How are insulation boards installed in roof applications?
When insulating your pitched roof, the insulation applied should have a combined minimum thickness of 180mm. If 120mm insulation board is installed between the rafters, another layer of 65mm insulation should be installed over the top.
Cut and install insulation boards vertically in between the rafters of the pitched roof. Ensure the boards fit snug in between the rafters in the roof and the thickness of the insulation boards matches the depth of the rafters. Ensure any boards joined are tightly butted together. Any boards installed should sit flush with no protrusions.
Cut and installed insulated plasterboard horizontally over the rafters. The boards should meet at the centre of the rafters, lightly butted, and fixed into place with drywall screws or large-headed galvanised clout nails. The screws should penetrate through the board and 25mm into the timber and no less than 10mm from the board’s edges, embedded just below to boards surface.
Seal the perimeter of the Insulated Plasterboards with a flexible sealant.
What type of insulated is used to insulate a pitched roof?
Pitched roofs can be insulated in between the rafters with mineral wool insulation material or rigid PIR insulation. 300mm of insulation is required when using mineral wood. 180mm of insulation is required when using rigid insulation boards. When using rigid insulation, the roof can be complete with a layer of insulation installed horizontally over the insulated rafters followed by plasterboards for a neat finish, particularly if you are creating a room in the roof. Insulated Plasterboard is a quicker alternative although not essential.
What size do I need?
When insulating a pitched roof, a minimum thickness of 180mm should be installed. The size of the Insulated Plasterboard you require depends on the thickness of the insulation board fitted between the rafters. For example, if a 140mm PIR board is installed between the rafters, a 40mm (52.5mm) Insulated Plasterboard should be fitted over the rafter to have an overall 180mm thickness. This decision is also based on the depth of the rafters and if the board meets the building regulations.
