Construction in Thailand Is building in Thailand as bad as it seems? Can properties really be built and fitted out to European standards? Would you like to Build your own house in Phuket, or a swimming pool in Bangkok? Solar water heating in Pattaya? Or maybe you want to build a resort or guesthouse on Koh Samui? If you want to build a luxury house in Thailand then this is the forum for you.

Hello guys, i got started on my building 2 weeks ago, and i decided to go with Bluescoope steel roofing. Next question is to order with or without the foil/iso under? The thai guys here building for my says that foil not last long on the sheets.. The sheets i look have 5 and 12 years warranty for steel/collor but i did not ask for the foil..

Get the foil/iso under. I would. And without a doubt use 6" Insulation above your ceiling as well.

I too have a question about the durability of the foil. My last rented place had foil-backed steel roofing (of unknown brand), the roof had no soffits and where the foil was exposed it was steadily breaking off and fragmenting into glitter all over the garden. Does anyone have long-term experience to share?
Thanks.

I'd also recommend the sheet metal with the foam center, a construction company I consult with sometimes recently made a switch to these instead of ceramic tiles and the difference in room temperature is very noticeable. The only thing is when it rains you will hear it, but I personally think that is a plus.

6" insulation above the ceiling. Not much sound on the inside at all. Speaking from experience not only in Thailand but in the states as well (Florida).

I don't remember a time I could hear the rain in the bedroom with a 9k BTU aircon running with sheet metal roof, that roll out aluminum UV reflective sheeting stuff (not the foam) and 6" insulation.

But I agree the rain noise is soothing as fuck

Can but you are limited to the shape/design of the roofing material itself, and the aesthetics of making it look nice with trim/finish.

Colorbond don't do a transparent or opaque sheet?
I'm going to redo the garage workshop and a few skylights would be good.

I agree. I have just mentioned this on the thread which deals with generators. A separate thread dealing with solar panels may be in order. There is one somewhere on the forum but no recent posts there.

Slick, I moved away from that town and sorry have no pics of the roof. It was coloured steel with attached foam and a reflective surface on the underside.
The roofing projected about half a metre beyond the building, so the underside there was exposed. The foam there was steadily falling off the metal. I guess that house was 2 or 3 years old.
Like the OP here I am thinking about roofing choices for my own future build. Based on what I have read here and elsewhere, the foam backed steel seems like a good choice. But I do have a question about its durability.

I am about to build and we are not sure what roof material to use. The misses like tile. I have seen a lot of projects using colorbond and I think the product seems good. SCB looks like a good tile to use. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

'cement tile' may or may not be the best for your build.

My wife says that we are having tiles. She has many friends who have metal roofs on their properties and say that they are all sweat boxes. Our present house has a metal roof but the first floor ( British first floor ) is unused so, effectively, we have very high ceilings. Our new house will have high ceilings and tiles with insulation.

Lets be honest here. How the actual fuck would your wife or her friends know anything at all about this subject? Building homes doesnt become voodoo when you arrive in Thailand.

I know you are Welsh and basically know sweet fuckall about warm climate home building, but to follow the advice of a Thai, rather than the tons & tons of information available on building homes in warm climates out of the USA & Oz, it just makes absolutely zero sense.

They have the sweat boxes not necessarily because of the roof.

As a matter of fact, all the ceramic roof tiles absorb easily sun radiation and forward it downwards under the roof in form of infrared radiation. Even early morning when no direct sunshine on that roof, you already can feel the heat by touching the steel roof structure.

Unlike the metal sheets, they bounce back the radiation, do not forward it downwards. Just try to touch it, especially the ones who are sold already with the foam insulation underneath (even quite a thin one). Any length can be ordered, there are so many new shops (beside GH and others) spread up around in the last 10 years. Advantage: easy and fast installation with savings in the thin supporting structure. Disadvantage: noise during a strong rain, however, with a suitable suspended ceiling it can be diminished.

Go for steel of course. It gives off the heat at night and doesn't leak or allow thieves access. Don't listen to an Asian woman when thinking of roofing materials, are you mad?
As kids the best sound was the rain on the metal roof at night, no insulation in those days. Bluescope is the go, just make sure it is screwed neatly and correctly. Australian standard is 65mm screws not 50mm.

For Slick and anyone else kind enough to offer an opinion. I finally found one of these foil-backed metal rooves, this one is a fairly new hotel in Nongbualamphu. This is not Colorbond, something cheaper. However, it illustrates my question. The newish foil and insulation is already separating from the metal sheet. Not surprising, the metal expands and contracts daily, the insulation does not. Where I lived before, this backing broke away entirely and fragmented around the garden. It was a bit like Christmas.
So my question is this: Does anyone have long term experience with this roofing? Does it hold together okay inside a sheltered attic?
Thanks.
