Re: How do i insolate my tin back veradah

Without knowing the exact details of your verandah I can only offer general advise. That said, I think ventilation would give you the biggest bang for your buck 😉. Allowing the hot air to vent out the top can at least reduce the temperature to ambient. I installed this on my tin shed, and it can make 10 degrees difference on hot days https://www.bunnings.com.au/ezylite-black-diy-static-roof-vent_p0820197. If you aren't worried about rain leaking in then a cheaper option could be https://www.bunnings.com.au/haron-100-x-75mm-silver-aluminium-pressed-wall-vent_p0810902. Just remember to take care when working at heights. I don't want anyone falling off a roof trying to follow my suggestion.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @marionm. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question about insulating a verandah.

It's great to see @ShaneOfAdelaide has promptly jumped into the discussion to assist. As they've mentioned our members would be much better placed to assist you with your project if they knew some more details surrounding what type of roof it has. Is this verandah enclosed? Perhaps you might like to post some pictures for us to see. The most recent discussion on this topic was How to add insulation to a sunroom with Colorbond roof? which you might get some ideas from.

 

We'll be looking forward to hearing more details about your project and assisting.

Yeah, some photos would be great @marionm so we can see your setup. Maybe just a fan is all you need?
