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?

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

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