EPDM Rubber Roofs

EPDM flat roofing is a single ply rubber membrane cover that is made using a 100% cured synthetic rubber Ethylene, Propylene, Diene and Monomer. Unlike other materials, an EPDM roof does not suffer with cracks or splits caused by age. The EPDM roofing repels all moisture and "breathes" to allow vapours to escape which prevents blisters from occurring. Despite its resilience it is easily moulded to blend in with the contours and shapes of your roof. The benefits include... Superior Durability, offers resistance to ozone, UV radiation and high or low temperatures giving the membrane a life expectancy of up to 50 years.

Typical residential roofs can be covered with one single sheet, making the roof seamless so this eliminates any chances of leakage. EPDM requires no flame as the membrane is fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive. EPDM remains highly flexible even at low temperatures enabling year round installation. The membrane can elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements and installed correctly should be leak free for at least 50 years.
