Garage floor rollout liner for wooden shed?

Just had a really nice wooden shed built. I will use it to store mowers and a tractor.

The floor is 3/4" plywood. I'd like to get a roll-out garage floormat to cover it, to keep water off of the wood and allow easy cleaning.

But is there a problem with this, I don't want to have condensation build up between the mat and the floor.

Thoughts? The floor is non-pressure treated. I could treat it with a wood protector if that would be a good idea.

A lot will depend on what's underneath your shed. If it has good ventilation you will probably be OK. If the shed is sitting on the ground moisture might get trapped under the mat and condense and wet the plywood. I'd go ahead and try the mat. Lift up a corner of it once in a while and see if there is any moisture problem. If there is you can just remove the mat.

Good thinking

Mine is built on an asphalt driveway, plenty of clearance and airspace underneath. It's probably at least a foot from the bottom of the plywood to the asphalt.
