I am a GC for 6 years now and have couple flip under my belt. I just recently get in to a roofing business. I have re-roof 2 house with 3 helper and I pretty know how to do everything. My problem is there is several houses that need to be redecking (in my opinion) because when i walking on it, I feel like it can sagging down. However, when i try to explain to the adjuster they always say no to full replacement of decking or even repair it. They told me that they wont replace a rook deck unless there is a hole and if i need to replace it that is between me and home owner.
My question is how can I fight back? I feel really bad to just install shingle on these decking and know for sure it will not nail down to OSB 100%. Beside, im living in Dallas, TX and code now require to have 5/8 sheathing for roof with 24" spacing and all the old sheathing is 1/2"
Any tip or sharing information from expert here is greatly appreciate.
