flat roof help
Hi I have a flat roof that is for a back porch. it not a complete flat roof has a small slope to it. i know i need to replace some wood and some type of roofing. I have 600.00 to do the work it is just under 400sq ft. any tips or ideas on what i could use. could i just use shingles or is it better to go with a roll roofing system or a paneling type system.

You can't put shingles on a flat roof.

For that size with hardly any slope, I would probably recommend a rubber roof. It goes down with a rubber cement, and if you do your research you can probably handle it. We are building a new house now that has several areas of roof that are almost flat. They will all get epdm rubber and have floating decks installed over that.

Yep, for that tight a budget look at a 60mil epdm. A little research and planning and it is fairly DIY friendly.
