Replacing roof

Hello everyone, I am in the process of replacing m roof on my 2001 shamrock. I noticed a few bubbles in the interior roof a few years ago and I dismissed it. I shouldn't have ... Now just a little less than half of the roof has been removed . It was a 1 1/2 inch foam with luan on each side of it. Does anyone know where to pick some of this foam up. . I was told lowes may have it but I haven't made it there yet. Also there a ton of smaller accessories that I need that aren't totally related to the roof project but am having a hard time locating the parts.. Any good websites?? Thanks for any help....

Lowes has a good assortment of block foam insulation. To get to 1-1/2 inches you will probably have to sandwich two sizes to make it up. Instead of Luan plywood I would suggest you replace it with 1/2 or 5/8 inch marine grade plywood. Will be a bit more expensive but far superior strength. What other sorts of stuff are you needing?

I'm sure most folks would love to see pictures of the roof apart, if you can take a few and post them.

Thank you, ill look into lowes... some items I need are wheel bearing covers, not the caps, but the decorative caps, handle to come in door, some little nickel and dime stuff that adds up...

Hopefully the picture up loaded... I was hoping for a quick replacement of a skylight and a vent fan...this is what I found.... so a little piece of advise... if you find ANYTHING that looks like a leak... get it fixed.....
