What is a cold roof?

A cold roof construction has a layer of insulation above or between the ceiling joists to conserve heat within a property.

Cold roofs are the traditional insulation method used in many existing properties. Cold roofs are perfect for flat roofs or similar structures where the increased height of a warm roof isn’t desirable or possible. With a cold roof, the temperature in the roof space will be lower than the rest of the property and so, a ventilation system is required to prevent the build-up of condensation.

What are the benefits of a cold roof?

Easy to Install
Cold roofs are the traditional insulation method, so if you’re fitting a new roof to an existing property, cold roofs are easy to install.
Conserve Heat
Although not as efficient as warm roofs, cold roofs still conserve a good degree of heat.
Maximise Roof Space
With a cold roof, less space is required for insulation which maximises the usable roof space.
Ideal for Extensions
As cold roofs won’t increase building height, they’re perfect for extensions.

Cold Ventilated Roofs FAQs

Externally a cold roof looks the same as a warm roof. All insulation is concealed internally within the roof space.

Yes, a cold roof needs ventilation because cold air can penetrate the roof space above the insulation meaning condensation can appear. A ventilation system will prevent the build-up of condensation.
