Cor-A-Vent Inc. offers the new Sturdi-Spacer, a heavy-duty, breathable spacer strip for retrofitting new metal roofing over existing shingle roofs. Sturdi-Spacer installs in continuous rows, 2-feet on-center up the roof, just like wood batten strips. The difference, though, is the airflow; Sturdi-Spacer allows over 3 square inches of Net Free Vent Area to create a breathable batten system between the two roofs, allowing trapped moisture to drain away and fresh air to pass through. Create a minimum 1/8-in. air gap at the bottom of the roof behind the drip edge, and Sturdi-Spacer will provide an extra boost of intake ventilation from the eave to the ridge, enhancing the performance of ridge/exhaust ventilation at the top of the newly-installed metal roof. Sturdi-Spacer is made from 5/16-in. (8mm) thick single-ply polypropylene plastic and comes in strips that are 2-inches wide by 4-feet long. They are power-nailable and power-screwable, and will not compress like other commercial spacer products on the market. Metal panels or hidden clip systems can be applied directly to the Sturdi-Spacer for easy installation. Visit www.cor-a-vent.com.
