Yes the whole roof. It's hurricane code. I&W over the whole thing or 4" tape on all seams with 2 layers of 30lb felt nailed with cap nails on 6" x 6" gird or something insane like that. ( I never do that way so I forget)

I just wonder why we have mold that grows on the back side of OSB sheathing on our walls. If it could breathe well, that would not happen as much as it does.
We have much less trouble with "buildrite" or buffalo board.

I worded it wrong saying that OSB does NOT breathe which would be incorrect. It is actually very poor at "breathing".

I'm sure you could put together a very good explanation. I don't care to spend a whole lot of time on it, but would love to read it.
