Choose the right materials for the roof lining allows you to create the best thermal insulation and hence saving on consumption, thanks to the insulating properties of the cover attached. Find the right material, therefore, is particularly important to maximize the potential of your home and make it as efficient as possible, including in relation to the environment in which it is inserted. The main distinction that should be made is between tiled roofing or panels, but also within the first category, the choice is wide and varied. The most famous and popular are the terracotta tiles or bricks, i.e. formed from clay. Read and easily workable, the clay roof tiles are particularly suitable in areas with a mild and not particularly rainy.
This is because, by absorbing water up to 20% of their weight, tend to favor any possible infiltration phenomena that freezing can cause interstitial bulge frost damage of water, damaging to the roof itself. In cold areas and mountainous regions, on the contrary, it is preferable to use the cement tile, built since the 1960s, which absorbs up to 2% of their weight, eliminating the possibility of freezing of the element. Generally speaking, the factors to consider when choosing the type of tile or are the geographical area and its climatic conditions, the slope of the roof, the weight of the structure, the intended use of the building and finally the aesthetic element. For an even more effective, we must also assess the roof insulation. Thermal and acoustic insulation of roof space allows you to create a comfortable living space using the space between the supporting beams in the attic. In particular, the isolation of unused and uninhabitable attics aims to minimize the heat loss of the roof. [Read more →]
