    I have a huge amount of Toughtek material left over from a failed business idea [​IMG] so I was wondering since its waterproof and thick....could I use it for my roofing felt...or just roofing?? also thought about using it on the floor of the coop with wood chips on top because its non skid?? I am totally new at this and on a fixed income so I am trying to cut cost on my coop.

    you should try selling the fabric on Ebay. I bet lots of people would be interested in it for coop shade. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Ok i did a search to find out what Toughtek material is and my suggestion is use it to line the inside walls of your coop as it would be waterproof and easy to spray down and tough and you could use it as 'coop shad' a shade cover area for your chickens in their run. I'm not sure how long it would hold up on the floor and and it might start breaking down and be dangerous with chickens scratching on it. I don't think it would hold up long as a roof but it's already paid for so maybe. Good Luck [​IMG]
