What are the fasteners for roof exterior rigid insulation (4.5 inches)?
I am looking to use a detail similar to 4-05055 - metal roof/unvented/cathedral/exterior 4.5" rigid insulation. I have a few questions on the assembly:
1- are the layers of rigid insulation adhered together?
2- what type of fasteners are being used to go thru the first layer of sheathing, thru 4.5" insulation, 2nd layer of sheathing and into rafters? spacing? (I am located in NY - 90 mph ground wind)
3- do you know a relative comparison between this detail and using a SIP panel - cost? installation? structural?

Can unvented roof assemblies be insulated with fiberglass if I use rigid foam on the exterior of the sheathing?
