How do you build a timber flat roof?

Answer

To build a timber flat roof, you need tools such as the drill, glue brush, and a measuring tape. To start, fold an EPDM rubber membrane over a flat roof surface made from timber boards. Mate it to the stands and wood edges with bonding adhesive and then glue the prefabricated corners. Use tin snips to close off open ends and finally, complete the job by fixing gutter trims.
