Metal Roofing Over Purlins
What is the proper roof assembly for a metal roof (such as Fabral Grandrib 3, http://www.fabral.com/residential.php#standingseam) which is screwed to 2x4 purlins 2' O.C., and covers a vented house attic in a cold climate? In particular I'm wondering if any sort of secondary moisture barrier, like felt paper, is needed between the metal and the purlins? I understand felt paper is recommended when metal roofing is applied over plywood or OSB.

Will positive pressure work to vent an attic (i.e., blowing air in)? Attics exhaust fans are a bad idea. But what about blowing air in (using positive pressure).
