Bluescope Roof - Metal Sheet with Insulation

Recommended Posts

Having a Bluescope metal insulated roof installed and interested in experience with the product. They are installing the roof exactly like the roof in this thread.

 

https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/967803-corrugated-roof-with-25mm-insulation-pics-for-your-info/#comments

 

The styrofoam insulation is exposed exactly like the pics in the above thread and this leaves me uneasy about the install.

Why?

if you don’t like the look just pick up some shaped plastic end pieces from any of the big stores.

I have seen stryofoam in the elements and it crumbles apart. Granted its not Bluescope S-foam.

 

Will look into end pieces at Bluescope and HomePro.

That isn’t polystyrene (stryofoam) it’s PU foam.

 

HomePro may have them but Global House, DoHome, Thai Watsadu are more likely sources.

Thank you for opening this thread and sharing your experience.

May I ask you to post the exact details of the material you've used (sources, materials specs etc).

There is a  lot of erroneous, incomplete or confused info being posted here regarding Bluescope and their product.

btw Bluescope are the producer of the steel.

They don't roll-form and/or apply foam to the final product.

When you buy the Bluescope sourced, ready to be installed roof sheets you're dealing with a third party manufacturer (roll former) who purchase rolled steel from Bluescope - Bluescope themeselves don't roll-form their metal and don't apply insulation. They also don't sell thier product directly to retail customers.

A wifes relative is installing and was trained by Bluescope according to the shop.  Bluescope did not know he is a relative and recommended that he does the install due to experience, customer feedback and being trained on the product. The shop is in Thay Yang and it says Bluescope on the building and they have Bluescope brochures with many examples on display. Its a professional style shop similar to something in the US.

 

Sorry, thats all I know.

Went to the shop and a salesmen that has been there from the beginning, 10 years ago, said their is a special paint, has some glue/adhesive in it, that should be used to protect the PU-Foam from UV and moisture.  Many people do leave it exposed although that is not ideal or preferred so to speak.

 

They do sell a filler strip but that would not work for our application.

 

Please understand the above information was translated to me.

 

I will ask the installer, relative, what he knows about the special paint.

 

As UnHeard mentioned, and I confirmed it from this shop, the metal is from Bluescope and the PU-Foam is from another company. Their are various thicknesses of metal and foam. The better warranty follows thickness and price.  I did not get the name of the company. My interpreter, aka wife, gets frustrated when I act like a farang and ask a lot of questions and details 😉

Any oil paint will work to protect from UV and closed cell PU foam, is poor at absorbing moisture and any oil paint will protect it from that.

You might consider having the thin Furm I think it’s 3 mm glued on the underside of the <deleted> SHEET, and using Rockwall on top of the ceilings

I’ve done this and I think it’s a good working combination that’s a good price

One thing I didn’t think about but Rich is happening for example even this evening… Not a particularly cold night… Is that the there is condensation dripping down the roof and spotting on the ground. This is a relevant Irrelevant where the ground is just plants or earth But bum will get green marks on the concrete of a carport for example our carport for example… A little unsightly.
This kind of gross be fixed with guttering

After much internet research it seems that an elastermeric acrylic type paint should be used for closed cell PU.  Oil based paint chemicals may have a negative effect on the PU.

Just getting to Homepro is interesting.  

 

I decided to put cement made wood trim pieces up against the bottom of the roof. This blocks UV from hitting the PU-foam and matches the other trim.
