New Roof


We need to have a new roof and I want to install new decking with Tech Shield. My question is the rafters are on 24" centers w/3/8" CDX. Should we go with 1/2" or 5/8" CDX decking. Could the additional weight be a problem ?

New Roof


Read the label on the plywood, compare to table load ratings after finding material loads: http://www.trioforest.com/pdf/Load-Span_Tables.pdf
Be safe, Gary
