Cedar Breather - Ventilated Underlayment
Cedar shingles & shakes need to dry from both sides. Given the natural absorptive quality of cedar, you need to create an system that dries the wood from the inside out. Cedar Breather provides space for a continuous airflow between the solid roof deck and the shingle. This space will allow the entire underside of the shingle to dry, eliminating excess moisture, preventing thermal cupping and warping and reducing potential rotting.
