EPDM Roof Repairing Protrusion Leak
 
With an EPDM rubber roof, how does one repair a leak in a protrusion area? For example, when there is a leak around a propane water heater chimney's boot, or if the boot/flashing needs to be replaced?

thanks for any advice, this forum is great!

Foe an emergency temp repair you can caulk it with clear silicone, permanent repair has to be done by a roofer who does EPDM roofs . "do not use tar or tar like product no matter what."

What types of roofing materials (for low sloped roofs) can a homeowner maintain and repair themselves?
