Domestic cold pitched roofs in the UK: - effect of using different roof insulation materials
Publisher: VEETECH Ltd; Allen Press
The type and thickness of insulation on the topside horizontal of cold pitched roofs has a significant role in\ud controlling air movement, energy conservation and moisture transfer reduction through the ceiling to the loft\ud (roof void) space. To investigate its impor... View more
