Yeah. A piece that big would be hard to manage. And mistakes could be very costly!
But that suggests to me that the the manufacturers may well intend it to be used for large jobs, possibly including a complete roof recover.

Purely cosmetic, you don't have to do anything with it.


While the white is cosmetic, it keeps the UV off the black rubber that would otherwise break it down very quickly.
So it is important to keep something over the black part.

Having used the 4 foot wide EternaBond I was surprised that it was not too difficult to apply.

We recoated ours 4 years ago and it is just fine. I agree with others that this is your best and easiest option. Probably the least expensive also. Chuck

I retired from commercial building management. There are millions of commercial roofs using the same EPDM roofing that RVs are using. The white layer is purely cosmetic.
