I am going to be putting a new roof on my cabin and need some advice. It is a multi room, added on addition cabin that is not heated all year. The roof is not close to being flat, but the snow melt does dam up as there is no heat. Not sure what the best option to go with is. If you especially have any advice as to why NOT to use rubber, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks a million in advance.

Rubber has its good and bad points, like all other roof forms.

Covering the area with an "ice&water" type membrane, then shingling, might be an option, if it's not to low of a pitch for that.

Manufacturers require a 2-3in. minimum slope for their shingles, depending on the style used.

Rubber is atractive because it's available in wide/long sheets. But it still requires specific installation procedures and accessories for it to work correctly. The main problem I've seen with rubber is the seams tending to open up after a period of time. But I have no way of knowing if this was due to workmanship, or just something that happens with the system.

A roof CAN be your friend
