Warm Roof or Cold Roof – Don’t Get it Wrong

Warm Roof or Cold Roof?

There are three types of flat roof construction:

  • Warm Roof
  • Cold Roof
  • Hybrid (or mess-up!)

Make sure your roofer or builder understands:

  • Thermal properties
  • Thermal bridging
  • Vapour barriers
  • Dew points

On smaller roofs, lack of guidance from the Designers and Architects, tends to be the reason Roofers and/or Builders get this wrong. Solving problems with a sweating and badly installed roof is now becoming a large part of our daily work load.
