Can I use Cedar Breather for Walls?

Yes, you can use Cedar

Breather for side wall applications under your siding material. Similar to our Slicker Rainscreen, Cedar Breather maintains a 1/4” gap to promote airflow and ventilation.

The difference between Slicker and Cedar Breather resides in the color and manufacturing process. Slicker is yellow and contains vertical channels designed to promote drainage. Cedar Breather is black and has a conical shape pattern to promote circulation under cedar roofing materials.

Depending on the siding material and style, the black Cedar Breather may be preferred if the seams of the cladding are not flush.
