Roof sheathing, also known as roof decking, is a strong layer of wood boards that are fixed to your roof’s joists and trusses. We attach your new roof shingles to these rectangles or planks of wood. Roof sheathing is usually mode of either oriented strand board (OSB) or plywood (CDX). Both materials are made of wood, but OSB is more lightweight and costs slightly less. Plywood is more durable and is heavier. Most roofers these days prefer actual plywood.
Older homes will have plank sheathing such as shiplap or tongue and groove.
