roofing question


I have a patio area that is 24' by 12' and had old rolled roofing on it.Is not a huge pitch.What do you recommend replacing it with after the new 4 by 8 plywood sheets are down.Is very flat but a minimal slope.

roofing question


Is the rubberized membrain type better and longer lasting than the regular asphalt roll type?

The Epdm will in fact out live the roll type.

Epdm is fairly expensive.But IMO well worth it.

Metal is prettier than both in my opinion but will come at a premium.

I prefer TPO vs. EPDM is you are going the membrane route.

I would agree with TPO. Yes, extra $, but like everything else ya get what ya pay for.
