Ceiling insulation, recommended for staying cool?

Hello !    It's not only about the thickness of the ceiling insulation

but about proper ventilation in the roof space.  Of that builder here 

don't have a clue.  There should be several 'holes' under the sofit 

( air intake ) and one or or two holes on the top of roof ( air to go out ), both protected against rain.  You and Google figure the rest.

The ventilation of the attic space is critical.  Hot air rises yes?  Make sure there are adequate vents (with window screen to keep out insects) installed into the soffit.  Roof top vents to not have to spinning types as the rising air is just spinning them,  If there are gable areas they can be used very well for outlet vents.

Never buy an apt on the last floor...the leaky roof will ruin your ceiling...plus hotter temps.

My un-solicited advice...Fix it cheaply and sell it 

Buy on a lower floor...problem solved.

Make sure you have mosquito protection with those vents
