Remove the re-roofing danger, expense and hassle of wood firring.
- Eliminates tear-off
- Provides air flow and ventilation
- Easy to handle and install
- Won’t warp like wood firring
- Cost comparable to wood, increases profitability
- Won’t decay, corrode or crease metal
You May Also Need
Use Marco’s RE2® instead of wood spacers to solve common re-roofing problems. RE2 acts as a spacer between the old shingles and the new metal roof, providing efficient airflow and ventilation. Manufactured with quality, high-density polyethylene foam, RE2 is lightweight, strong and won’t decay or corrode the metal roof installed over it. In addition, RE2 will not warp, which causes the metal to crease.
