replacing sheathing

Posted by leslie_gardener (My Page) on

I have diagonal shiplap sheathing on my house.
I have some serious rot from the sill up to about 30 inches.
I am thinking of removing a strip about 30 inches by 25 to 30 feet long and replacing it with plywood.
Will this mix impact the integrity of the house at all?

Thank you

RE: replacing sheathing

There is nothing wrong about doing that, just make certain that you use the same thickness and that you fix the p water intrusion problem so that it does not happen again.
