epdm and drip edge


Hello all , I have recently built a bedroom addition onto my house. I used epdm rubber roofing and i want to use drip edge instead of termination bars. So my question is how can i fasten the drip edge to the rubber without screwing it down or puncturing the top? I dont want to have to worry about leaks coming from the screws. Is there a glue that i can use for this ? Thx for any help.

Forget DE. You need commercial .032 metal. Must be primed, then self adhered cover tape (RM) goes on next.

First off, thx for your helpful reply. A few questions
1.Can I get this metal and tape at my local lumber store or home depot or is it special order?
2.Does it have a 90 angle that goes down the facia board so i can slide the guttering underneath?

Again thx for your help

Yes, you can buy the metal bent that way. Roofing supply house have it.
I don't know where to get the RM, primer, or the cleaner needed, other than a roofing supply house. Never looked into HD, Lowes, Hardware, or elsewhere. Sorry.
