Will an uncovered OSB roof be okay for the winter?
I’m building a house in Northern Michigan currently that I was unable to roof before the snow came down. That was in December, so it’s been sitting for a month. There hasn’t been that much snow melt here and temperatures have mostly been below freezing. The roof has ice below so I can’t really scrape everything off to shingle it right now. Is there any danger of waiting until the major thaw and then scraping it all clean then? Do I risk wetting the OSB too much? Mold? Any other dangers? Also, how long should I let the wood dry before I attempt to roof it?
Thanks ahead of time.
