pacearrow roof replacement

I want to replace my rubber roof after the winter. The corners were the roof meets the side wall are rounded and in a few places lifting up. It feels like these are like 10 inch wide x 8 feet long peices of wood or curved plastic. Are these glued or screwed down? The trim peice that runs on the sidewalls from cap to cap are pop rivited to the side. I would imagine I would need to drill these out but then what use screws to reattach or a bigger pop rivit. If anyone has replaced a roof on a PA would love to find out more info.

Thanks Mike

What do you mean be "lifting up"? Are they just visibly higher in spots or are they pulling the membrane from beneath the trim and exposing areas of possible leakage? Is the roof membrane in bad condition? Torn or worn through in spots? Do you have, or have you had, serious leaks? Can you post pictures?

The reason for all the questions is because most folks repair (rather than replace) rubber/TPO/EPDM roofs in place with a liquid roof coating. There are several products on the market.

The curved peice is/has let go in places. It is lifting the rubber. I can push it down like 3/8 inch. I have never had a leak. Wish I knew how to post a picture.

Just found this on the web. The first pic looks like the curved peice and about the 5 post down shows the side trim peice with the rivits. dieselrvowners.com/forum/index.php?topic=21.0

I have actually looked at those pics. My only two things im not sure on is the curved piece that is poping up and the pop rivits. I actually think installing the rubber will be no problem.

Just make sure that if you do replace as per the link above, use SS or at least coated screws, not the black drywall ones shown.. and please, do NOT use standard Duck tape... it'll pop in less than a year.
