    I’d suggest using OSB (oriented snratd board) instead of plywood. It’s stronger, costs less per sheet, and there is no directional grain as in plywood to consider when spanning rafters. OSB has a slick side and a textured side. The textured side can go up to give you additional grip and footing. Use ply-clips around the top edges in-between each rafter to give you needed expansion. If you don’t have a pneumatic decking stapler, use 8d box nails to fasten. Apply felt over the decking before you lay the new shingles. Start at the bottom, as you do with the decking, and overlap a few inches each time. Fasten felt with cap nails. Use 1 galvanized roofing nails and follow the instructions on the packaging. Good luck.

      Dear Mr. OSB,

      Thanks for your comments and we agree with your approach completely. At Stonebrook we use the highest quality materials in all our operations, and balance those decisions with cost effectiveness as well for the myriad of project scopes we encounter.

      OSB is a great product for many reasons. OSB does not have a continuous grain in it like a natural wood product, therefore OSB has a greater overall strength. This can be identified by observing the alignment of the surface wood chips. OSB panels have no internal gaps or voids like plywood materials, and provide more water-resistance. The OSB product has similar application properties to it like plywood, but it is more uniform and costs less. When tested to failure, OSB has a greater load bearing capacity than milled wood panels. It has replaced plywood in most all environments, especially in structural panel applications. .

      Some manufacturers may treat the wood chips in OSB with various borate compounds which are toxic to termites, wood boring beetles, as well as abating mold and fungus.

      We appreciate all comments and encourage everyone visit our Forum with your comments in the future. You will find this under the Resources tab in on each city page in the website.

      Thanks again,
