I'm going to have to replace some sections of roof sheathing as part of a re-roof project. What is there now is 1/2" plywood. I guess it's been OK because it's lasted almost 30 years. The part that is a problem was due to not being vented correctly, which I'm going to fix.
I'm going to get quotes and want to make sure everything is
spec'd. What is typically used now for roof sheathing? Is OSB
ok? is at as good or better than plywood? Oddly looking at Lowes
and HD, it doesn't look like they have sheathing in 1/2". Closest is
I guess maybe lumber yards have true 1/2"? Any code issues
anyone might be aware of that are involved?
