Yes, you can overlay the existing plywood once the EPDM is removed. Just Glue and screw the new plywood onto the old plywood. YOU CANNOT USE THE OLD DECKING AT ALL. You must use new plywood. Doug

OK. Got the roof stripped. Why the heck is there a gap at the edge of the roof all the way down both sides? That's where the roofing/membrane failed and water got in. And ... why is a thin layer of (what looks like) fiberglass patch over that gap? Seems unfinished. Also seems like the source of lots of work for me.
