    Hi all,

    We had a porch flat roof replaced with rubber yesterday and wanted to fetch opinions.

    I've never actually seen an EPDM roof layed before, and bearing in mind this was directly onto the concrete roof as advised.

    I've attached some pictures as I noticed pooling today. Also note the corners which are those nearest to the house.

    A) should there be any raised rubber, considering this was layed yesterday
    B) are the corners acceptable? I appreciate being layed into flat roof water will need somewhere to go.

    The reason for having the replacement was due to a small amount water making it's way inside, the last thing I want is a reoccurance.

    Thanks in advance

    This was done by a roofing company (sole trader), who has a lot of good reviews which was why we chose him

    If you look closely at the last pic you can just see his trusty steed grazing in the field.

    Unfortunately it looks like their reviews can't be trusted then :!:
    - seems to sum it up.
