This home was built in 1953. I purchased it in 1999. I am getting ready to have the existing three layers of shingles torn off and a fresh new roof put on
I am also having a central air system put in, and I ripped up a 5x5 ft pad where the unit will sit. When I got all three layers off, I was surprised to see that underneath there is not solid plywood but slatted like 1x4in planks! I can see right through into my attic :shock: And the planks don’t seem very strong, like I could put my foot right through them. So…
What are the advantages/disadvantages of having this type of roof? Could I, should I have the roofers slap new plywood over the planks?
