Re: Roof over with insulation and ddpm

George Meyers popped in my head as I read this. I can see no reason why his method wouldn't work. I don't agree with everything he says (like his wild musings on using stacked cabinet drawer slides to make a slide out based on the drawer slides rating... please don't do that... drawer slides are only rated X LBS for X Inches width) but I do think this would work. The metal expansion could be lessened by coating the roof with a heat reflecting coating (I prefer Snow Roof Elastometric Roof Coating). This is also a good method of adding insulation if you discover, after you've converted, that you need more insulation. Not that any of us who do that...
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Re: Roof over with insulation and ddpm

I'd love to do that and get an r-10, but I checked the links- they're all for stationary buildings.'

What happens when you got a steady 60+mph wind beating against it?
