We need to put some insect mesh on our parapet roof edges. Got to allow ventilation into roof but stop the insects. Soon the parapet will be covered by a Sarnafil roof covering which will overhang, still letting ventilation come up but effectively weatherproofing the mesh. What sort of mesh would you use? Stainless steel (expensive but longer lasting) or plastic (cheaper but will it last?) or PVC coated woven fibreglass? Or something else? And will a staple gun do to fix it - if so, any clues on staple sizes? This is Saturday's job so going to need to order some stuff pronto. Sorry no photo - too dark to take one now.
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but we're shortly to be starting an MBC build. The roof will be natural slate with Kytun dry verges and the facias and soffits will be aluminium. I've attached a CGI for reference. Who is generally responsible for fitting facias and soffits- is this normally in the realm of the roofer?
