Can you use metal roofing as siding?

First, using metal roofing material as siding is a perfectly acceptable practice. The common galvanized corrugated metal roofing panels and also aluminum panels do need some special considerations for this shed application though. Also, stainless steel fasteners should be used rather than galvanized nails or screws.

What size nails shed siding?

Nail Length
Ideally, you should space the nails so that each one penetrates a stud; 8d nails, which are 2 1/2-inches long, are suitable for most siding materials. It isn't always possible to nail into studs, especially when you're installing shake siding.

What should I use for shed walls?

Use pressure treated 3/4 inch construction grade exterior plywood for the floor. It's solid, won't sag, and protects the substructure and is easy to sweep. On the shed walls use exterior rated 1/2 inch plywood for a waterproof finished look, and 3/4 inch CDX plywood on the roof for strength.

Do you have to replace house wrap when replacing siding?

There is no problem with applying a new layer of housewrap over the old. In fact, it's recommended. Aside from the likelihood that there have been advances in the housewrap membrane itself over the last 23 years, you can't be sure how long the existing housewrap was left exposed to the sun before siding was installed.

What can I use instead of Tyvek?

Tar Paper. Tar paper is a thick, heavy paper impregnated with tar. As long as it is not exposed to sun or wind, it does not deteriorate easily. As alternatives to Tyvek, heavier tar paper can be used for roofing and lighter tar paper as a housewrap.
