Waterproofing membranes or strips of EPDM rubber used on cladding, facades and for isolating joints around external window frames and doors of buildings, both commercial and residential. The rubber membrane works by keeping rainwater, damp and moisture transferred by wind out of buildings thereby preventing structural damage caused by water. At Russetts Development we are proud to supply premium grade waterproofing membranes that protect buildings from environmental and weather hazards.

Reasons why EPDM waterproofing membranes are so effective:


  1. They can withstand temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to +120 degrees, 
  2. Remain flexible throughout the coldest winters
  3. Resistant to ultraviolet rays and ozone damage, 
  4. Offer a life expectancy of 40 years and they won’t shrink, harden, crack, or melt over time. 
  5. They don’t leach out toxins therefore won't pollute the run-off rainwater and they won't discolour masonry. 
  6. Very good durability
  7. Resists the absorption of moisture
  8. Lightweight and easy to manoeuvre making installation a relatively easy process
  9. Used for many waterproofing applications in construction such as under cladding, facade around window frames (applied between window frame and concrete) and low-slope roofing
  10. EPDM membrane can be bonded to a variety of substrates

Why invest in waterproofing membranes from Russetts Developments?

  • In England we often experience heavy rainfall and the constant threat of damp. Waterproofing membranes ensure your building is protected from the elements and keeps moisture outside where it belongs.
  • Waterproofing your building now reduces the chance of water damage. If you notice a tiny leak inside or detect a small patch of damp, chances are that more extensive damage has already occurred even though it isn’t visible. Be proactive and protect the building.
  • We supply some of the highest quality waterproofing membranes on the market and have the expertise and experience to offer the construction industry advice on what quantities to order and installation guidelines.

If you would like more information about the waterproofing strips available from Russetts Developments, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us today. Discover why so many contractors rely on us for waterproofing membranes that keep buildings and structures free from damage caused by damp, rainwater and wind. We look forward to hearing from you.
