I'm thinking of using 28ga. galvanized 14 X 20 with 3/8 soldered seams, let it weather over the winter and paint it in the future. Now for my question: should I use felt or rosin paper over the plywood sheeting? Any comments, suggestions? I know rubber is probably what I should use, but I'm a tinner at heart! John
Use both felt and rosin paper.
