Screwing wood into a flat rubber roof?

Hi, I want to build a little railing on a flat rubber roof so I can attach some flowerpots to it to prevent them from blowing off.

Is there an easy, foolproof way to screw into the roof without causing a leak?

(I'm thinking of just screwing a 4x4 down and going from there.)

Not really. Any hole you make will be a potential leak. You are better off constructing a railing that sits on rubber pads and only attaches to the house. Once it is all connected, gravity will hold it down... the attachment to the house will ensure it wont collapse if someone leans on it.

I agree.... no holes in the roof. It doesn't take much to cause a leak that can't be found or stopped.
