      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Rubber Roof help?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I am about to install my rubber roof and have heard a couple ways to do it. So I would like to ask some of your opinions on it.

#1 glue the rubber roof and let the rubber run down the side of the walls with termination strips. Then run the siding up so the actual rubber would be behind the siding.

Question on this method. Why would anyone want the water to shed behind the siding?

#2 Put drip cap around the edge of the roof and glue the rubber roof to the top of the drip cap.

Question : Would the glue hold up to driving/wind conditions and not just peel off at high rates of speed?

#3 Here is an idea I've came up with. Let the rubber roof roll down the edge and then bring the siding to the top and place the drip cap on. then cut strips of rubber and glue the strips to the top of the drip cap and existing rubber to make a seam.

I would really appreciate any help with this!

I ran my siding up to about 2" below the top of the wall. The rubber roof overlaps the siding by around 3", which is then sealed off with a strip of floor threashold. The water rolls off the threashold and over the siding. 2 yrs. and 2500 miles later, there have been no issues.

I hear ya. I debated this problem for some time. Here are the options that I boiled it down to. The first picture sounds like your #3. Other option uses the termination bar like your #1 but has it out over the siding (not sure how well this would work).

I did the same as in lightningbg's artwork, with the exception being I used a 'J' channel as my termination strip (from Menards). It acts as a gutter so I don't have water dripping all around the house, only at the corners. And definitely DO glue your rubber roofing down securely! I have seen houses on the highway, that the roofing is so stretched out, they look like they have a big black balloon tied to the house!!

Sounds like they didn't glue the rubber membrane down correctly, or the glue didn't stick. Not good to have it loose like that.

Be great if you could have got some pictures of it. laugh

I've worked for three different flat roofing companys, and what I'd do is glue the rubber completely down (depending on the type of glue you use, you might just have to glue the rubber or both surfaces) make sure you let the glue set up, then run the rubber over the egde. Cut the rubber so your going to be short of the face of your drip edge. Then we make custom metal (whatever color) with about 2 and half inches on the roof. Then screw the metal down through the metal into the rubber. Then I use a primer and prime the metal and onto the rubber, and we have a 5" flashing strip and apply (flash in the metal to the rubber) and use a seam roller and roll all the 5".

Alright I know you probally don't have access to all this but if you have any ?'s I'd be more than happy to help you out.

    • Six of us shot 10 on public land Saturday near Worthington.  Good day until the wind really kicked up at the end of the day.
    • I have trail camp pics of some yearlings sparring.
    • yea but dave we will never really know now will we!!!!!!!! woulda shoulda......... its  W for da good guys and  L fer dem other ones!!!!!!!!!
    • Parise Update:    Zach Parise, battling an undisclosed injury, was in a red jersey and skating on a line with Joel Eriksson Ekand Eric Staal. The goal for the past several days was for him to make his season debut this weekend. But early in practice, Parise left the ice and did not return. "I talked briefly with Chuck, but he said it was a setback. I don't know how much of a setback or anything," Boudreau said. "I know I talked to him before practice and he felt great. That's why he was in a red color and was ready to go. The next thing I know, somebody told me he went off. I don't know why he went off. Obviously, something didn't feel right."   My feelings is that he needs to be put on the LTIL and get 100%.
    • 4 at the most, maybe only 2 if they don't beat the Ravens....
    • looks like we will have a 5 game winning streak
    • Isn't the bye week like 3 weeks away? Week 9?
    • I'd just expect a 72 inch moose.  No need for that many people who have no idea what they're doing. 
    • Highly doubtful that the Vikings pull off this win if Rogers stays healthy. They will probably have to put up more than 23 points against most teams. 
    • Scrapes are appearing in numbers now.  I've seen bucks with does a few times in the past week and not even the young, dumb bucks are sniffing around yet.  Things should definitely change in the next week...
