Default Getting Creative with Drip Edge Material

Hi Community,

I am curious what folks have used as drip edge material when straying away from plywood and what their experience with that material has been.

I'm putting up a 16' yurt- so looking for a material well suited for that size.

Curious if anyone has tried using hardie board for a 16'.

If you have used an alternative material- can you provide details on it?

Thanks everyone!

We just used plywood and cut it into strips and painted it.

We didn't use any on our Traditional Ger. We placed the lattice work around the edge, covered everything with Tyvek and stapled the Tyvek to the platform (our platform is raised above the level of the deck). Then covered with the canvas cover and stapled that to the platform. The lattice work has no where to go. Going on 5 years without a problem.

Some customers have used PVC sheet board like this: https://www.royalbuildingproducts.co...gs/sheet-board which is flexible and durable. We have also had customers use Hardie Plank, but it might not bend into a tight enough radius for a 16' yurt. You would likely need to test a piece to be sure.
