I've starting insulating the roof and that got me looking at the "old" hole where a (useless) chimney used to be. That chimney got removed for a solar panel setup.
As I'm insulating, this needs to be closed off from the weather entirely. I just have no idea on how to approach this.
What can you see (in order top to bottom) in the picture:
- red roof tile (they did a shit job "closing" the hole left by the removed chimney) - will be writing them to come fix that as it just lets air in
- some sort of mashed wood, possibly plywood (on top of which are horizontal strips of wood as braces for tiles)
- 80's roof insulation
- mashed wood sheets
The brighter yellow is a filler foam that was around the chimney.
The new-looking wood bit is a small piece of plywood they (didn't) cover the whole hole with (and I now can't get to due to solar installation on top of it).
Can I fix this from the inside to be isolated from the weather? How to do so?
- Sizes are in centimeters
- Apologies for names of things, no idea what the names are of something like "mashed wood sheet" in English
- Also no idea if this would be the place to ask, but StackExchange doesn't seem to have another site for this, didn't think the wood-working one was a good fit
