Maintenance Free EPDM Roofing

An increasing number of people are choosing maintenance free EPDM rubber to replace their worn out or leaking flat roofs, in preference to the older traditional replacement roofing methods.

The old methods all suffer from the same problems and a few years down the line they end up cracked and leaking. EPDM on the other hand is a "Fit and Forget" solution.

EPDM Roofing Repairs

An increasing number of people are choosing EPDM rubber to replace their worn out or leaking flat roofs.

Over the years many flat roofs have started to crack and leak due to the effects of heat and cold and degradation due to UV rays. The older traditional replacement roofing materials all suffer from the same problems and a few years down the line they too will crack and leak.

A better solution by far is to fit an EPDM rubber roof in place of the old style felt roof.

The main benefit of EPDM is that it is maintenance free. There are other roofing systems available that require a layer of stone chippings or other coatings over the top of them. This is generally done to prevent degradation by UV rays hitting the material and introducing brittleness. Eventually this causes it to crack when it expands and shrinks due to the weather.

The problem is that re-coating regularly and/or clearing up stones that are blown off  the roof is less then ideal and these sorts of measures will never really protect the roof particularly well.

The best all round solution is to fit a new EPDM rubber membrane in place of the old leaking one.

Our team of EPDM rubber roofers are highly trained and specialise in installing high quality systems. Whether you require a new EPDM rubber roof or a repair, we are positive you will not find another EPDM rubber roofing company that will work to our very high standards.

All completed installations are finished with a roof membrane, an attractive metal perimeter if required and are strong enough for frequent foot traffic, this makes them particularly well suited to balconies and terraces.

Due to recent changes in the Building Regulations regarding thermal insulation, there has been an increased demand for insulation in flat roof areas. Our EPDM roofing systems can be installed with insulation to comply with the current Building Regulations. So if you are concerned with ensuring your home is energy efficient we can offer advice on the best way of insulating your flat roof.
