(or similar A building paper that envelops the exterior walls or roof frame prior to the cladding being fixed. Reduces air movement and helps avoid the risk of water ingress.) over the rafters before fixing the roofing boards.
Begin with the first row of boards 2″ (50mm) up from the bottom of the rafters. The first row will require a wedge packer between the roof A piece of sawn, or dressed lumber of greater width than thickness. Usually 19mm (3/4") to 38mm (1 1/2") thick and 75mm (3") or more wide. and the rafters. Refer to the plan for visual guidance.
Ensure that the first row of boards are straight, as it will be used to measure and mark for the subsequent rows. Use a string-line or chalk-line to achieve this.
If the roof boards do not run the length of the roof in one piece, then make sure that any join is over a Structural member of a roof that supports the roof load and runs from the ridge to the top of the side walls., and also that the joins are covered with a Covered with a protective coating of zinc. metal soaker. Also make sure all joins on subsequent rows are staggered, i.e. joins on any two consecutive boards do not line up.
