Community and Q&A

I am searching for a plastic shimming product for providing a drain plain behind vertical siding.

user-239261 | Posted in Green Products and Materials on

I know there is a least one product on the market that provides a rot proof material to use behind vertical siding. It should be rigid,(not Rain Slicker) and only about a quater of an inch thick with drain holes. Has anyone seen or heard of such a product?
