    Instead of the steel ridge and hip beams shown on the drawing we have on the advice of an SE constructed the roof with a 200 x 200 ring beam. Carpenter has also fitted the facia and the soffits, however the soffit is not ventilated. Is this likely to give me a problem with building control?

    Why aren't you using a breathable membrane? You know this is 2016 not 1986?

    Please bear with me I'm not very au fait with all of this, just trying to understand. I take it that I should specify breathable membrane this to the roofer?
    Will the BCO be OK with this.
