The sheet EPDM is very common and reasonable IMHO. Yes it is glued down. I believe the newest stuff is similar to contact cement. You apply the glue, let it set and lay the sheet out and roll it down. I see a couple of ways to do it. Lay the sheet down, centering it in place. then fold half back, apply adhesive and lay the material down. Fold the other half back and repeat. Or apply glue to the entire roof, and apply in one big piece. I can see pluses and minuses to both options. Go to the dicor web site and nose around. I seem to remember seeing a video there showing how to properly install the material.

It is too bad you already have damage to the wood underneath the "rubber" membrane. If your roof was solid, you could use the liquid EPDM, and just roll on a brand new roof!

I agree, but it is what it is. Just bought the TT and did not catch the soft spots. So, will do the best we can.

I am concerned about having to have a bare wood deck to attach the new rubber sheet. Getting the old glue off might be a real bear I am fearing..

Any experience there?

if you can't get the old rubber and glue off you could just replace all the wood at that time which will give you a chance to look over the whole rig.
Not sure what your looking to spend but if the wood is already rotted I would replace a larger area to get it all at once.

I have never done a rubber roof but I recall my roof is only glued at the edges because it seems to have stretched areas from the day I got it so maybe your's isnt glued all the way down either.

Orlando isnt far - I am in Saint CLoud and Work / Office is off of Sand Lake and Orange Blossom Trail
