Rainscreen- Slicker & Slicker HP

We have brought in two different rainscreen options: Slicker and Slicker HP. Slicker is a standard rainscreen which provide moisture protection for your home/building. It works in conjunction with a housewrap or weather resistant barrier to protect your cladding from problems associated with moisture. Slicker HP is also a rainscreen; however, it has a built in weather resistant barrier that is removable for convenience and ease of use. See below for additional information on these new products.

Slicker

-Provides protection for wall systems by eliminating moisture between siding and sheathing (Recommended for wood siding but is compatible with fiber cement, vinyl, manufactured stone, stucco, and metal)

-Patented vertical channels direct the bulk of moisture out of the wall assembly (make sure the slicker is installed with the vertical channels oriented up and down so water is able to escape)

Cedar Breather
 
Cedar Breather is a underlayment for wood shingle and shake roofing.  It provides ventilation and moisture control that dramatically improves the longevity of wood roofs.  It is incredibly easy to install and doesn't require any special tools or equipment.  
 
 
Cedar Breather also works as underlayment for metal roofing panels.  The added layer of ventilation provides trapped moisture in low slope applications a path to drain. It also creates a thermal break to minimize heat transfer from the roof surface to the structure. This thermal break promotes energy efficiency by stopping conductive heat transfer much like the air space between multiple panes of glass in a thermal pane window. This same break also provides sound attenuation by disrupting sound waves into the structure when rain hits the roof surface. The end result is a cooler, quieter, and healthier building.
