What is a warm roof construction?
Many times we get asked about warm roof constructions and how they compare with cold roofs. This signifies a growing generation of customers who want to find new and innovative ways of conserving energy and saving money on household bills. As more and more of us are making the use of outdoor space and adding on flat roof extensions, conservatories, man-sheds and summer houses, a warm flat roof construction can be just what is needed to keep warm, dry and insulated particularly in the winter months.
Basically, a warm roof construction is formed by placing insulation over the top of the roof structure. This means that the timber structure beneath is warm, which is why the term ‘Warm Roof ‘ is formed. This type of warm roof system is highly recommended by architects and specifiers in the UK as it avoids the need for ventilation of the roof structure. It is also one of the easiest ways of insulating a flat roof as none of the existing roof is opened up as a rule.
