Having roof replaced. Roofer wants to put new wood sheathing over existing sheathing which is 3/8. Some areas are spongy. Said code is now 5/8. Shouldn't the boards that need to be replaced be removed instead of being covered? They are trying to save me $$. Thanks.

We cover over homes with 3/8ths all the time. However if there is active rot going on, that should be removed because of mold issues.

I had 2 contractors tell me insurance should pay for new sheathing but insurance adjuster flat out told me no.
