Do I have to replace roof decking when replacing shingles on my home?

The city does not require roof sheathing to be replaced if it is still in good condition.  The 2018 International Residential Code (IRC) adopted by the City of Mansfield requires roof sheathing to meet Section R803 and Table R503.2.1.1(1). In addition Section R905 of the IRC requires asphalt shingles to be applied in accordance with the applicable provisions of the code and the manufacturer’s installation instructions.
