply underneath.
