How to Calculate Your m²/ft²?

How to Calculate Your m²/ft²?

It’s actually very easy to calculate how many square meters or foot an area is, whether it is a simple rectangle or more complex shape. When dealing with a simple rectangle, just multiply the length by the width for your total square meterage or footage. If you’re dealing with a more complex shape, treat each area as a rectangle and perform the same calculation. Then combine the square meterage or footage of each area for to get the total area.

Common Questions 

What is Roof Ventilation?

As the warm air meets cold air moisture is produced. In enclosed spaces this moisture can quickly settle on materials such as your timber, insulation and the items stored in your loft.

If this is allowed to continue the moisture can quickly cause long-term damage. This can include a build-up of mould and materials to begin rotting. Both can become expensive and, in some cases, unrepairable.

There are various products that can be used to maintain a constant flow of air through your loft space and therefore prevent moisture. These include purposely designed vents that are fitted at the eaves and ridge of your roof. You can also opt to use a range of tile vents.

Why Do I Need to Ventilate My Roof?

Condensation in your loft space can quickly lead to the build-up of mould on insulation and cause timber to rot. This can lead to poor thermal insulation and structural issues in the worst cases.

The only way to prevent moisture in your roof is to ventilate it. You will therefore need air to flow through constantly, which can be achieved by using eave and ridge ventilation. Tile vents can also aid your roof ventilation.
