    I have an old roof deck made of tongue and groove 2x12s. It's currently covered with tar & gravel and want to change to Asphalt shingles. Due to it's low pitch I planned to use standard 15lb tar paper with a 17" overlap, Another contractor mentioned that the expanding & contracting of the tongue & groove could rip the 15-lb paper. He says I should use 30-lb, or even better yet go over the whole roof with plywood 1st. What's your thoughts?
