Using Typical Wood Battens

Using Typical Wood BattensTrapped water can cause major structural damage.  If the battens allow water to pond, moisture will penetrate through leaks and nail holes.  Water can get under the roof system.  Depending on the severity of the leak, roof sheathing and underlayment will rot, follwed by damage to the interior of the structure.  Eventually, mold may appear and continue to grow.

Moisture intrusion is one of the leading causes of structural damage.  Dry rot, mold and mildew problems are caused when the building envelope is not properly drained or ventilated.
