Understanding Roof Insulation
Home / About Us

 

What is roof insulation and what type of insulation do we use?

 

Our roof insulation is supplied as panels of 25mm thick polyurethane sheets which are supplied already chemically bonded to MFP boarding. The roof insulation sheets are very easy to fit to the roof of your cabin, they simply need to be screwed down through the sheet into the roof board below (you don't need to locate purlins, as the roof b​oards are thick enough to screw into at any point without the screw protruding on the other side). They then just need cutting to size around the edge of your roof, and any offcuts can be reused.

 

How will roof insulation improve the thermal efficiency of the building?

 

When installed, the roof insulation is a cost effective way of lowering the U-Value of your roof from 3.49W/m2 K to a far more effecient 0.76 W/m2K.

 

How is the roof insulation installed?

 

As you can see from the image, the roof insulation sits on top of the roof boards you receive with your cabin. So, whatever roofing you decide upon, be it shingles or felt, will be laid on the MFP board. This means you still get a nice, attractive tongue and groove internal finish along with the extra heat gained from the impact of the insulation.

 

 

 

Roof insulation can be added to a log cabin at a later stage and can be purchased from our extras section.
