Gaps Suggestions for Cedar Rainscreen Application
Our house is in the PNW and we will be siding it with 2 layers of 30 min felt and 1X4 cedar horizontally connected to vertical 1X1 ripped Trex Decking furring strips. We are adding fiberglass screening to the top and bottom.
Because of the wasp and other creatures and their desire to inhabit warm dark spaces, we were wondering if anyone had a good rule of thumb for gaps between the boards.
Our plan is for a 1/8th inch gap. Should we simply cover the entire surface behind the boards and atop the battens in the screen material, or will that have its own problems?
thank you for any suggestions.
