My landlord (a good guy) is planning to replace my nice old deck, with its asphalt flooring--which I use almost every day for sitting, gardening, and doing wood-working--with rubber decking materials, the popular EPDM, I assume. Can this rubber roofing material be flooring as well by itself? The contractor is going to bring some "pads" with it--but I don't want to move around pads every time I put a chair or table on the roof. Can't find a clear answer on the Web whether EPDM rubber roofing is okay as deck flooring (I wonder about smell as well). txs.
