    I noticed in several of your videos that the spacing of the battens supporting the metal roofing varies in the above-sheathing ventilation (perfect roof). Seems like the spacing of the battens is critical. Have you developed an effective strategy that reduces oil canning when walking on the metal roof? If so, what have you learned?

    • Jim, Good question. First, I try to always use Strairated panels. That’s a panel that’s not flat in the middle and helps to prevent oil canning. Second, use 24ga metal. That thicker metal compared to 26ga makes a big difference. We do sometimes vary the battens to make more support in walk areas like valleys for instance. I’ve really not had any problems with oil canning when using these two strategies. Best, Matt
