Hi, List. Is anyone familiar with a plywood product suitable for
decking (i.e., a roof) that is engineered to resemble beadboard?
I'm getting ready to build an old-fashioned porch (awning) over part of
a large patio. Rather than a finished ceiling, it will be open
underneath to expose the rafters, etc. I want to look at something
better than plywood, so I was looking at heavy tongue-and-groove
planking for the deck. (The top side of this would take the shingles.)
However, a builder mentioned a plywood product that resembles
I've been to a couple of lumberyards and neither had heard of this.
One showed me lightweight (3/4 inch) tongue-and-groove paneling which
looked OK for finish work, but not to carry the weight of a roof.
Anyone heard of something like this?
