Hi folks, excellent forum here. I am in a new house and new a new roof! Knew this coming in but had no idea the number of options/considerations for ways to do it. I am interested in a DIY operation.
Roof area with garage and porch is about 2700 sq ft. Pitch is mostly 1.5:12 with a small 1:12 area. I am on a 100% wooded lot. Tons of oaks and a couple pines dropping leaves incessantly over my roof. In the fall I was up there at least once a week blowing leaves.
My goal is a long lasting roof - hope to be here for a long time.
I have done a lot of reading and research and am leaning to either EPDM or a self adhering Mod Bit like GAF Liberty or Mule Hide . Given the tree’d nature of our lot, I have some concerns with single ply for the long run.
Thanks for any considerations!
