spaced sheathing. Spaced sheathing is usually 1 x 4 or 1 x 6 softwood boards and shall not be less than 1 x 4 boards.
Solid sheathing is recommended for shakes and may be required in seismic regions or under treated shakes and shingles. Solid sheathing is used in areas with wind-driven snow. Please note that the only solid sheet

Note: Do not cover the entire deck with water proofing membrane. This will not allow shingles to breathe. See CSSB technical bulletin “Asphalt-Saturated Organic Felt”
