More About EcoFoil Cathedral Ceiling Insulation

Insulating a cathedral ceiling can be somewhat complicated and labor intensive if you are not familiar with the requirements of ventilation and thermal heat transfer. Depending on the construction method and materials used there are multiple options for insulating between the exterior roofing and the interior finish.

As with any residential roof structure, there must be adequate ventilation provided from the eave of the building to the peak of the roof. This is important for proper natural airflow in order to eliminate the opportunity for condensation to form between the roofing materials. The easiest way to ensure a ventilation gap in a cathedral ceiling is to install insulation baffles between each ceiling joist. These are easily stapled to the roof sheeting and they create an airspace that will run continuously from the eave to the ridge.
