rubber roof on a deltec?


any thoughts on seam reduction?
My thoughts were to roll out the rubber 10' x 20' until the curve of the roof cause the rubber to kink and not lay flat. Cut at that point to lay flat and start a new run.
Has anyone ever put on rubber roofing, not strangulated?
do the vent boots and flashing need to be strangulated?
Thoughts on zip_Taping all the decking seams that meet @ the peak. My thought is that it would put less stress on the rubber. Zip-Tape being a brand name and is high density "Pipe tape like" 4" wide it's typically used on homes that do not require home wrap, tyvek. This stuff is tuffer than duct tape and is also rain resistant.
Thanks for any in-put/ and please ask questions.

Thanks Andy. Pretty nice looking homes. There will invariably be a lot of waste re standard roofing materials, but otherwise, I like the look of these. SPF would work well, but not look nearly as good as shakes.

Why the rubber?

If it were me i would use a more attractive roof system. The rubber will sit very flat, and as you mentioned have many seams. The rubber has no style, it is boring imo. I think a unique home like that warrants a unique roof system. I am not even a fan of the comp on that, id do a metal of some sort...SS or metal shingle.

+1

Why not steel. It is "greener" than rubber.

Rubber as in EPDM, or Modbit? White EPDM might not look bad, or black modbit run horizontally. Black EPDM would look like a garbage bag.

Either way, i would just cut the membrane at the 'peak' of each section, then run a piece down the seam (much like how the shingles were done in the link above). For the top you could make a cone and cover it with metal as extra protection.

How do you plan on attaching the membrane to the deck?

standing seam or PVC with the standing seam ribs welded on.

Copper would look great on one.

What a pain in the backside. The home is a rental property that was bought up a few years back. In the sell the owners had a bogus roofer come in and do a bang up job. there was lots of water damage and decking that needed to be torn off, 2x8's sistered, and we extended the roof over a covered porch on two sides.
Shazapple__epdm that was pulled off a warehouse, pressure washed...the stuff is jet black even after drying.
LOTS of waste in every way. Deltecs are not green.

what about venting at the peak. we drilled holes in every stud ___thats a lot of drilling__to vent from exterior walls to peak.. we're to the point of cutting the sections in the morning, and will be looking to frame up something like this(right) to set on top with louvers instead of doors. THOughts?
we're using a roll on adhesive.
