Ceiling has been installed to create a void, can you help?
Ceiling has been installed to create a void
My lounge has been added as an extension 20-40 years ago. It is single storey with a flat roof in good condition. I replaced the two pendant ceiling lights and was astonished to find the 7' (175mm) screwdriver went up to the underside of the flat roof!! This therefore means that I have 7' of uninsulated ceiling void/space. It does not have access from the outside because of the 5 foot overhang. The room is 22 feet X 14 approx. Do you have any suggestions please?
Written By AlanHi Bernard, this type of void is typical on a flat roof for the purpose of running services, so you don't actually need to do anything in this case. Insulation in the existing void is optional.
