Drying on flash and batt unvented concrete tile roof – CZ3
Didn’t want to hijack the standing seam metal roof question, but I would like to confirm the details needed for my flat concrete tile roof in CZ3 (California)
Parallel chord web trusses, 5/8″ plywood with 2″ of closed cell foam (balance of insulation will be blown in cellulose or blown in fiberglas). Boral standard weight tile.
Is this a case where, as Martin said in the standing seam thread, the sheathing doesn’t have/doesn’t need a drying path – if so, should i use a vapor-impermeable underlayment? Goal is to end up with a roof that isn’t vulnerable to ember-driven fires… and, of course, keeps the weather out 🙂
