EPDM membrane roof
We installed an EPDM elastomeric roof system over the front porch of this house in Carrollton. The system consist of a high density cover board that is mechanically attached to the existing wood deck. The rubber membrane is a product made by Firestone Building Products. It is 60 mil thick and makes for a durable roof especially on areas that do not have much slope. It is fully adhered to the substrate. The transitions to the wall are flashed in a way to prevent water from being able to get into the system. The edges at the gutters are terminated with a custom built metal flashing. These types of roofs offer about 20 years of service with minimal maintenance. Single ply roofs are available in black or white membranes.
