Elastomeric Roof Coating?

Part of my house has a flat roof (approx 150 SF) covering part of a living area as well as a carport. We have had issues with the flat roof ponding water and sometimes leaking. We have patched where we can but another leak always seems to pop up down the line. The roof is the same type of material used in shingles but rolled out in 4' strips.

A friend recommended that I use a few coats of elastomeric roof coating to seal the roof and stop the leaks. Does anybody have any experience or advise in this matter?

Peel it all off a install EPDM. Bucket products only benefit the seller, not the buyer or user. After you read a supervisor's manual so you know how to do the EPDM, you might decide to hire a roofer.

You can cover that area with one sheet of epdm and it wont leak again.
You do need to know to install epdm though.
