The roof construction and air circulation for a good loft

February 17, 2018

If you have to renovate the house into a two-story building would require a large cost. If the funds do not yet exist, will your child’s wishes not be realized? Relax, we can still use the attic area. Many people use the attic as a warehouse or storage area. If space is eligible, you can just use it as a bedroom. In the meantime, perhaps you need to call the recommended kent loft conversion if you wish for the professional’s help in making your loft great again.

 

It takes a careful planning if you want to make a room in the attic area. We should be able to process the airflow system in order to keep the coolness and comfort for the occupants.

Fresh air entering through the window door will be thrown out into the hot air through the attic. If you compare, the air temperature of the attic feels higher than in the lower area. We need to do some engineering on the attic room to be a comfortable and decent room.

Roof Construction

Your attic room will deal directly with the slope of the roof. You should make sure the floor height of the lowest roof area is adequate if you stand there. Make sure that your head is not knocked against the roof truss. At least a safe height of no less than 2 m – 2.4 m is required

Materials on the roof construction should also be checked. If you use mild steel, we will have difficulty making space in the attic because the distance between the horses is 1 m to 1.5 m. The loft area is more easily formed if you use concrete horses or wooden horses.

Air Circulation

Here’s what we’ve talked about air circulation in the attic area. The air in the attic feels hotter than the room beneath it. To fix this, install the insulator to reduce the heat uptake under the tile. You can use aluminum foil, polyurethane or glass wool.

If still possible make an additional window on the attic wall. You will get a much better fresh air circulation. If still not cool, you can install Air Conditioner (AC).
