    Why is EPDM rubber roofing considered particularly suitable for low pitched roofs? Is it the best option for such roofs?

    "A low pitched roof would be better with the sufficient tiles rather than rubber. Other than that felt roofing would be better."

    "It would fundamentally depend on how Low The pitch actually is so he is going to have to be more specific..
    Professionally speaking I would not recommend that system unless the roof is totally flat."

    "It is best suitable as the elastic and flexibility in the rubber can go on a low pitch roof"
