CertainTeed's FlintBoard® Crickets are a use-as-needed component of the FlintBoard® ISO family, designed to improve water runoff and prevent standing water, a common cause of roof failure. FlintBoard® Crickets are made from tapered high-density polyisocyanurate (ISO) foam that provides excellent thermal insulation and compressive strength, making it ideal for use in low-slope roofing applications. The crickets are available in various sizes, slopes, and shapes to fit the needs of different roof designs and configurations. FlintBoard® Crickets are designed to be installed in areas where water tends to accumulate, such as between roof penetrations or at the base of a roof slope. The tapered design of the crickets promotes water drainage, preventing standing water that can lead to leaks, roof deterioration, and other problems. As with all FlintBoard® ISO products, FlintBoard® Crickets also provide exceptional thermal insulation, helping to reduce energy consumption and costs assoc
