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.
A cold ventilated roof has a layer of insulation above the ceiling joists. A warm roof has insulation just below the metal roof covering, creating a seal around the roof of a property.
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.
