Flat Roof Covering


My customer wants to put 2x6 T&G over this pergola we put up, to make it a solid roof and match another pergola there. The other one has a grey rolled roofing on it, but it isn't seen from above and this one is. What's a good sheet or membrane we can use besides the rolled roofing?

Re: Flat Roof Covering


Can you push them to translucent panels? Shame to hide that nice work

Re: Flat Roof Covering


No panels Tom this is a very nice craftsman style house and that would be almost sacrilege.

I've been looking in to edpm but can't find any color options other than black, does it come in diff colors? This roof is seen from the second story and should look nice.

Re: Flat Roof Covering


no. you put iso board. Tpo may be a better option but how are you going to terminate it around the edges? if you lay tongue and grove, top with iso or blackboard, that doesn't leave you much to cling onto around the edges. Definitely, couldn't put any termination bar... edge metal would prob look retarded. Id go with a peel and stick myself. Im going to have to look at the picture again..

Re: Flat Roof Covering

Re: Flat Roof Covering


*If I get the job*, I've decided to use a peel n stick with the recommended underlayment. Yes T&G over the existing latticework. I'd do a copper drip edge all around the edges. I don't normally do this type of work.
