It works!!

I am a manager of historical area that has buildings with cedar shake roofs. The roofs with the cedar breather dry out much faster than those without. This intern prohibits the growth of moss and other organisms. Material is easy to cut and lightweight

Nice application to put under Cedar Shakes

I just installed it, so I can't speak long term. But the product covered what it said and was easy to install the cedar shakes over the top of it. The price seemed kind of high for a weave of plastic, but after you see the mesh up close, you will see how complex it is
