Help!!!


I started taking off my old shingles...found pylwood shealthing which butts up to what looks like old thick barn boards, gaps between them. How do I fix these gaps? I don't want to have to replace the whole roof ($$$$) just trying to replace an area in which the shingles have weathered.

The only way to fix the gaps "space between the boards" is to cover them with a lite weight plywood.
You can install shingles with the gaps there, it's a pita and less quality of a method than re-sheathing over it, but it works if done properly.

Thx for the reply. I am going to do that on the upper level.
To fix the gap between the exsisting plywood and new, I am going to put flat stock aluminium where the pitch changes.... Lay as a shingle layer, then cover with the next layer of shingles....sandwich style.....so water runs onto the next level not under it.
P.S. I'm a woman so you might have a full time job answering questions in the future and as I try new projects...lol

Sounds like a good plan to me.
