qcon roof!

Air conditioning, fans, and anything related to keeping it cool, such as insulation. This would include any posts generally discussing how to keep it cool, such as which types of blocks are better insulators.... ideal wall thickness for keeping an A/C house cool, etc.

qcon roof!

Postby tex » Sat May 17, 2008 2:13 pm

I am currently planning my new build and want to go with a flat roof can anyone advice on whether it would be best to use regular concrete or would i get better thermal and weather protection from qcon slabs?

Never heard of anyone using concrete slabs or Q-con for a flat roof on a domestic building. If you are considering installing heavy machinery on the roof such as elevator machines, or industrial aircon units, you may need a roof as strong as a floor. Otherwise it may be easier to look into more standard and well tried and trusted forms of roofing and the ways of insulating them. Check out Nawty's postings for flat roof solutions.
