Re: [7x10minilathe] Re: OT: Adhesive for polyethylene?
- FWIW. I built a 'roof' over where I park the car for a garage, 16x24. As I intended to build on another room over it the next year, I sloped it 1" over the 16', & covered it with 6mil black poly, & covered that with indoor/outdoor carpet. (green). That was 6 years ago; still planning the extra room, but one thing and another have kept that on hold. Still no leaks; I think I'm a fugitive from the law of averages.Mert----- Original Message -----From: roylowenthalSent: Sunday, August 31, 2008 9:55 PMSubject: [7x10minilathe] Re: OT: Adhesive for polyethylene?
What about using straps over it? If you strap it every few feet
along the length of the shop it should keep it from flapping around
without puncturing it. You could probably make straps from bag
material, cut & folded double.

enough by slicing it lengthwise then cutting to length. There will be
a lengthwise lap seam near the front of the roof.
