Ya...in 10ft of roof line the pitch only changes from 2/12 to 1/12. The length (39') of the roof rises 3/4" per ft.....whereas the width (14') is a 2/12 pitch......2" per ft.

Re: EPDM Roof With A Twist


Looks like the tarp managed to keep the roof dry.........I was somewhat concerned over the course of winter...lol.
I've decided to install the epdm asap...weather permitting. Is there a temp that is the most conducive for the install? Here's a drawing of the layout of the epdm and fascia detail.....will start at the ends and finish in the center. Seems I can't find any termination bars locally, so....I figure I I could sandwich the epdm between the 2x10 and 1x12 fascia?... with the same results. The epdm should be wrapped over the edge to seal it up properly, do not want any air or water getting underneath when the tiny home is moved. Still not sure whether to use any cover board at all, seems to be mixed opinions on that. Would the washers/screws be visible after the epdm is laid? Assuming they would telegraph through?

Your detail looks like it could be a water trap with the EDPM being sandwiched between the fascias............

Yeah....have a Plan B in the works....lol
Will reduce the size of the 2x4 nailer and increase the width of the bottom metal facia to 5"ish. Just so the custom drip edge isn't isn't too flimsy on the vertical.

Re: EPDM Roof With A Twist


That looks better, if you can, consider putting a capillary break along the bottom of the 1x or run the metal fascia all the way up.

I figured i would cut the backside bottom out of the 1x4...half the width of a table saw blade. Maybe 1"ish deep (high)....so one could stuff the metal fascia in after the fact. It will be tight in the cut....but still float. Less of a chance of 'buckling' when the home is moved......not that it would buckle...lol.
Caulk if necessary.....

Well...I'd probably cut the epdm flush with the edge of the fascia and simplify things.....but....since it's going to be moved down the highway at 50 mph+ I decided to seal the epdm a little better with some 'termination bars'.

Re: EPDM Roof With A Twist


Also...it enables me to get the epdm on the roof without any drip edge/ fascia detail. Get the roof sealed up and worry about the rest after the fact. Besides....it will look good when I'm done.....

Cut the first sheet to see how it would lay...about 15x6ft. As you can see there a few ridges in the epdm, not sure if that would broom out...lol. Due to the twist...that section of roof is a little over an inch out of square. This is the worst part of the roof though, will get better as I work towards the center of the building.

Looks good. It should broom out pretty decent, you may end up with a "worm" or two but it's no big deal

I forgot to mention that the piece of epdm was sitting in the sun for about an hour and was broomed a couple of times prior to pic....so it didn't look that good when i initially rolled it into place....
Going to start on the roof later today...is there a max time letting the epdm relax in the sun?

No. It can relax as long as you want to wait

Re: EPDM Roof With A Twist


Other than a nasty looking worm at the lower edge of the roof when we
started...it came out rather well.
Which by the way......rolled out.

Zero anomalies.....most excellent.

Although...have yet to glue the center piece

Thanks guys..

Hi...have one possible 'issue'....the epdm is 10' 1 1/2" wide, not 10' as I assumed..lol..which increases my lap distance a bit...lol. Around 7 3/4" instead of 6". Will be using 6" secure tape.

Should be OK....correct?

Thanks...

Re: EPDM Roof With A Twist


Interesting how the water runs relative to the changing pitch....over and or away from the seams heading to the 2 corners of the structure.
