Roofs, including beams

The following CPD materials have all been assessed and approved by the RIBA.
A warm flat roof represents one of the simplest forms of construction, and therefore one of the best ways of achieving the fabric-first principle, with reliable performance for the lifetime of the waterproofing membrane. Unfortunately, on-site constraints or confusion about the correct construction can lead to compromises in a roof’s design and construction. These compromises can store up problems that may not be seen for several decades, but which can lead to worse-than-expected levels of thermal performance or a shortening of the roof’s active life. This CPD article aims to demystify some common issues surrounding flat roofs, drawing on specialist knowledge in producing flat roof insulation.
