So I’m not totally sure where to ask this, if this is even the right website to be doing so, but here goes anyways.
I’m building a firewood shelter to keep it out of the rain and snow. It’s nothing special, so the ‘roof’ is just a single sheet of plywood on a slant. I read somewhere to pick up some ‘liquid roofing’ which you just coat it and it makes it waterproof, have no idea what it is or where to buy it so I’m thinking of just shingling the thing.
My question is this, if the top side is shingled can I leave the bottom side of the plywood bare? it will be completely open because it has no walls or anything, just boards going across to keep the firewood from falling out. It’s 5/8” plywood, obviously the only rain that will be hitting underneath would be from very high wind sideways rain, but I live in Southern Ontario, so it’s not like we constantly get hurricane weather.
p.s. Do I need to use roofing felt?
