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.

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.

Hello,
I know this is a very old thread, but I'm wondering how the beadboard has held up to heat being attached directly to the porch roof sheathing.

On my screen porch project, I'm considering applying 3/8" beadboard on top of the rafters, then 1/2" plywood followed by tar paper and shingles. I'm just not sure if the summer NC heat coming through the rough will damage the beadboard?

Has anyone done this?
