Got the last 3 beams and all the 2x6 stringers for the 5/8 plywood floor to be installed but first the sub floor must be insulated. I’m going to lay fiberglass reinforced scrim at the bottom of the 2x6 then string 16 gauge wire just above the scrim then install batted insulation above that. Will have rite around 3 inches gap between the bottom of the floor and the top of the insulation.

What Is a TPO Roof? TPO stands for thermoplastic polyolefin, a single-ply roofing membrane that covers the surface of the roof. The name is a bit misleading, because rather than being a plastic, TPO is actually one of a few different types of rubber, usually a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber.

It’s a shell still got a ways to go. Roof is next. I will be installing 3 inch polyiso rigid board mechanically fastened to the top of the plywood. Then mechanically fasten TPO on top of the ISO. I was wanting to leave the rafters exposed to fasten unistrut for hanging lights and such from the ceiling.

It is perforated scrim paper. I follow you on that. I’m always calling out insulating contractors installing with unperforated scrim on the commercial buildings at work.
