I am going to put ice and water shield on the lower part of the steeper roof....do i put the rubber roof under that or on top of it???

Rubber Roof How To


I would remove at least the bottom 3 rows of shingles. Run the membrane up and shingle the 3 rows back in.

Rubber Roof How To


I'm not sure what corn board is but I'm guessing Fiberboard. For tie-in you will need to remove how ever many rows of shingle to get the membrane up the sloped roof around 12", glue it directly to the plywood of the slope roof, don't forget to RTS, the transition change.

Then re shingle and felt as needed to bring the leading edge of the shingles down to about 8" above the slow slope roof deck. No ice and water shield needed just felt if needed.

RTS is reinforced termination strip. It goes down to the deck/wall when ever there is an angle change in EPDM. It keeps it from bridging later on in life.
