Any help is more than appreciated.
I am putting new roll roofing on an old out building. When tearing the old off, I noticed that the roof was wood slats not plywood sheeting. Some of these planks were rotten, and I have already torn these up-which leads to my QUESTION:
If I want to put plywood sheeting down, can I do so over the planks that are left, or should I tear all of the previous roof up and then place the sheeting down.

If it makes a difference, there weren't that many rotten planks, so the holes that exist are not that large and the planks that remain seem to be sturdy.

Thanks in advance.
