Don't worry about it. Any seasoned roofer or Contractor can see bad spots without taking the bottom 3 feet of I&W off.

Yeah - also, this is a redo. They had it all off a month ago.

Sure, you MAY be able to notice a problem. Not all homes have plywood. It's pretty lazy to not pull it ALL off and check ALL of the sheathing.

i don't see how in the world you guys pull IW off. that stuff is just glued down. i'd much rather get the cat claw and pull the sheathing that it's on & replace regardless. if you roof as a business i would think you would go this way as well. the labor costs of pealing that crap up have to be more than the cost of some 7/16osb or even cdx {which oddly is 2x the cost of osb in my area now}

We run more into felt than a lot of IWS. We just take it all off when we do run into it.

You cannot remove I&W. The only way is to remove the sheathing, but most people will not pay for the extra labor and material. Heck, most insurance companies won't even pay for it on a storm claim. Eventually they will have to with the roofs up here. I've seen 3 layers of I&W on houses that are only 15 years old. Each new roof from storm damage, the contractor just adds another layer.
