Who here has done their own roof. Please chime in if "you" have done it yourself. What products did you use?

I do my roof by routinely pressure washing it. I use water only and let it air dry.

Are you talking about replacing the roof or coating the roof?

Replaced my EPDM roof with material supplied by Dicor. Had no leaks so no roof repair as in wood was needed. Did put luan over the existing plywood roof so would have better adhesion. Had 2 good helpers, it went about like you would expect. Remove old material and replace. No problem with ac and vents etc. Just do it.

Assuming we are talking the membrane ...

The biggest issue, after replacing rotten roof sheathing and structure is always roof "penetrations". If these are not done PERFECTLY, you have just started the cycle over again.

I am not a fan of EPDM and lap sealants. IMHO, they will all fail (leak). TPO uses heat "welded" seams. If done correctly the 2 pieces have become one.
