My house is very old and has old wood can I go right over top with the shingles?


The answer is yes you can! Only if the spaces though between the wood decking is no more than a 1/8th apart.It is advised the wood decking be well secured with modern fasteners. It is best to use synthetic underlay on all installations unless over 9/12 pitch.It is highly advised to install minimal adequate 3/8 sheathing  substrate with pneumatic fasteners to adhere asphalt shingles rather than smooth shank hand nail application.Proper adjustment and extra high wind application values are added in for extra assurance during high wind speed storms.
