Flat roof torch applied seam help

I have a flat roof on my home, it has the torch applied roll material, not very old and in good condition, est. 10 more years+, when bought it had the ends cemented, not torched like it should have been, I had them torched down, and the seams were torched to the "industry standard" of no more than a little bleed out and now in two places a spot on a seam has poped or let loose, they were hard to find, had to take a knife blade to find where, both times it did damage to the ceiling inside, the hot temp. from the Fla. sun then we get cold showers and the roofer said it was the expansion/contraction that can be one of the reasons this happens....what can be done to stop this? Can a little bead or line of roofing cement be applied to all the seams?

I had a roofer recommend the "elastomeric" roof coating...others say don't, can anyone that has experience give their opinion?
