They are used as roof membranes to regulate temperature and moisture levels within the roof, preventing condensation and promoting the longevity of the roof.
They are installed under the roof covering and should be securely fastened to the roof structure using appropriate fixings to ensure proper protection. Please consult the manufacturer's instructions for specific installation guidelines.
As lightweight membranes, they are suitable for various roof types, including pitched roofs and flat roofs. Choose the right product for your roof type based on the manufacturer's recommendations.
Selecting the right membrane for your building project will depend on what you require. Breathable roofing membranes are designed to let the building "breathe" and allow movement through the membrane to ensure water can leave the roof. Alternatively, if you require a completely water-resistant membrane, vapour control layers are often the route to go as they prevent any moisture from entering the roof.
