Gluing Roof Sheathing????


I'm up in my attic doing work, adding insulation. I read a while back, after Hurricane Ivan 2004, that many homes were lost because their roofs(sheathing) came off. If you can keep it on, you can keep your home from becoming a total loss.
Has anyone here retrofited their roof sheathing, by gluing it down, while it is in place? Any tips?
Thanks,
tom

You might look into the adhesive that is being used to attach sheetrock to trusses in new manufactured housing. They put the trusses on top of the sheetrock and squirt an expanding foam adhesive along the sids of the truss bottom chord and this forms a "fillet joint" of sorts on either side and is said to be stronger than regular screwed in place drywall due to the large glued area.
