I have a 30 by 50 flat roof Garage on a property that I inherited.
The garage was not taken care of very well and is very dilapidated. The roof had to be taken off which I did and as it sits it is plywood with tar paper on top.
I would like to just seal the tar paper or put something else down so that I just keep the rain out of the garage. I do not want to put a regular roof on there at this time because next year I’m going to build another garage. So I really just want to be able to keep the rain out until I can demolish it and build another one.
The problem that I had with the tar paper is that I could not seal the edges and the water worked its way back under there. Some of the tar paper has come up so I will have to lay some more down. The main problem is being able to seal where they overlap.
Any simple ideas? I wish there was something I could just mop over the plywood to seal it. And also I am working basically by myself. I have things that I’m working on in the garage that I do need to be sheltered until next year.
