I can't find anything on the Formica website that says it can't be used outside. It does say that it will not bend sharper then 8" and is more dent resistant then the metal alone. The reason I ask is that one of my suppliers has damaged/reject sheets at 20.00 each.

Otherwise it looks do-able.

As for how to deal with the seams, I am building a woody so I wanted to do just the roof with it. I could cover the seam with a wooden rib sealed and screwed down. Any thoughts? Unless the exterior exposure delaminates the metal to their backing I can't see what else could happen to it.
