You haven't mentioned the age of the roof installed, how much vertical flashing and or counter flashing is installed along the Cedar Wall, nor have you mentioned how much vertical rubber is exposed to the elements at the base of the Cedar Wall. IF there is good vertical rubber exposed under the cedar wall at the base, and is in good condition then possibly you can attach to it and then counter flash it over the top with proper flashing and reglet that can be installed above and into the cedar wall and properly sealed. IF no flashing is installed, then the roof was improperly constructed and the best way to solve your problem is to have the entire roof removed, retaper it with the proper insulation, reroof it and attach to the cedar wall with proper flashing and counter flashing. Consult any good rubber roofing manufacturer's rep and they will recommend the proper detailed wall flashing for you given these special conditions.
