Replacing Low Pitch Rolled Roof material


Ok, On my porch it looks like the current rolled roofing is very near the end of it's life expectancy, so I am wondering what options I have to replace it? I would probably want to use some of the Self Adhesive rolled roofing material, but was wondering what kind I should look at.

Also, Do I need to remove the old one, or can I install the new one right over it?

And is there anything special to note when installing it?

Thanks

Replacing Low Pitch Rolled Roof material


Certainteed flintlastic SA. Excellent system. Do not skimp, do the full 3-ply system.
Of all types of roofing, I'd say SA's are probably the most DIY friendly system out there. Common sense and follow directions and you should get a fine job out of it.

Yes, you should remove the old roofing and start with a clean slate. One nice thing about flintlastic is it starts with a nailed base so you don't have to worry about a new surface to adhere to because it is not adhered. Also they have a decent color selection.
