INCLINED BUILDINGS AND HOUSING COVERHOUSING REHABILITATION INCLINADA
The sloping roof, a traditional architectural solution for the building envelope in which the primary requirement of any cover to collect water and prevent penetrate inside by a structure formed by skirts with varying pitch was guaranteed. this type of roof water drainage is carried out: the steepness of the skirts determines the amount and speed of the water to evacuate and drainage is done through open systems such as dumping by the eaves, or closed , pouring water in gutters and downspouts.
Skirts, more or less inclined, are the main elements of this type of roofing and are the key points to ensure water tightness.
The use of sloping roof and waterproofing system allows the use of a space (space below deck), traditionally used as a warehouse or storage for use as living space which has forced structural changes in pitched roofs in addition to natural waterproofing layer involving the inclined flaps must add a layer of thermal insulation.
Rehabilitation of pitched roofs, also called hot covers or a single sheet, requires a number of conditions such as waterproofing and thermal insulation, but also ventilation and the use of light elements are met. Extruded polystyrene, expanded polystyrene, polyurethane foam, are some solutions for the thermal rehabilitation of pitched roofs, rehabilitation can be performed by either the inside or the outside of the tire by including the thermal insulation under tile or tile.
