Installation Guide: BreatherQuilt on Pitched Roofs

Prior to understanding the installation process, it is useful to know why BreatherQuilt is the right product and is commonly used on Pitched Roofs. Simply, because it is breathable, reflective and fulfils its purpose.

It is ‘Breathable’ owed to its 11 perforated layers. Being vapour permeable reduces condensation building up, by enabling water vapour to pass and thus, moisture to escape.

It is ‘Reflective’ owed to its most internal layer being made from True Aluminium Foil – which reflects 95% of radiant energy reflects back in to the home.

BreatherQuilt Instulation is Agrément Certified for new builds and also refurbishments and it will assist in achieving U-Values in less space cost and installation time. It replaces the need for a breather membrane and is a superior alternative to TLX Gold – from a cost and performance perspective.
