If you have the time, you might want to read these many pages of rubber roof questions and replies.
My personal opinion; if your roof is "soft" around the ladder it might be prudent to remove the membrane and check the decking condition, and inspect the entire roof for soft spots while you're up there. The actual membrane is time-consuming to lay, but IMO not difficult. DIY rubber (EPDM) roof repair.
