    Hi,

    After several eye-watering quotes, I'm coming round to reroofing my garage myself. It's approx 3m x 5m flat roof and I'm either looking at either EPDM or GRP. One concern is the joists, a few need replacing which is fine, but they're at 1400mm centres.
    Will I need to add more joists for either of these roofing types? The roof won't see any footfall.

    Ta!

    thats rather large centres, even without foot fall it should be at least half that imo
