Another consideration, if any solvents are used, the membrane will fail, I have replaced several where folks have rolled on a topcoat of sealer the was solvent based and the membrane just fell apart.
If you use the EPDM, only use the suggested glue, a water based product, and I only use the Dicor lap sealant for any seams and to seal around trim.
The EPDM rubber membrane is some great stuff if used and cared for properly, but the application of the wrong cleaners or other chemicals can ruin it quickly.
I'm not trying to scare anyone away from this product, just giving a heads-up before mistakes are made.
