    "Hi Charles, you should look to install your rubber roof on a dry day that isn’t too cold for best results. For an EPDM rubber roof to be installed correctly, water-based deck adhesive and contact bonding adhesive need to be applied."

    "Hi Charles the warmer weather is better has the glue which is used to bond it to the boards doesn't go off in the colder weather"
