Insulating the roof: Using local materials rafters are installed over the tongue & groove roof boards. The size of rafters will depend on the R-value required to meet local codes. Insulate & apply metal roofing or shingles. High density spray foam provides the highest R-value for thickness & makes the roof water proof
