Topic: Roof insulation

My flat is on the first floor with open terrace above. What is the best way to insulate roof to prevent heat radiation? I am thinking of erecting roof top shed - is this a good idea? If yes, what is the best material for the shed? Steel sheet? Asbestos? or FRP sheets? Please suggest. Thanks.

Dear

hermal insulation is a method to reduce the transfer of heat from outside to inside. To make house heat proof, thermal insulation is a good choice. An insulated home is more comfortable as the temperature remains consistent over weather changes. It makes the house comfortable and keeps the temperature of   house cool in summers and warm in winters. It is very useful to keep the temperature of the house independent from outside temperature.See the link below
