Flat roof, best material and process to use.


I have a 17 year old rolled roof on a 1 and 12 pitch roof. I would like to replace it with the longest lasting roofing material and process. What would that be? i live in southern California.

He said longest lasting, not shortest. I would use a BUR. If you dont know what that is, go to Johns Manville's website. They have some pretty good details.

You really think the DIY're will have a kettle?

I think the cold applied, a SBS, or EPDm will last about the same.
