Building Regulations - Approved Document F1 - F2
Condensation In Roofs
F2. Adequate provision shall be made to prevent excessive condensation -a) in a roof; or
b) in a roof void above an insulated ceiling
Many eaves ventilators currently available are not fitted in the correct position, which either blocks the ventilation path into the roof void or prohibits the ceiling insulation being carried over the wall plate. This causes a cold bridge in the most vulnerable part of the building and therefore fails to comply with the latest regulations, with subsequent cost and environmental implications.
- The importance of the regulations is not always understood.
- Products that were designed years ago are not adequate for current insulation standards.
- Cold bridges are formed in the most vulnerable part of the building.
- Ventilation path to the roof void is blocked.
- Many products currently available are flimsy and do not give adequate performance.
- They are often installed incorrectly.
- A number of current eaves ventilators fail to direct the ceiling insulation.
BRE Report - Thermal Insulation: Avoiding risks
- 2.1 (c) Provide an air path to the roof space from the eaves ventilation opening equivalent to a 50mm continuous gap.
- 2.3 Condensation of Thermal Bridges.
- 2.3 (a) Carry the loft insulation over the wall plate to link with the cavity insulation.
