Recently, one of our clients had to replace their shingles for a third time after another severe hailstorm. Concerned that the repeated re-shingling had damaged their OSB roof sheathing, we forwarded the query to the APA (The Engineered Wood Association) for comment. Find out what they had to say!
A recent inspection on a family residence revealed that sheathing panel edges were telegraphing through the roofing shingles. Since the roof was properly ventilated and there was no moisture present, we conducted an inspection to see what was causing the problem.
If it’s time to replace your roof, cedar roof shingles are an attractive, but more expensive option than asphalt shingles. In fact, cedar roof shakes can be six or seven times the price of asphalt roofing. If you are considering a shift from cedar shingles to asphalt, there are a number of factors to consider.
