    I can't speak for that but right now I've got a few stacks covered with old laminate doors I found at the trash. Obviously not as durable but it keeps the wood dry. They've been on there a few months and they're still holding up okay

    Talk to some construction crews or better yet, roofing crews. When they replace, the stuff is still good for covering firewood. I lucked out once and simply asked and got a big square of new stuff free.

    I lucked out and found a mess of it on craigslist. I don't know where the guy got it but he had 10x14, 12x18, and such sized pieces. Some of it has some kind of fiber reinforcement in it, I mean it's really heavy duty stuff, perfect.

    I cut strips a couple inches wider than a row of split wood and just roll it out on top, throw some block or locust rounds on top and that's it. I cut a few pieces 2 rows wide too.

    I tried all the rest, and the rubber roofing is the BEST!
