A tree recently fell on my house and nearly crashed completely through it. The sheathing for the roof was originally tongue-and-groove planking (it’s a 1950’s brick ranch with a typical sloping roof, in NC). The contractors want to replace this sheathing with plywood (1/2" CDX) because the tongue-and-groove planking is “expensive” and “hard to get”. But I was assured that it is “just as good.”
Is it really just as good?
Thank you in advance!
