Metal roof???


as I wrote previously:
not to correct anyone but the plywood doesn`t show in the pics,what you see is probably 1x8-10 decking with 1x2s filling the spaces,he definitely should have the entire roof resheathed over the 1xs,I also see poor spacing on the beams,and areas where the beams appear to be missing and broken,so you should be looking at that also in addition to the mold growth visible in some pics---

Yeah sounds like no plywood. And just go with having the whole roof resheathed.

thanks for the compliment--be sure not to remove the old sheathing,as that is a lot of your structural support with this old house,better to strengthen it by sheathingt over,then do any necessary repairs to framing from below-best of luck-use a good contractor,it sucks to use someone cheap,then have to redo it long before you should have to
