On residential flat roofs I really like the newer systems that are available from GAF Liberty, Certainteed Flintlastic or ABC Roofing Supply Mulehide.
Thanks Oldog...forgot to mention the side walls extend approximately 2 feet above the roof and so a cut out for one drain pipe down the side ...that's the way they were built...most of the homes were built in the 40s or earlier...and usually rebuilt from the inside out at some time later.
So no stone...just wood framed construction...
Thanks for the reply ...
