Florida home roof insulation and wall to roof connection details recommendation
High performance building newbie here. I’m planning new construction for my home in central Florida (climate zone 2) and need recommendations.
My roof is planned to be a low sloped (3/12 pitch), mono-sloped design. There’s no attic space inside. What would you recommend on an assembly like this, in my area, for high performance/pretty good design?
For the wall to roof connection, seems like high performance builders are cutting roof members at the wall to have a continuous layer of exterior insulation and air sealing. Anyone have experience in what’s possible for bolt on rafters in light of Florida wind codes? If I can’t bolt on rafters, how would you air seal the notoriously (so I’ve heard) hard to air seal wall to roof connection?
