  1. Probed the sheathing, but nothing appears to be rotten -- just surface flaking of the OSB on the underside of the eaves and the flaking appears superficial. Edges looked good. Current asphalt composition shingle covering is new. Could the flaking be the result of moisture intrusion that occurred before the new covering was installed? Or is the flaking characteristic of early generation OSB? And is replacement of the sheathing really necessary? (OSB looks structurally sound.)
  2. Inspected a 1985 home today with flaky OSB roof sheathing under the eaves. The sheathing has been painted/stained, but the flaking is the OSB itself, not the paint/stain. Roof covering is new and the OSB looks good in the attic. Any ideas how to call this?
