Mod. Bit over edpm rubber ??


Has anyone ever put a layer of self adhesive Mod. Bit. such as Liberty roofing over existing epdm rubber? Thinking of doing it in a small flat area @ end of addition roof to help eliminate ponding (maybe?) and buy some time before complete new epdm rubber is installed over tapered iso board. Wondering if the Liberty will adhere to the epdm? Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated.

how would that temporary eliminate ponding? you're just installing another material over existing? why not just do it right the first time? tear off get some taper iso and new roof?

Thanks for the reply, JWilliams 850. I agree the right way to do it is w/ tapered iso board and that's my plan , long term. As the attached photo hopefully shows, the current epdm is in good shape and in only ponds near the far end. I figured if I added a layer of mod. bit Liberty where it ponds it would raise the surface enough to eliminate the belly/depression in that 3" area and allow the water to carry over the end gravel cleat. No?

Thanks. That's just what I needed to know. Guess I gotta bite the bullet and do the whole job, tear off, new tapered iso and new epdm rubber. Ouch! Things are seldom easy.
