Hi all,
I have a garage/gym :boxing: at the end of the garden (6m square) i have 2 problems.

1st. The metal sheet roof has condensation which then drips all over the floor inside - is there something i can cover the inside roof to stop the air getting to the cold roof causing the condensation :scratch: ?.

2nd problem - the garage has been built on a concrete base and on the one side the rain hits the breeze block wall runs down the wall and then is coming underneath into the garage, so you have concret base with damp proof strip and the breeze block wall built on top ive try`d to seal the wall and base corner with just mortar but the problem remains. :help:

until these problems are sorted i dont want to have any electric added.

hope my explanations are clear ?

Regards
Mike

lower the ground level around the out side of your concrete a little and improve drainage.
strip off the tin roof, board over with 8x4 sheets, then felt, then put the tin back on top.
tin roofs freeze in winter then drip a lot of water as they thaw.
? tell us how far apart are your roof rafters.

I can only lower the ground level on 2 sides, the other sides have been built directly ontop on the base not on the edge.

Dont fancy taking the whole roof off, there is about 6 sheets overlapping perfect fit all drilled and sealed perfectly, was hoping i could maybe glue some sort of lagging or something to the inside of the roof. :scratch:

for a seal around your floor / walls if you've got a 4½ grinder use a stone cutting disk and go round the joint line on the out side and clean
it, using the grinder at 45º or less so you get a small clean grove, clean the dust out, ( I would say rinse the dust out with a hose) (but)
then I would go to your nearest place that sell ponds & pond liners and buy a sealant called innotec or the equivalent, its not cheap, about £15 - £20 for a 300ml tube, this stuff will stick to and seal just about anything be it wet or dry, warm the tube up before use in a bowl of hot water, wear gloves as it don't wash off your hands or anything else you get it on.
for your roof you could get a price for the spray on insulation.
the trouble with tin roofs they freeze then drip in winter and you cook under them in summer.
if you lined your roof with 18mm ply and felt then you could just screw the tin to the ply using the same holes but leave the ply back a little
from the bottom ends.

someone else might know a better way.

Hi There

We sell a product called 'Anti Condensation' metal roof cladding. It has a thin 'fleece' lining on the inside that absorbs moisture as it rises. When you open the door and create some ventilation or the roof area heats up (this can happen even with watery sunlight on a cold day) it is released back into the atmosphere as vapour.

It is a fantastic product that never allows the build up of moisture and therefore dripping of water.

We have fitted it to:

* Air Craft Hangers
* Cattle Sheds Cattle Sheds
* Stable Blocks
* Domestic Garages
