If using a cold roof system, ventilation of timber roof spaces, particularly skillion roofs, has always been recommended by Nuralite to assist with removal of interstitial moisture and mitigate high temperatures in the ceiling cavity. The method for creating cross flow ventilation is a design consideration. A practical and unobtrusive way is using soffit vents or parapet venting.
Alternatively, as a guide, Nuralite recommends one Nuravent per 20 square metres of roof area. Install at high and low points to promote air flow in roof cavity, which should have interconnecting ventilating passages.
Nuravents are made of aluminum. They are simple mushroom shaped vents that can be purchased in powder-coated colours to blend in with the Nuraply roof. Nuravents can be installed on new or existing roofs.
