1x12 decking upgrades

 Notice the large gaps between the boards, although 1x12 is a good structural decking, it does not make a good subtrate for shingles. The nails in the shingles can fall in the gaps, leaving a nice hole for leaks. The boards can also twist and cup, popping the nails, again, a new entry point for water.

Preparation is key. We always clean right to the 1x12 so we can fasten into the trusses. Some of my competitors will leave the old felt or underlayments and fasten the new plywood without regard to position on the trusses

Ready for plywood

Resisto shingle underlayment is warrantied on plywood, but will have no warranty on 1x's
