flat roof construction.
Hi all. Building a flat roof -2.5% slope. The plans call for an air space between the insulation and the ply. Question....if I go with spray foam -2 lb...does the air barrier become irrelevant?
Do building codes allow for this compromise ?
I believe that if it is closed cell spray foam, not open, you are correct because it will be an air/vapor barrier. Check on buildingscience.com or greenbuildingadvisor.com
Yes, the International Residential Code does allow for some non-vented attic conditions like you are talking about.
I know it is a flat roof, cathedral type ceiling is not an attic area, but the code calls it that.
There are specific conditions that have to met though.
