MDF does not tolerate moisture – it will swell and turn into mush….exterior ply or OSB would be a better choice….Another way to go is to use pine or Douglas Fir as it is cheap (or any other cheap wood would work as being painted can give it enough protection from the elements) and when painted can be fairly tolerant of the moisture ….White Oak, Redwood or Cedar are typically the go to outdoor woods.
