EPDM rubber roofing membrane is so popular because it is proven to last for up to 50 years with little maintenance. Resistant to extreme temperature, weathering and ultra violet radiation. 

EPDM is one of five types of single ply roofing membrane available. It is becoming increasingly popular for new build and refurbishment on commercial and residential properties. Performance requirements and cost are just two of the criteria used by building contractors when deciding which roofing membrane best fits the design.

Rubber roofing membranes have been used on a number of different types of applications such as flat garage roofs, garden buildings, flat roof house extensions, low slopping roofs and dormer roofs. Contractors and roofing consultants use EPDM rubber roofing membrane because its flexibility allows for easy installation and readily moulds into the different shapes and contours of a roof.

Why invest in EPDM rubber roofing membrane? Flat roof benefits from an EPDM rubber roofing membrane also known as single ply membrane

  • light weight
  • one sheet installation
  • flexible therefore withstands the expected movement of a building
  • high tensile strength
  • durable and resistant to ultra violet rays
  • easy to repair
  • low maintenance
  • weather resistant so ideal for hot of cold climate roofing
  • EPDM is compatible with bitumen
  • resistant to wind damage

According to the Guide to Flat Roofing, all roofs, including insulation and membrane, should be constructed to resist wind forces.

A flat or low slopping roof has to withstand full exposure to varied weather conditions, howling winds and torrential downpours. EPDM membrane has more than 40 years of use in the roofing industry and has with held its durability without going brittle and cracking.

EPDM rubber roofing membrane can be welded together to form a continuous sheet over the roofs surface. This type of roofing creates a waterproof seal at all seams and connection points. It is a low maintenance system which eliminates leakage through its resistance to expansion and contraction.

Rubber roofing membrane is easy to use and install on site using a heat splicing technique or, larger made to measure sheets can be prefabricated in our factory and laid directly onto the roof. The cold adhered and mechanically attached flat roofing system is certified and fulfil the requirements of the British Board of Agreement, BBA certificate No 92/2799.
