Blog > DIY attempt at laying new rubber roof

The current roof is a flat felt roof but i’m wanting to replace this for a new EPDM rubber roof and wondered how hard this is to do myself? It’s only a small roof so the workload shouldn’t be a problem.

A few concerns i have are

1. The actual laying of the new boards on the roof joists, do i leave gaps around the four sides of each board to allow for expansion?

2. Cutting the boards to length, do the boards have to “meet” on a joist?

I have seen videos of the process of laying the EPDM which looks straight forward enough but unsure about the trims etc?

Any help/advice very much appreciated

Cheers Don
