Small Flat Roof Replacement

Small roof measures about 2 ft. by 16 ft. Located above a garage overhead door. Water is getting through and slight damage is visible underneath. I thought of rebuilding with a 1:12 slope. What would be the best material to put on top and keep it dry?

Re: Small Flat Roof Replacement

Maybe you can get a scrap of EPDM from a roofing company. A small slope would certainly help.
