Slopped shed roofing material
 
I have a 5 foot x 6 foot shed with 15 degree slope. I used 3/4 plywood then 30 lb felt and aluminum drip edge. Whats a good long lasting material to put over 30 lb felt? Thanks

Galvanized metal, or galvalume. Don't use aluminum unless the felt was installed with aluminum nails though.

Any type of roll roofing available?

Not that I ever heard of. There is a prodcut called roll roofing that goes on without felt and is good for a year or two, but my only experiences with it is removing and replacing it, and often the decking, with roof materials, either metal, or shingles.

There is the self adhered modified I guess you could call them rolled roofing, but rolled roofing to us is the 90# junk that lasts two years like Tinner said. I think you can do the self adhered over normal felt but you would have to research that. I know they make a nail able base sheet and a self adhered base sheet, we have used both, never just over felt though.

nailed base, self-adhered mid-ply (optional), then self-adhered capsheet. DIY friendly

Right, but I don't know for sure that you could use felt. We've always used what ever manufactures nail base. I guess you could alway nail that base sheet over the felt and then the self adhered cap. Be a good roof for a shed!

I agree. The base wouldn't know if you were nailing over felt or bare plywood. Just make sure you use the base to adhere to.
