Re-Roofing

Currently my roof has 3/8 sheathing. I want to re-shingle the roof in the near future and at that time will be able to change the sheathing. Should I overlay new sheathing or tear off the 3/8" sheathing and increase to 1/2" or better?

Cool

If your roof rafter system has no sags and looks sturdy, you should be able to add 1/2" over the 3/8" without removal.
Just remove and replace any 3/8" if it's rotted from water-damage (don't worry about discoloration as long as it's solid).
Good luck!
Mike

Hey, Mojo!
Things are little "breezy" (gusting up to 40 or so at times) here back on the western end of the Albemarle today.
Bright and sunny with a few scattered clouds now.
Can't wait for some of that Spring weather just around the corner.
How are things down there? You're probably getting some of the the same. See you later.
Mike
