It can be installed when building a house, doing home extensions, a home renovation or roof restoration. It is positioned under your roof during installation by the builder and is rolled out in sections either parallel or perpendicular to the eaves with an overlap between each layer. Roof sarking will protect the frame of your house from the weather during construction. When your home is completed, sarking will protect your roof cavity from storm driven rain and dust, improve it’s thermal performance, help it resist bush fire ember attack and reduce the risk of harmful condensation. Roof sacking improves thermal performance by shielding the home from up to 97% of radiant heat when combined with an air-space, helping to provide a more energy efficient and comfortable home.
