New Garage with Metal roof

Guest User

We are having a new garage/work shed installed, The contractor has recommended a metal roof installed over a bubble foil insulation directly onto the rafters with no deck. That sounds odd to me. Is that recommended? The building will be 28' x 32' and 1 1/2 to 2 stories. We do plan to add a heat source to the building for winter use at some point.

I would not recommend this sort of installation on this project, without decking, due to possible condensation issues.

+1 Not appropriate in this case. Make sure this is done properly with a proper insulation layer and venting (if a ventilated design) or will be a source of issues forever.
