30# felt paper for ply?
 
Hey folks,
I know this is probably a stupid question, but I have a bunch of 30# felt paper left over from an old project. can I use this as a "ply" for a built up roof?
Thanks.

Well, you can do anything you want but felt and glass-ply are two totally different animals.

is felt usually used as a base sheet?

I've seen it done, but never ever read a specification by a manufacturer or trade association saying you should do it.

Wait a minute... Hot tar do it yourself? Seriously reconsider that thought process, there are better DIY options for low slope roofing.
