You can read about the IKO low slop material >click here<, it's designed for low slope application, not flat, so make sure your addition is at least a 1/12 pitch.

I would rate it as a fair product.

The torch type would be superior (not a DIY job), especially since that would typically require a base sheet (aka you'd have two layers). They do get installed in cold weather, but it is not recommended and you don't get a quality job. The instructions recommend +10 degrees centigrade, so with temps below that the adhesive wouldn't work well.

Thanks. What kind of base layer would go under a torch rubber roof?

The self adhered systems come with base & cap sheets also and are far less dangerous being there's no open flame to contend with.

In low temps, you can use a Wagner heat gun, for paint removal, to warm the material and other surfaces. It could possibly, with practice, be used to weld the seams and joints too.

I would recomend the nailable base, 2 inter-ply sheets, then the cap sheet. Read the instructions so the seams are all staggered and not on top of each other building ridges in the roof!
