/ Attic Roof
- Starting at one end
of the roofing framework, measure the length across the trusses, adding
enough to allow hang at both ends. Cut the first piece and lay in place.
- Pull tight both ends
and attach to trusses and purlins using self-tapping screws and washers
or with pressure sensitive aluminum tape. DO NOT USE DUCT TAPE.
Follow taping instructions below. DO NOT USE MECHANICAL PULLERS TO
TIGHTEN INSULATION. It is natural for ATTICSHIELD to sag
slightly. This will not be noticeable from the inside of the building
- Cut the second length,
laying parallel to the first. Make sure to butt or slightly overlap
edges. Tape ALL seams.
- Roof sheeting can be
applied in the conventional manner as soon as there is sufficient insulation
in place to accommodate sheeting width. An alternative taping approach
is to combine it with the installation of the roof decking. After the
first piece of insulation is installed, fold the open end back over
the top of the roof deck. Butt the second length of insulation to the
edge and tape. Then fold the second piece back over the roof trusses
and continue to install the deck.
