Method Steps

  1. Preparing the Roof

    We recommend to strip off tiles, tile batten and any existing felt to expose the rafters.

  2. Installing Breathe-R over Rafters

    Breathe-R can be installed over rafters, starting at the bottom of the rafters and running the product perpendicular to the rafters. We recommend to staple the product in place at 300mm centres and draping the product by 10-15mm.

  3. Overlapping Breathe-R Insulation

    Once the first run of Breathe-R has been installed, we then recommend to install the next layer above and overlap by 100mm. We recommend to use the double sided tape, which is built into the product for the horizontal overlaps.

  4. Installing Tile Battens

    We then recommend to install your tile battens and tiles, using good building practice.
