Building regulations are becoming more demanding which means that even thicker layers of insulation are having to be installed in order to comply with current standards. JJ Roofing offers excellent vapour control layers that will match any property and requirement.
A vapour control layer will help you protect your building from the negative consequences of condensation. Condensation is created when warm air rises and forms into a liquid on contact with a colder surface above the insulation. Vapour control layers are used to block the passage of warm air entering the structure in the first place. This is achieved by installing it on the room side of the insulation.
In modern times, a vapour control layer is a vital component because it acts as an additional protective element that minimises the amount of warm air that enters. The risk of interstitial condensation is virtually eliminated when you use a vapour control layer while also correctly using ventilation techniques.
There are a variety of problems that can be caused by excessive condensation. These include damp and mould formation which come with a number of adverse effects on a person’s health including respiratory problems. In addition to the health implications, condensation can cause a number of structural problems such as weakening timber framed buildings and corroding other materials.
