EPDM rubber membrane has become extremely popular within the domestic market in recent years. The simplicity of the product and installation process, coupled with a relatively low cost and a 20 year warranty are big plus points for consumers.
We are approved installers of this roofing system and have completed many installations.
EPDM membrane is a 100% cured single-ply roofing membrane made of a Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer offering:
- Seamless sheets
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes are available in large, seamless sheets of waterproof membrane. The majority of residential and in many instances commercial roofs can be covered with one single sheet without any joins.
- Low life-cycle cost
- This EPDM membrane is more or less maintenance free following initial installation. This feature, combined with the membrane's inherent durability and competitive installion cost, result in a very low life-cycle cost.
- Quick installation
For our trained professionals EPDM installation is a relatively quick process. It requires no flame as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive.
- High flexibility and elongation
EPDM membranes can be installed at low temperatures, enabling installation throughout the year. The membrane can also elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements and cyclic action.
- Environmentally friendly
EPDM is an inert material with limited environmental impact, both during manufacture and installation compared to other roofing membranes.
