I need roofing recommendations for a 24’x32’ carport. It is very low sloped and almost flat with 5/8" plywood. I will be doing it myself. Have a rough idea from a previous roofing job on a part of my house. It seemed like it was a two ply system either torch down base sheet with self adhered cap sheet or self adhered bottom with torch down top with a 3" drip edge nailed down over the first ply.
Is one combo a preferred method over the other?
It seemed like they used an adhesive they called “brie patch”, probably a generic description, to add on top and underneath the drip edge.
Is this necessary for an added lock tight seal at the working edges?
I live in a very hot and sunny area, tropical with a good amount of rain so the intall needs to be done right. I am looking at a two ply self adhered system for $1200 but I need to find out if this will be comparable, in the sealing capabilities, as the torch down system for a low slope. These are the two types that I am looking at. I also noticed there’s quite a bit of talk on this forum about single ply too.
Could someone shed more light on these options? Thanks
