SUBJECT: RE: RE: Wanted SIPs for ceilings or roofs feedback

Drew,
You need to add a very important drawback to the use
of panels in a roofing system. Read the questions in
the Forum "SIP Foofs". I have since found the same
problem in the joint of the wall panels high on the
wall of a cathedral ceiling. If the panels are not
sealed properly, a task that I gather is not as easy
as it sounds, and they leak it can be a major problem.
I have found that a lot of the panel vendors now are
saying that a "hot roof" application, ie shingles
applied directly to the roof panel, is not
recommended. That leads me to conclude that the
problem is persistent. The recommendation now is that
the roof panels must be vented. The recommended roof
vent is a 2x2 strapped to the panel with another
subroof over the panel, then the shingles. What I
have not seen is anyone address the problem of the
wall panel.

I think there is still a lot to learn about the use of
the panels in all applications. What do you think?
