Beadboard roofing material


Wondering if it is acceptable to use 3/4" beadboad plywood on my porch roof so that I get the beadboard look underneath, but have exposed beams. I would put shingles on top of the 3/4" beadboard plywood. Is this something that people do? Is the 3/4" beadboard plywood durable enough for roofing applications? Thanks.

you can do that,but you need too probably hand nail the roofing on with 3/4'' roofers,the smallest gun nail i believe is 1'' and will penetrate through the beadboard sheathing

What I might do is cover the 3/4" beadboard ply with 1/4" or 11/32" OSB and then use 1" or 7/8" roofing nails. Thoughts?

got an even better idea...less expensive. Use 1/4" beadboard ply first and cover that with 3/4" OSB. Save some money and get the same effect.

plywood, not osb. any leaks, and the osb may be toast; at best, it will swell and get soft.

place down your boards then sheet the roof with plywood, chalk your trusses so you dont nail through into your fancy beadboard . depending on anything less then a 4-12 youll need to use ice and water underlay. but thats your discretion.
