Gutex Multitherm Roof Insulation - Passive House Insulation Series (part 3)
Tuesday 30th June 2020
Niall Crosson, our technical manager, describes the benefits of applying Gutex woodfibre board to the outside of a pitched roof.
In part three of my Passive House insulation series, I outline the key steps to applying Gutex Multitherm wood fibre insulation to the roof of my new build Passive House. I explain the use of Heco screws and the application of Solitex Plus Connect, a windtight roof lining breather membrane that features a time-saving integrated windtight sealing tape.
