Is it because of the weight of asphalt shingles in addition to the wood shake shingles to much for the 1x2 plank sheathing that is used for wood shake?
I have put in my report when I find this, the seller should check with their preferred insurance carrier to find out if the roof is insurable to cover my behind side. Is there a better way of addressing this?
