New Approach to Insulating a Low-Slope Roof
Regarding Josh Salinger’s article “a new take on insulating a roof” in issue 299 of Fine Homebuilding. I am in the process of selecting the envelope details for a new home soon to be constructed and I’m wondering if this approach would be effective for ventilating a 2:12 single pitch roof in zone 5 of northern California? This looks like a thoughtful solution to eliminating above grade plastic foams, but based on other articles on GBA highlighting the ineffectiveness of ventilation channels on low slope roofs I am wondering if this roof assembly would be appropriate for my application.
