Roof Sisalation in Perth
Sarking is a type of membrane made from heavy duty paper or cloth material that’s positioned under the roof tiles when the roof is being constructed. It prevents dust and moisture from entering the roof cavity, and in some cases it’s a flame retardant.
Sisalation is brand of sarking that uses a foil film over cloth material. It’s then strengthened with fibre glass for added insulation and protection from the elements.
The Benefits of Sisalation
Being very low maintenance, Sisalation is well worth the investment because of the extra benefits it provides.
The addition of foil makes the roof Sisalation light reflective, which can save you money on heating and cooling. It adds a second layer of protection under the roof tiles, minimising radiant heat and dust, thereby increasing the effectiveness of the insulation and making the building’s interior more comfortable. It also protects the timber trusses from excess moisture which can make the nail plates pull away from the wood.
