Default stiffening the roof

i wanna make my roof stiff and instead of spending a bunch of money on deadener i think i wanna add wood to my roof. now if i wanted to put 1/2inch birch between the cross bracing should i use some kind of adhesive? someone told me to use spray foam and then wedge 2x4's to hold the wood up and let it dry and the spray foam will hold it.

whos put wood on there roof in between the cross braces and how did u do it.thanks

I just did it a few weeks ago. You can look at my build log for some pictures but I had to redo it once cause I didn't use the right stuff. I used PL premium the first time and was able to pull the wood off the roof with little effort. I redid it with PL Premium 8x and I couldnt tear that shit off if I had too.
