I am in the process of building a new home that has a small (7’ x 12’) 2nd floor balcony off of the master bedroom that is partially over the dining room below. The balcony has walls on three sides and will have railing on the open end where it has 10" vertical face that ties back into a shingled sloped roof below. I would like to have EPDM installed and then lay a floating cedar deck over the EPDM.
Should the EPDM run to the walls (not up them) and be flashed with aluminum and uncured rubber flashing.
Should the EPDM run up the walls with the inside corners folded and not cut.
I have two separate contractors each proposing one of the above. Neither has been able to give me very convincing reasons for their position.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
