zinc or copper roof mildew protection
 
How are zinc (or copper) strips installed to provide mildew protection? How wide are the strips? Do you lay a strip under the ridge shingles with a bit of the metal exposed? How are they nailed?

thanks

yes, as you described. they are tacked then nailed with the ridge. if youre using copper, be sure to use copper nails.

zinc strips...
 
these zinc strips are completely ineffective unless applied every 4 0r 5 courses.a foot wide galvanized ridgecap works great but really ugly.
