Posted By: smokeyjonShould the construction be like a warm roof - ie celotex or similar between the studs, and if so can I only add 25mm of insulation to leave the outer 50mm free of insulation for ventilation of the timbers? Do I REALLY need to leave this gap?Are there any better ways of doing this? I wondered about adding a further 25mm on the outside of the studwork (I've been advised that the outer edge is more sensible than inside), or maybe more if I extended the cill, but wouldn't that prevent these timbers being ventilated. In this respect it seems like loss of airflow/ventilation vs greater scope for interstitial condensation. Confusing!
Posted By: smokeyjonPaul - I've seen that spray insulation on t'internet (or are you just talking about the stuff in cans?). I presume it's a N American thing (I haven't heard much about it over here - except warmcell that is)? You have LARGE houses over there. My 4 sq m bay probably doesn't warrant the costs of getting the kit to my site! Thanks though ;-)
Posted By: smokeyjonDo you think a breather membrane on the outer surface will prevent adequate airflow/condensate evaporation (is that what you meant about 'the vapour open covering') or do you think it'd still be OK?
