    Is 90# rolled roofing any good to cover wood piles? I know others have used rolled roofing material, but it may be thicker.

    Honestly, the stuff is garbage. That is why it is the price it is.
    It may last a season or so, but it as it ages, it falls apart.
    Better than nothing I suppose, until you have to get rid of it.

    Thanks for the feedback. The more I research this on google, the more I see it's like a felt material and it sounds like it will not hold up or sheet water away.

    Most guys recommend the rubber roofing, it also comes on the same type roll.
    I think the 90# roofing will be brittle in the cold and very soft in the summer. It will get holes in it.

    It needs to be nailed to an underlayment - like plywood.

    It breaks real easy when it is freezing and gets rather soft in the sun in the Summer.
    Add some wind, weather, animals or kids and not a very longlife.

    It'll fall apart when you work it in the cold...go to plan B.
