How do I stop water from getting under the floor of my plastic Lifetime shed.


How do I stop water from getting under my plastic shed? I have tried to seal (caulk) around the outside where the plastic floor sits on the sub-floor (which is 3/4 inch plywood on 2 x 6's and is slightly larger than the the shed floor). No water gets into the interior of the shed. But, even after a small rain, water accumulates on the plywood sub-floor under the shed plastic floor and I know it will eventually rot.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

guess i'd be raising it off the ground to provide more airflow under it 1st,,, roofing cement's better than caulk in this instance,,, could it be the ply's porous & wicking wtr inside ?

you might try some flashing, too.

Thanks for the reply. Perhaps the glue will work.

My apologies - the reference was to roofing cement.
