    Doing the roof soon on the run area ,was gonna use p/t but I think I may use the metal roofing. Not up on the terms but what's the name of that roofing....metal or plastic ..the wavy type. Trying to see what's cheaper.....thanks

    We used plywood and overlaid a tin roof--you can check those out at homes or lowes. Search roofing panels.

    When checking prices of roof panels keep the width in mind. The standing seam roofing is wider than the corrugated type.

    Menards has a corrugated fiberglass panel 4x6 for 20$. Easy to lift, install, and hearty.
