Insulating Above Tongue-and-Groove Cathedral Ceiling
I have an upstairs room with a tongue and groove wood cathedral ceiling.
There is not much space between the ceiling and the metal roof.
It’s an older craftsman style house.
I live in Austin,TX and during the hot days the top of the cathedral ceiling can get up to 95 degrees.
The roof appears to not be vented as there are no soffits outside.
There is some sort of ridge vent on the top.
The metal roof was put on about 5 years ago.
I sure wish now I would have had a discussion with the roofing company about insulation when the old roof had been taken off.
Attached are some photos.
Looking for suggestions on how to better insulate.
I am good at DIY work. And would like to do most of the improvements if possible.
