Default Roofing advise for a non roofer ....

I am in the process of building a new house and they put on the roof shething on the trusses the day before it decided to rain for the next week . They gave it a day to dry and put down the peel and stick today .
I asked the contractor if I need to be worried about the wood getting wet for a week straight and he said that the wood is engineered for inclement weather .
it is norbord cdx 3/4 exposure 1 . So is that alright ? Do I need to be concerned about it?

Although you will get many replies telling you to year the house down and you are doomed with black mold and the plauge... you will be fine. The sheathing is designed to be exposed to weather for a time and you still have air circulating underneath your continue the drying process. Congratulations on the new house

Incredibly coincidental.
I am in the exact same position and was wondering this very thing yesterday.

If the peel n stick sticks, it's dry enough.
