To limit heat loss and prevent problems such as condensation, mould growth and staining occurring at cold spots in the construction, insulation should be continuous at junctions between the roof and other elements, particularly the eaves and gable.
At eaves, wall insulation should be continued between the rafters until it butts the underside of the Quinn Therm QR boards. Where there is a cavity closer at the wall head the additional wall insulation may be fixed to the wall plate.
Gable walls should be insulated for their full height and the insulation extended to meet the underside of the Quinn Therm QR boards. 81
