Title: Insulating roofs at rafter level: sarking insulation

Ref Code: GG37
Authors: C Stirling

Abstract1: This Guide highlights sarking insulation, a system of roof insulation where the insulation material is laid between and over inclined rafters. It can satisfy the thermal requirements of building regulations and allow complex roofs to be more effectively insulated with a reduced risk of thermal bridging and condensation problems as the roofing timbers are kept at or near internal environmental conditions. This Guide provides advice on specifying sarking insulation and on avoiding the associated technical risks.
