Would metal roofing (say Imperial Rib type profile) on decking and horizontal purlins work for venting a roof assembly with sealed fibrous insulation-filled rafter bays?
The main question is whether the air space provided by the metal ribs would provide adequate air flow. If not, how about vertical 2X 'purlins', forming site-built insulation baffles that would be insect screened at both ends?
