Josh Salinger, owner of Birdsmouth Design-Build, is on-site in Portland, Ore., to discuss the vaulted high-performance and foam-free roof assembly on their latest ADU build.
Vaulted roofs are a popular option because they create usable living space where an attic would usually be. Typically, plastic forms such as spray-foam insulation or rigid foam are used to deter condensation and moisture issues in a roof assembly.
In this video, Josh shares his plastic-free solution to manage moisture and allow for full-depth insulation with proper venting while creating a high-performance vaulted roof assembly.
Read more about all the details of this roof assembly in Josh’s article, “A New Take on Insulating a Roof.”
