I am looking for an economical, durable wood cover. My first choice has been two sheets of galvanized interlocking 3' roofing metal, overlapping in the center so it sticks out 6-8" on both sides of a 4' wide pile. However this material is up to about $1.50 a square foot ($50 for a 12' sheet) making it $100 to cover a 10' long woodpile properly. What else can I recommend to my customers besides 4x8 sheets of CDX plywood? Any favorites out there? I hate tarps - they leak and tear, and some people end up asking me why their wood has mildew on it (because they covered the whole pile!).

From contributor A:
Most of my piles just have two layers of low grade wood stickered on top. Good wind flow helps as much as anything.
