Roofing and Roof Cavities
A discussion with photographs, in relation to the issues discovered with the volume built home during the removal of the 15 year old concrete tiled roof, plasterboard ceiling and insulation batts. Further detailed discussion and photographs showing how we addressed all the previous roofing issues and the installation of roof cavity insulation as well as the smart membrane / sarking installed below the new Colorbond steel roof.
A discussion with photographs and video showing the issues discovered with the old timber deck that was demolished and how a new timber deck was installed including detail on the construction and treatment of the new deck as well as the drainage and Geofabric put in place.
This video goes into great detail about how the house was insulated. The passive house wall and ceiling wraps are discussed as well as roof and wall cavity bulk insulation and different types of insulation options including wood fibre insulation / Life Panels. How to avoid and fix any penetrations in the membranes, electrical and plumbing cuts and holes in the walls, as well as drilled holes and minimising staples is all graphically depicted and explained. There are also interviews with the passive house builder in relation to some of the insulation utilised, including wood fibre boards used in place of fibre cement sheeting above windows and doors.
